Guided sightseeing tours are an extremely popular way to explore a new country, but they’re not a perfect fit for everyone. If you’re thinking of booking one, here’s a couple of things you should keep in mind.

Personal Preferences

If you’re a spontaneous traveler who enjoys discovering a new place on their own, organized tours may not be your thing, but they’re great for everyone who needs a little bit of guidance and local knowledge to figure out a new country.

Budget Restrictions

If you have time and energy to go on a guided tour outside of the city on your own, it will usually cost you less than the actual tour, but you’ll be sacrificing safety and comfort along the way.

Time on Your Hands

Organized tours are a perfect fit if you’re not sticking around somewhere for too long. Figuring out where you want to go and how to get there takes time, and if your schedule is already packed putting aside some extra money for a tour can be a good investment.
