Pick the right friends.
Maybe it’s true that “the more, the merrier” but it’s certainly untrue when going on a trip. Just choose which friends you are most comfortable with.

Because having this kind of awesome friends on your trip will be great. You will be assured that it will be an awesome experience even having some unexpected events with your journey.
Discuss what each of you is expecting to happen during your trip. Discuss all the things what each of you would like to do on this time. List all these activities in a paper. After you are all done, discuss which the same activities you all prefer to do. Do this or that. Traveling with friends means doing all the things that you all like.
Consider the budget of each.
Traveling with friends doesn’t mean your budget will be the same because you all have different source of incomes and also have different day-to-day expenses. So before you take your journey together, discuss the budget of each one of you. Your budget and the expenses during the travel period should correlate to avoid shortage that will affect all of you.
Divide and conquer.
Even if you are traveling together, each one of you have another place where he/she wants to visit. It’s just normal. Each of you can go to different destinations but you should all agree to the duration and have a meeting place after that. The purpose of your travel is to be happy and if you all like to have a time on your own, then do it. It’s also a great way to cover more grounds especially when the days of travel are not that flexible.
Have a trip leader.
Nominate a trusted team leader that will facilitate and possibly be a referee if there is a fight or misunderstanding between some of you. This can make your travel be in rhythm because you will have someone that you all respect with.
