Planning an overseas trip on your own can seem overwhelming because there are so many aspects to consider whilst planning a dream vacation. New Zealand is an especially unique destination due to the seemingly endless options for travelers. It has everything from wine trails, to adventure travel, to the world famous Hobbiton. Well, what if you want to “see it all” but aren’t sure how? Escorted tours can take away the hassle and allow you to discover a country’s most popular destinations and enjoy the local culture with like-minded travelers.
We want to show you some of the benefits and how to make the best of your guided tour!
One of the greatest thing about all-inclusive vacations is that they’re just that, all-inclusive! You can rest assured that everything from reservations to lodging to transportation is completely handled. Your only job is to wake up in the morning and the rest is up to us.
Escorted tours are among the most cost-effective ways to travel. Package prices typically include the price of entire trip i.e. meals, transportation & lodging. In fact, according to the United States Tour Operators Associated, escorted tours can save you as much as 40 percent. This allows you to budget more effectively, and to spend a little extra on the incredible local cuisine and shopping during free time.
One of the main draws of escorted tours are the guides. Most tour guides are locals with years of experience who can offer an insider’s view as well as an in-depth knowledge of the country. These guides are able to offer insights into Maori culture and show you some hidden treasures of New Zealand, so ask as many questions as you want.
Be sure to take advantage of the social benefits that go along with escorted tours, these are especially beneficial to solo travelers. New friends are easy to gain through guided vacations; after all, travelling with a group of people who are experiencing the same sites creates endless topics of conversation. These tours give you the chance to meet new people from all over the world, don’t be afraid to make some new friends!
