Our independent vacations provide maximum flexibility and value. You'll save money with low hotel rates that tour operators negotiate in advance, and because your vacation doesn't have a set itinerary each day, you're free to spend your time in whatever way you choose.
Tour operators research lodging options in each city and select hotels that are close to major attractions, so you don’t have to look for accommodations yourself. With some packages, transportation between cities, daily breakfasts at hotels and a sightseeing orientation in each city are included in the price. The number of inclusions and quality of hotels vary according to the rating of the package, which we provide for every vacation listed below.
You won't travel with a tour director on an independent trip, as you would on an escorted tour, though some packages include the services of a local host in each city. Your host can recommend restaurants, suggest places to see and help you schedule excursions.
