FYI just to clarify, this is a ;'dress rehearsal' trip that is smaller in scope and therefore price than our official trips starting in summer!

The British Isles are completely missing from the map. I smell conspiracy...

No Ireland/England was just a design issue.

Each trip may or may not include UK destinations!

Competitours has just signed up Amazing Race Season 9 winner Tyler MacNiven (and his Mom!)
as contestants. Imagine the bragging rights of being able to dethrone a bonafide reality TV
champion on his own turf...playing in a team travel competition...but the challenges are based
on being creative and resourceful, not speed and physical prowess.

I'm Tyler MacNiven, I won season 9 of the Amazing Race. If you want to race around the world without being a secret agent or Amazing Race contestant, than Competitours is the best bet. I've been itching for race-mode again so I signed up for a Competitours race this summer. I'll be racing with the fastest lady I know: my Mother. It is a magical experience to charge through foreign landscapes with intense, fun, and creative missions. Come race with us!
