Independent Vacation Tours

Save up to 40% on Independent Vacation Tours

An independent vacation combines the best parts of escorted and guided tours, with the freedom and flexibility of solo traveling.  On an independent vacation, you will not be part of a group, which gives you the ability to spend your days exactly how you like. A "local host" or "local guide" in each of the cities you visit is available to answer any questions and to give plenty of guidance along the way. Depending on the tour operator and your destination, your local host may visit your hotel, meet you at the airport or be available by phone. He or she can make sightseeing, shopping and dining suggestions as well as give you the "inside scoop" on all of the most important things to see and do while you're in a foreign city.
