Do you walk on the wild side when you travel?
Practicalities and value aside, walking tours are just plain fun! There are walking tours that offer a general oversight of a city as well as very specific neighbourhood and interest based tours for those interested in something a little bit different. My favourite tour company, London Walks, offers excursions on every topic and interest imaginable in London. I used to plan my walks not based on the subject, but instead on what was easiest for my schedule and I was never once disappointed by the diverse offerings.
As always, I welcome and encourage your comments. What is your favourite kind of tour? Do you prefer a self-guided tour or one with a professional guide?
