When you are taking a tour of the sights of a city, or touring a specific attraction, you can either take a self-guided tour or join a group with an experienced travel guide.
To be the right fit for a tour guide led experience, you need to have a curiosity about a specific site and like the idea of participating in a group activity. This type of tour is not for you if you prefer to explore things on your own and are more independent-minded.
People who like guided tours like to take advantage of the educational benefits of the tours, all which makes visiting a site or city more special and interesting to them. They may feel unsure about venturing out on their own and feel this type of tour experience is safer.
If you are someone who likes to follow an itinerary when you travel and would like someone to show you the way, so to speak, you will like being part of a group tour.
Also, a group tour is a great way to get to know others from different locales who have the same interest in a city or destination.
Therefore, a group tour is right for you if you like to explore new surroundings with other people and would feel more confident about visiting a location with an experienced travel guide.
If you want to focus on enhancing your social and educational experiences when traveling, a group-led tour will appeal to you.
