Adventure tours rock my world – almost as much as Passionfruit Mojito’s (almost).
And, sometimes they get a bit of a bad rep. The majority of us who have experienced life as part of a tour group wouldn’t look back, but some – rather unfairly – dismiss the idea of adventure touring right off the bat.
