    DescriptionProfessional tour leaders Andy N Robinson and Kirsty McGregor have spent over ten years leading group tours. In It's NOT a Holiday!, they bring this combined experience together into a must read book for all adventure travellers. Fun and informative, It's NOT a Holiday!, will help you understand what group tours involve the types of tour available, what happens on tour as well as offering advice to help you make the most of your time way. The book highlights the A-Z of group travel through real stories and humorous anecdotes from their experience as professional tour leaders. It introduces 20 stereotypical characters you will inevitably find on your own tour and how they cope with the delays, breakdowns, border closures and other hiccups that commonly occur on overland trips. Are you Natural Leader or Sensible Older Person? Can you put up with Whinger and Man-Hater? Do you fancy Single Hot Chick or Nymphomaniac? How will you get on with Oracle, Jester, Baby and Vegetarian? It's NOT a Holiday! should be the first item you pack as you prepare for that organised tour of a lifetime! "Overland and adventure travel has been a way of life for Andy and Kirsty for over 10 years. If there are lessons to be learned about joining a group tour they've learnt them, usually the hard way. In one handy A to Z guide they manage to cover almost every problem and pitfall (and a lot of the delights) that joining an adventurous group can throw at you." Tony Wheeler, Co-Founder of Lonely Planet

    Author Information
    Ten years ago ANDY N ROBINSON travelled through Africa as a passenger on an overland truck. Hooked on overlanding, Andy has worked as an overland expedition leader ever since. He specialises in long haul trips throughout the Middle East, Iran, India, China, Central & South East Asia and Latin America. Travelling independently in the Middle East, KIRSTY MCGREGOR stumbled on the concept of overlanding and has never looked back. For the best part of a decade Kirsty has worked as an overland expedition leader throughout Africa, Europe, Central & South East Asia, Central & South America and Australia.
    Review quote
    "Overland and adventure travel has been a way of life for Andy and Kirsty for over 10 years. If there are lessons to be learned about joining a group tour they've learnt them, usually the hard way. In one handy A to Z guide they manage to cover almost every problem and pitfall (and a lot of the delights) that joining an adventurous group can throw at you." Tony Wheeler, Co-Founder of Lonely Planet "'It's Not a Holiday', is a brilliant book all about going on an organised tour with a group of people. It is full of humour and I laughed out loud whilst reading it. Gap years are no longer just for students and taking a tour to far away places has become very popular. The authors of this book have been tour guides and or drivers on such overland tours and are very experienced as shown by the content. If you have ever considered a tour to places like Africa, Asia and South America where you want to see the real people and experience the local sights by driving across the land and eating, living and embracing these cultures then this book is a must. It tells you what to expect and what is expected of you, don't be surprised if it shocks you, forewarned is always forearmed and this way you're more likely to have fun and enjoy the trip." Rosie Amber, British Author & Reviewer
