Taking Tours on Your Travels
4 days ago
Loathe tours? Amanda knows many thoughtful travellers recoil at the thought of a month-long bus tour of Europe, but there is a time and place for shorter, smaller tours and that’s the topic of Episode 47 of The Thoughtful Travel Podcast.
First up, novelist Natasha Lester tells tales of the amazing private tours she took through Paris, helping her to research the history of fashion in a way that Google could never do. Another Australian novelist, Rachael Johns, then chats with Amanda about the pros and cons of taking small tours - and gives some great examples of being a tourist in your own town too by joining some local tourist guide experiences.
Finally, Emma Mann talks with Amanda about how she’s leaning more towards joining small group tours when she travels solo, largely because it’s a great way to meet some like-minded fellow travellers, and Amanda is all for that!
