Independent Vacations

Our independent vacations provide maximum flexibility. 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 whichever way you choose.

Expert travel planners 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. In some cases, 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 on this site.

You won't travel with a tour director on an independent trip, as you would on a guided tour, though some packages include the services of a local host in each city. Your host can recommend restaurants and help you plan sightseeing activities.
