At Young Pioneer Tours we consider ourselves the experts when it comes to mega tours and travel.
We run a lot of tours to a lot of places, some of them are very short, but some are what we like to refer to as mega tours. What is a mega tour? To us it is one of our monster tours that goes to multiple countries over a long period of time, such as our famous Eurasian Adventure Tour and our Least Visited Countries Tours. These are mega tours, but more on them later.
Here’s our mega tours and travel options for what we hope will be glorious 2024.

This tour also takes you to Eritrea, which is really a time-travel experience as the country hasn’t changed much since Italian colonization. In both of these countries, you’ll spectate events related to their independence in the form of the military parade of the Somaliland Independence Day and the Mass Games of Eritrea. To make sure you get a real insight into the Horn of Africa, we’ve made sure to include Djibouti and its incredible natural phenomena to the combo.
