Global Travelers Going Out Group Pages

Welcome to the Global Adventurers Traveling Group!

We are a community of people in the DC metro area who love to travel. This social travel group is for people, in the Washington DC metro area, who enjoy international travel, embassy events, cultural dinners, hiking, outdoor recreation, and other fun activities. This is not a singles or dating group, just people looking to get together and have a good time and travel together. We are the 2nd largest travel Meetup group in the DC metro area! Membership is FREE, and you only have to be friendly and fun to join!

If you have an idea for hosting an event or a trip, just say the word! Singles and couples are welcome and bringing friends along is ALWAYS encouraged!

So come join us! We'd love to have you as a part of our group. Please provide a photo of yourself when you join so that we know who you are when you come out to join us for an event or trip!!! Thanks!

I hope to meet you soon!

  • J.T.


What makes our international trips unique?
  • Our international trips are UNIQUE in that we truly learn about the culture at each of our destinations through cultural dinners, visiting the embassy in DC, reading books, and -of course- by having events with locals at every one of our trips. We are true ADVENTURERS, NOT tourists!!
How do we offer such "awesome trips at reasonable prices" (as one recent traveler put it)?
  • We search the globe far and wide for the best adventure trips at the lowest prices. These usually begin with the big "group tours" that most people hate because they are so impersonal. Instead of just selling you tickets to these big group tours with 50-100 strangers from all over the U.S. like some other Meetup groups do, we arrange a small, private tour just for our group.

    Then we customize those barebones trips to add the most popular optional meals and activities that we think most people would want to do (like welcome dinners, cooking classes, and dance lessons), so that you know up front how much your trip will cost! Next, we upgrade itineraries and accommodation to make them more comfortable and convenient for DC travelers. We also contact embassies to arrange private visits with cultural attaches and diplomats, arrange inclusive dinners at DC's top restaurants and even include a book to help you learn more about the culture!

    Finally, our real "secret" ingredient is bringing together adventurers just like you in the DC area who love to travel and make lasting friendships that start with amazing overseas adventure. Our trip organizer attends the trip with you every step of the way to ensure all travelers have a wonderful experience, and we even takes professional-quality photos of our travelers so that you can have fantastic memories and pictures to show your friends and family.
Do people usually come with others to events / trips or do people show up solo as well?
  • This group is very open and friendly so arriving to an event / trip by yourself is perfectly fine since there will be others who also come alone. People do bring friends but there is also a good mix of first timers and those looking to meet new friends.
