The Pros and Cons of Guided Tours

If you have ever considering going on a guided vacation, you will probably only see all the things that make these types of tours amazing. The reality is that there are a great many benefits to going on vacation through a tour operator like Globus Tours, as we will discuss. However, a vacation is something that costs a lot of money, money that you have worked very hard for, so you need to make sure that you also know what the disadvantages are. That way, you can make an informed decision about whether or not it is the right type of vacation for you. First, however, let’s take a look at some of the things that make guided tours so great.

Five Pros of Guided Tours

There are five main advantages to taking part in a guided tour:

  1. You will be able to see some of the most amazing things of various town and cities, depending on your destination. Rather than being stuck in one place, escorted tours allow you to experience it all.
  2. You will generally have priority entrance at various attractions. This means you don’t have to spend half your vacation standing in a queue.
  3. Your luggage will generally be handled for you. If you do go from one destination to another, all you will have to do is make sure your luggage is packed. It will then be taken from one place to the next for you.
  4. You will have the services at hand of local guides and experts, who will generally speak both your language and the local language. As such, you won’t miss a thing.
  5. Some meals will be included in your travel, although this does depend on the tour operator. Some are all inclusive, others are fully self-catering.

Five Cons of Guided Tours

So what about the downsides? When looking at reviews or online information, it seems as if guided tours offer nothing but golden sunshine. In reality, however, there are a few distinct disadvantages as well. These include:

  1. You will be on a very tight schedule and you may have to wake up quite early some mornings.
  2. Whether or not your trip is enjoyable will be dependent on your group as well. Although you can expect most people in your group will have similar interests to you, since they have booked on a guided tour as well, there can be personality clashes. You will be stuck with the same people for the duration of your vacation, so this can be a serious problem.
  3. If you want to take part in excursions that aren’t on the program, you will have to pay more and you won’t get any help in terms of getting there.
  4. The travel time between different stops can be boring and tedious.
  5. Sometimes, you will experience a bit of an information overload as so much will be thrown at you in such a short period of time.

It is up to you to decide which five points weight the heaviest.

Drag your heels to the Walking Dead filming locations

Outdoor TravelerWhen you are a fan of the Walking Dead series, seeing some of the actual shoot locations close up is a thrilling experience. A physical visit puts you right there in the scene and enables you to re-live some of the show’s most dramatic events from a personal perspective.

Rick’s house is one such location. On screen, it’s the place he retreats to after suffering a serious gunshot wound. In real life, the house is located in Atlanta, Georgia opposite Grant Park and Zoo Atlanta. You can see how the building actually looks, then work out the degree of window dressing it took to transform it for the screen.

Also in Georgia is the Highway Overpass, where in the series, the Federal Rescue Service set up a quarantine zone, blocking anyone one from entering or leaving the city of Savannah. In the ensuing panic, a fuel tanker collides with the barricades and sends people fleeing in all directions. It’s a massive scene and by being there yourself, you can visualize the amount of effort that went into its creation. You can see tangible evidence that this is a real place, not simply a CGI masterpiece, and the next time you watch the action on TV, you can say you were really there.

In real life, the Walking Dead survivor’s camp is a few miles from downtown Atlanta in a place called Bellwood Quarry. It can easily be reached by bus, and if you make the effort to get there, it makes sense to take a hike to the bottom. The city purchased the quarry in 2006 and is in the process of converting it into a 1.9 billion gallon reservoir and 300 acre park.

If you love visiting unusual and unique vacation spots, take inspiration from Outdoor Traveler, which has a range of original and exciting destinations for you to choose from and is perfect for families, couples and groups who love the great outdoors. The destinations are spread across the US. At each spot, you’ll get a chance to take in the local sights, learn about the area’s history and make your own adventures depending on what you love to do.

We all look forward to taking a break, and holidays help us unwind and get back to who we really are. In Georgia, there’s something for everyone, from relaxing escapes to big city action – just write your must-do list before you leave!

Amazing Images of Historic Egypt

Egypt is an incredibly striking place: A country where the modern jostles alongside the impossibly old. Ancient Egyptian myths and stories continue to fascinate people all over the world, and the exciting thing is that you can still visit many different parts of Egypt and see evidence of these ancient myths right before your eyes.

