Many travelers who aren’t confident enough to explore a new place on their own join guided sightseeing tours. These tours are a great way to learn new things and meet new people, but are they always worth the price?
Short on Time
Guided tours can come in handy when you don’t have enough time to explore a city on your own. Instead of putting extra time and energy into planning a trip on your own, join a tour that covers most of the places you wanted to see anyway.
Short on Money
Most major cities offer free walking tours, so you won’t have to break a bank to join one. If you’re interested in guided day trips and special tours, planning them on your own is usually cheaper, but it can be time-consuming.
If you’re a true explorer who enjoys discovering new things on your own, guided tours may not be your thing. At the end of the day, it all comes down to personal preference, and people who need some guidance enjoy sightseeing tours much more than spontaneous travelers.
