Common Myths About Escorted Tours

Common Myths About Escorted Tours


Myth #1: Escorted Tours are Expensive

Tour companies are often able to negotiate special rates and contracts with suppliers, and their industry experience means that escorted tours are designed to maximize efficiency and cost-effectiveness. While looking at the price of an escorted tour, it may look higher than other trips, but in reality it is a perfectly pre-packaged vacation designed to take the planning piece out so all you have to do is show up.

Myth #2: You’ll have no time to explore on your own

Leisure time is built into each city stay on most tours. Escorted tours have long itineraries filled with action-packed days, but really, you can do as much or as little as you’d like; take advantage of your tour guide’s expert local knowledge to make the most of your free time.

Myth #3: You’re stuck on a cramped bus all day

Escorted tours use a variety of transportation in-destination, including luxury motor coaches, trains, ferries and flights. Your transportation time is minimal compared to the amazing sights and activities you will see.

Myth #4: Tours are only for retirees

Travelers range in age, from children to adults from 18 to 80, and everywhere in between. Chances are you will have a melting pot of people all different ages and from all walks of life. One of the best parts of an escorted tour is having the chance to get to know so many different people who share the same curiosity.
