You might think that guided travel tours are so not cool and much too restrictive. That’s partially true but group touring in a fancy motorcoach lets you sit back, enjoy the sights, all the while hearing a bit of history and current culture stories. Most tour companies give you a free day or two to explore on your own. So if it is your first trip abroad, package deals are ideal. Guided tours will give you invaluable tips to make the next one on your own.
For instance, Globus Journeys makes travel to Europe relatively simple with bundled packages that include round-trip airfare from your hometown, all transportation and accommodations, and even some meals.
