Tour or independent

Jump to last reply

Planning a 14 to 15 day trip to London, Paris, and possibly Amsterdam. Our travel agent is pushing a tour even though we don't want that. She insists our cost will be much lower, even though we are willing to pay more. After declining the tour, she came back with an alternative tour group that gives you more time to explore on your own. Again, I said no. I don't have an aversion to tour groups, have been on one to Scotland and Ireland, but I want to spend more time in these cities, exploring and soaking in the culture etc. She insists that we need a "go to person" at each locale. No, we do not speak French, but nor do many other travelers. Any suggestions or feedback would be appreciated.
