An "adhoc tour group" (also called "independent") describes people who end up traveling with each other by accident just because they wanted to see a particular tourist destination and they all happened to be going that way. They don't know each other when they board the plane.

An "incentive tour group" on the other handle, describes people who have an incentive (or reason) not just to travel, but to travel with each other. A business team who are going to a conference - a church group visiting Israel - a group of scientists attending a colloqium. These people do know each other before they start the trip.

At least - that's what I've found so far!
