Choose to take an Independent tour and be in charge of your tour experience.
You might have stumbled across a charming Mexican village and feel like delaying your flight by another day. Or maybe you have a long-lost cousin in the Adelaide suburbs you need to visit.
Or, perhaps, you feel like staying underneath the duvet all day after sinking too many cocktails last night. Due to the strict time schedule of many escorted tours, you rarely have the freedom to pursue these options.
It offers a more immersive experience
Escorted tours are excellent for showcasing essential sights in a limited time frame. But unfortunately they don’t allow customers carte blanche to tootle off and immerse themselves in local life, whether it’s staying at a family guesthouse, travelling on public transport or spending hours soaking up the ambience and befriending locals in a café.
It forces you to learn the local lingo
Most escorted tours have a translator or a guide fluent in the native language. For those who want to pick up the local tongue, independent travel is possibly better, as it forces you to order food and strike up conversations in the local language (or at least jab away and start gesticulating wildly at the translation app on your phone).
