Destinations Things To Do Tours

Tour Types

Like everything else, tours come in all different shapes and sizes. If you want to be alone and chauffeured around, there are private tours where you’ll be picked up at your hotel and driven around for a full or half day. Then there are the small day or half day group tours which vary in size from 15 people to 50. The smaller the groups tend to be more personable giving you more of an opportunity to ask questions of your tour guide You will also get to know them and your fellow travelers better. We find the smaller the group, the better and more informed the tour. You may also purchase audio tours where it allows you to do a self guided tour. Then there are the planned larger tours that can cover anywhere from 5- 30 days. The upside to these tours is that they are escorted with almost all the planning done for you. The downside is they do not give you flexibility to change your agenda. You typically book these with a travel agency or tour company that specializes in these types of tours. Everyday is pre-planned with activity and some days have free periods for you venture out on your own or to take a nap. If your transportation from one location to the other isn’t a cruise ship, it will most likely be a bus. Tours can include certain amenities like, pre-paid access to attractions with a guide, hotel rooms and some will also provide several pre-arranged diners when staying over night at a location. Some tours have flights built into their cost but you will be required to take the flight they book you on. On other tours you will be required to book and pay for your own flight.  Ask questions as to what is all included so you do not have any surprises. Nothing more frustrating then arriving at the airport only to find out you have no ticket to your destination hotel or meeting place. In addition to what you may want to consider buying an activity like biking, renting a scooter or other outdoor activities, transportation excursions like a dinner cruise and priority access to certain landmarks.
