Tour Directors are chosen for their knowledge, experience and passion for travel. They are there to help you get the most out of your holiday. Of course they can help you with travel queries and itinerary details but they are also there to help you understand the history of a region or city, immerse yourself in the culture and show you things you might not find in a guide book. They know when and where to look for wildlife and can help you with language and customs. If you prefer to be left to discover for yourself you can, but if you want them they are there for you.
