|Subject: Re: Organized Tours|
I guess i have to come out in favour of escorted tours with a caveat.
I enjoy tours and i enjoy going on my own. I don't mind the up and out
every morning, but... for short periods. I don't know how people manage
these tours you see in the brochures that last a month!!! 10-12 days is
my limit. I just included a 6 day Globus tour through Scotland and that
was plenty. You have to realize what tours are about or you will be disappointed.
They are only meant to give you an overview of places and things. There
will be places you wish you could stay longer and places that you thought
you stayed too long. Everything is done for you which appeals to a lot
I've taken tours and i've traveled on my own, at least from city to city with and with out a companion. I expect tours will still be in my future for part of my travel adventures.
I've just returned from nearly a month in the UK, only 6 days of which were tour and will post a travelogue once i figure out how to condense the novel i wrote in my journal! :))
