Step 1
Recruit a group of people with interest in traveling to a particular destination. The easiest way to do this is to recruit friends and family as well as friends of friends by word of mouth. You can also recruit people by creating groups on social networking sites such as Facebook, or through free classified ads on websites such as Craigslist, or by creating a website targeting people interested in taking your trip.
Step 2
Meet to plan the basics of the trip. Decide on when you want to take the tour, what sites you want to visit and how much you are all willing to spend. If your group does not live in one area, you may want to start by coming up with an outline for the trip and then recruit people interested in your plan.
Step 3
Contact lodging, tour operators and transportation. If you can get 10-15 people together, you should be able to get a group discount or even travel for free with your group. You may also be able to hire a private tour for your group if you can recruit enough people. Get the best quotes and tally expenses for your trip.
Step 4
Come up with a detailed expense ledger and collect money from your group. Tell people what expenses they need to pay up front and how much money they will need to bring for food and other essentials. Once you collect the money, make reservations.
Step 5
Come up with a packing list for your group. If you're going off the beaten path, be sure to include all necessary safety equipment.
