In the modern world, traveling became a fashion activity gradually. There is much debate over whether traveling in a group led by a tour guide is the best way or not. Some people hold with this standpoint, others, however, disagree with it. Depending on personal experience, personality type and emotional concern, it is more advisable to agree with the latter one, that is objecting the statement.
The chief reason for my view is that traveling in a group is subjected to your freedom. For instance, you are attracted by a landscape, looking at it for a long time, while other people want to leave for the next dot, you have to stop your enjoying to follow the group. Moreover, you cannot have a break or have lunch at anytime you like, otherwise you may lag behind your friends.
Another reason can be seen by every one is traveling in a group led by a guide is intolerable. You are tired of hearing what the guide chattering,â€ So-and-so was borned on 4th,April, 1956,and died on 5th,May, 1987 â€¦â€¦â€ something like that during all process. In that case, you may have no time to enjoy the place themselves.
Although I agree that there are a couple of advantages of traveling in a group with a guide, I feel that the disadvantages are more obvious.
In a word, traveling alone or with one or two good friends of yours is preferable, but not travel with a mass people led by a guide. So it is sagacious to choose this viewpoint.
