Reasons to Take a Guided Tour
Secret spots and great tips, the guides know where the best things are to do, see, eat, drink, and avoid.
It takes a special kind of person to be a guide. Dedication, training, and a love for what they do are the common attributes of most guides. They are friendly and engaging, and they are great at getting people to interact. When groups are involved, they can become fast and lifelong friends.
Using local guides also supports the local economy of the destination you are visiting, with your money going back to local businesses and their community.
Tour leaders are with you from the time your trip commences until it concludes and they work tirelessly to ensure your tour runs smoothly. They understand travel styles and expectations of the tour you booked and they can tailor trips to the group’s interests, that way everyone has a great experience.
For solos, small or even large groups, you can get the help you need from your guide.
You can forget the stress of researching the best routes or trying to decide to go by car, bus, or train. No searching for hours on end on where the next town might be to find food, activities, or accommodations.
On a tour, the “boring stuff” is taken care of for you. The experts let you focus on the exciting adventure ahead.
