There was a time when I thought that traveling as part of a tour group would be neat. You don’t have to plan much except for what tour you wanted to go on. Airfare, transportation, lodging, sightseeing, and even some meals are all taken care of. No fuss travel.
Now for the other side of the coin. With group travel you may not be able to spend as much time as you really want at certain places. You also have no control on whether or not you get an early or late start in the day.
I haven’t traveled with a big group since I was in the 8th grade. The band and choir for my school traveled from Germany to London via bus and ferry. I’m sure that is totally different from what tour group travel is like now.
So, what say you. Do you like traveling with a tour group or do you like traveling on your own?
