Is it better to choose a guided tour or organize a trip by yourself? Why?



Sometimes I love independent solo travel, but there are definitely benefits to joining a tour group. I think if you are a beginner and don’t have travelling experience it’s advisable to join a tour group.

When you’re travelling solo, you’re the one who’s responsible for finding accommodation, finding food and drink and making sure you get the best from your destination.

On tour, your guide will tell you where you’re going each morning, probably take you there and give you facts about everything you see along the way too.

When you travel by yourself, in a country where you don’t speak the language, there’s no one to ask questions you might have. On a tour, your tour guide is there to help.

       It’s much easier to make friends on tours than by hoping to start conversations in hostel common rooms. You can quickly work out who you think you’d like to talk to.

Whichever tour company you go with, they’ll have spent years and worked out the best itinerary. You can trust a good tour company to show you the best of a destination.

With a tour group and you’ll always have a tour leader to advise if things go wrong. When you travel in a group your leader can arrange group discounts on activities, food and drinks. As part of a tour your transport can sometimes access areas you wouldn’t be able to do by yourself.

Of course a lot will depend on your positive attitude and a sense of fun.

3. What questions should you ask a travel agent to learn more about a tour?

What documents do I need to travel?

Where are we going to stay at night during the tour?

How long does the tour last?

I wonder what places of interest we are going to visit.

Are excursions included in the price?

 

4. You have visited some foreign countries. Which of them did you like most and would recommend your friend to visit?

If you don’t know where to spend your holidays, you should first identify your interests. If you are keen on history, ancient and medieval times, Italy is the best destination for you. In Rome you will get in touch with Roman Empire, in Florence you will get acquainted with the Middle Ages. Every Epoch can be found in Italy. Nature lovers also can find something to their taste in Italy. Mountains, the sea, lakes, islands… So in my opinion, Italy is the best destination for any type of travellers.

5. Today people are tired of exotic countries and prefer to spend holidays in the countryside in Belarus. What can attract people to it?

The real treasure of Belarus is its wonderful nature. The country has hundreds of wild forests, rolling hills, green valleys, sweet­scented meadows and golden fields. Beloveshzkaya Pushcha is the only place where you can meet mighty European bison in the wild. In 1992, the Belovezhskaya Pushcha National Park, a natural heritage object and a unique European forest reserve which has been protected since the 14th century, was the first one to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Belarus is also famous for its clear lakes and ribbon­like rivers, that’s why it’s called a blue­eyed one. The resorts of lakes Naroch and Braslav are open all year round and let tourists experience the unforgettable peaceful atmosphere.

In 2000, the Mir Castle Complex, which was built at the beginning of the 16th century, was also added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. The successful combination of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance architecture2 makes Mir Castle one of Europe’s most impressive castles. For centuries the Nesvizh Palace used to be the residence of the Radziwills, one of the richest families in Europe. Today the National Historical and Cultural Museum­Reserve Nesvizh is a wonderfully restored castle, which is visited by hundreds of tourists from all parts of the world. No wonder, it has become a landmark of Belarus.
