Even when on a tour, do your research

It pays to plan—even when you’re taking a tour. Fodor’s member Vegasgirl83 recently advised first-time travelers to get involved and to research as much of their trip as possible to insure that the adventure is enriching as it can be:

“Be informed about your destination, travel arrangements, etc. Even if you’re going on an organized tour or on a cruise do your own research so that you will know what to expect and what activities you’d like to do, etc. Your trip will really be personalized, memorable and less stressful that way.”