The Valley of the Kings is a good place to start if you’re planning an Egyptian holiday. This is the famous archaeological site, explored by many—including Howard Carter, who found the tomb of Tutankhamun in 1922. The valley contains 63 tombs that are known of, 26 of which were made for kings and the others for royal family members or other elite states people. You can visit fifteen of them.

The Temple of Wadi el-Sebua. Lake Nasser:

The huge statue of Horus as a falcon, Temple of Horus, Edfu.


Ray of light piercing the Temple of Horsu, Edfu:


Kalabasha temple, Aswan:


Grif Husayn (Temple of Rameses II), Aswan


The next place on your Egyptian tour should be Cairo. In Cairo, the colour of the stone changes from a rich red to a pale sand, but the sun is still hot and the sky is very blue. Cairo is a bustling modern city but has still retained some of its monuments. The most visited of these has to be the pyramids and the Sphinx which is very close by.




Part of the Memphis pyramid:


There is a regular light and sound show held at the Pyramids. Various light effects are aimed at the monuments, along with music and explanation. It’s educational, telling something of the history of the site, and very striking.


Many of the buildings in Cairo are so well preserved, that despite the fact that they are ancient you would think that they’d been put up only yesterday. Here is the Mohammed Ali Mosque, built between 1824-1857:


This is how it looks inside:


Another view of the Mohammed Ali Mosque’s interior:


Two different, equally magnificent mosques, the Sultan Hassan and Al Rifa’I Mosques, Cairo


Finally, when visiting Egypt, take the time to visit the city of Alexandria, on the coast. It has a great sense of history, being such a major point since its founding in 331BC that many cultures have seized control of it. From the Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Andalusians, French and British, almost all have left their mark.

Visit the library in Alexandria while you are there. The outside of the building shows alphabetic letters from every language in the world, carved in granite.


Inside it is gracious and calm:


Alexandria beach, showing the 15th Century Fort Qaitbey citadel:


Ruins of the Roman amphitheatre in Alexandria:


As you can see, Egypt is striking, charming, and picturesque, all at once. There are so many photo opportunities it’s hard to know where to stop, once you start, and the feeling of being steeped in history won’t leave you, even when you return home.

How To Tell The Greek Islands Apart

Which Greek island would suit you best? Whatever you choose, you are guaranteed a beautiful holiday in the sunshine, with stunning beaches and great food. If you’re touring around the islands, you don’t have to worry too much about telling them apart, but if you have to choose just one, it can be hard to know which island will provide your ideal holiday. Let’s take a look at some of the main differences between a sample selection…


Santorni used to be known as Kallisti, or “for/to the most beautiful” in Greek, which was also written on the Golden Apple of Discord in Ancient Mythology (check out the story here!). Santorni used to be a much bigger island, but due to a volcanic eruption in 1630 BC, a great chunk of the land collapsed into the sea, leaving the crescent island we know today.


Mykonos is famous for its bohemian and LGBT roots, and is still a haven for the gay community. However, that’s not all there is to Mykonos. The beautiful whitewashed buildings, next to golden sands, strike a picture-perfect image. Just be careful of cruise ships docking, because these tourists really flood the area.


Previously under British possession, famous writer and painter, Edward Lear, popularised Corfu, one of the greenest islands in Greece. There are thousands of olive trees across the landscape, and although it can be quite touristy, there are areas that are nicely rural and removed from the tourist track. Just travel in-land to experience Greece as it’s meant to be.


Crete could be its own country. It’s probably one of the few islands that could actually feed itself, so this is one of the best places to visit for a fantastic foodie experience. In-land, you can find ruined chapels and palaces, as well as some of the best hiking opportunities you will come across in Greece.


When it comes to rich history and architecture, Rhodes has this in spades. We’re talking Crusader castles, medieval towns, and frescoed churches. Walk around the walled old town and take in the mountainous scenery. Be aware that, for this reason, Rhodes can be quite touristy.


