These vacations usually spend 2 or 3 nights in each location visited and usually only a few locations are visited. A tour guide is normally not included, but there is usually a host available to answer questions and suggest sightseeing. Few meals and some sightseeing are typically included, but a lot of free time to explore is available. These vacations are ideal for independent travelers looking to set their own pace.
What's Included on an Independent Tour?
On an independent vacation, you will not be part of a group and you will have more freedom to spend your days exactly how you like, but with plenty of guidance along the way when you request it. A "local host" or "local guide" in each of the cities you visit is available to answer any questions you may have while you're on vacation. Depending on the tour operator and your destination, your local host may visit your hotel, meet you at the airport or be available by phone. He or she can make sightseeing, shopping and dining suggestions -- wonderful way to get the "inside scoop" on all the most important things to see and do while you're in a foreign city.
