As I grow older and some say wiser, I find that travelling to far-flung destinations can be arduous. I honestly believe that escorted tours are the only way to go, especially to more exotic locations. All the hassle is removed. My wife and I choose escorted tours whenever possible. On these selected tours experts guide us to places that we would not have found on our own. In most cases all our luggage is taken care of, hotels and restaurants booked, most meals and daily included tours arranged, and any minor problems looked after, worry free. Best of all we find that the cost is usually less than if we had booked the trip ourselves, as escorted tours use their buying power to get better prices. Slice of Life Tours headed up by Christine Cockburn has a range of guided tours available.
Christine also has an online meetup group which offers the opportunity for like-minded travel enthusiasts to get together and talk travel. A great opportunity for solo and single travellers to meet and possibly find the perfect travel companions.
Coming up in 2017 include “Magical Flores and Mystical Ubud Cultural and Foodie Tour and Sicily to Malta Mediterranean Odyssey. Ubud has a three-day pass to the ‘Ubud Food Festival’, including invitations to opening and closing night parties. In Sicily, the group stays for three days at the Regaleali Estate which dates back to the early days of Nobility. Fall Foliage Tour includes B&B stays and hot ballooning over Vermont.