For gorgeous seas and more beaches than you can shake a stick at, Skiathos is your island. It’s also another verdant holiday destination, even though the forest unfortunately burned down in 2007. You can find people from all over the world in Skiathos during the summer, although tourists from colder climates tend to come to Skiathos in the spring or autumn (for more moderate temperatures). There is a reliable bus service around the island, so if you can’t rent a car, don’t worry!


hydra island

Hydra is the perfect island to get away from the hubbub of your hectic life and just enjoy relaxing in a relaxed, romantic setting. Cars are banned in Hydra, so you either have to use donkeys or walk! This is one of the few Greek islands largely untouched by modernisation. Hydra has been the birthplace of no less than five Greek Prime Ministers, and has more than 300 churches and 6 monasteries.


Naxos has quite wild, unkempt scenery, and is another one of the few islands that could feed its population with sheep, goats, and cattle. The range of cheeses on Naxos is fantastic, but take a good map if you plan to go exploring; it’s easy to get lost.


You can tell that Patmos was created from volcanic activity – the amazing landscape and charming islets lend to fantastic beaches and some stunning monasteries. There is something exceptionally tranquil about Patmos, so if you need to unwind and take it slow, Patmos is an idyllic option.


Paros comes with everything you’d expect from a Greek island: fun and lively cafés, sandy beaches, fishing harbours full of tethered boats, and whitewashed buildings. You will find a lot of local spirit in Paros that you may not find as much on the other islands.

So, which one sounds best to you?

Whether you are a chill out on the beach type or you prefer to experience absolutely everything the local culture has to offer…. travelling is the one thing that brings us all together. Unfortunately, many of us put off trips, vacations, and sensational getaways. Why does it happen? Money.

Know the saying, the early bird catches the worm? When it comes to saving money on your airfare, nothing could be more accurate.

Bring Along All Of The Essentials

Packing smart is another great way to save. That doesn’t mean remembering to bring your toothbrush, an extra pair of shoes, or that new shirt you bought especially for the occasion. The items you bring with you can allow you to save an awful lot of money. For instance, why not pack some granola bars or hard candies?

The more you look around the more likely you are to enjoy your travel plans for a whole lot less.

Planning a Picturesque Trip To France


Who doesn’t dream of France? It is one of the most beautiful, luxurious, and picture perfect countries in the entire world. Home to some of the most photographed sites, some truly iconic attractions, and plenty of unique culture…. it is one of the most travelled countries. An estimated 83 million tourists visit each and every year. Could you be one of them? If France has been on your travel to-do list for far too long…. listen up! This is your chance to start planning the ultimate getaway.

Figure Out How You Will Get There
First thing is first. You want to enjoy an unforgettable trip to France, right? Then you need to take care of the basics. Start thinking about when you want to visit (spring is a particularly beautiful time of year!), popular hotels or hostels to stay at, your budget, and who you will travel with. These are all essential when planning your picturesque vacation. Something equally important? Determining how you will get there. When it comes to the latter, it all depends on where you live. You may need to take an international flight, drive or take a bus, or even take the ferry to France.

Do Your Research Beforehand
There is so much more to planning a trip than booking your tickets, finding accommodations, and filling up your suitcase. Especially when you are travelling to another country. So, be sure to do your research beforehand. Find out what currency is used (the Euro, in case you were wondering), how much things cost, whether you will require travellers health insurance, if your cell phone will work or not within the country, and so on.

You will also want to make sure you have a vague grasp of the language – or make sure you keep a French-English dictionary on you at all times. Alternatively, you could also download an app to make translation a breeze! Other things to research prior to that incredible trip to France? Emergency phone numbers, typical weather conditions, and even etiquette, customs, and rules that must be followed. The more you know before you get there, the better your trip will be!


Come Up With a Realistic Itinerary

The next thing to do is start coming up with your itinerary. Remember to be realistic. You may want to see absolutely everything the cities of France have to offer…. but if your getaway is only a week long, that probably isn’t going to happen. Think about the city or cities you are staying in. Then start to prioritize your must-see list. Do you refuse to visit Paris without visiting the Eiffel Tour? Is the Louvre or the Palais Garnier somewhere you have always wanted to see? Whether you have been dreaming up a trip to Disneyland Paris or Notre Dame, now is your chance. Plan your itinerary before you arrive in France.

There is no doubt about it: France is an incredible place to visit. Make sure your next adventure is exciting and memorable. Simply figure out how you will get there, do your research, and create an itinerary. Seeing the world has never been simpler!
