Tours can be a really great way to travel, especially if you’re a new traveler. Someone else takes care of the logistics and planning, which means you have less to worry about. You can enjoy your trip and take in the whole experience without the anxiety of getting from one place to the next.

Of course there are disadvantages of taking a tour as well, like less flexibility. It’s always good to weigh the pros and cons before you make a decision.

From longer organized tours to half and full day tours, this page has everything you need to know to choose a tour. You’ll also find tour reviews and interviews with other travelers who have taken tours. And if you’re looking for something a little more unique, there are posts and interviews about traveling with a purpose.

All About Taking Tours

Not all tours are created equal. Beyond that, different destinations call for different ways of traveling. There are definitely some places and experiences that are much better when organized as a tour. Here is a set of posts on how to decide if a tour is right for you and how to pick one.

All About Food Tours & Food Tour Reviews

Food tours are like two tours in one because you get to explore the city or neighborhood, and you get to eat lots of delicious things along the way.

We love food tours so much, we’ve written several posts so you’ll understand why you should take a food tour and what to look for when booking one. We’ve also reviewed the food tours we’ve taken and interviewed other travelers about their food tours.

I like G Adventures and Intrepid for multi-day organized tours, and Viator for day tours.
