There must be something in the air this year, because already we’ve been hearing almost everyone we know talk about their 2018 travel plans. And the big question is: where in the world do you want to explore this year?
Wherever you decide, the most important thing is to make sure you do it right… which is why tours are one of the most popular ways to travel and take in as much of a destination as possible. And no, we’re not talking about 20-somethings on a continental pub crawl – we’re talking about comprehensive tour packages (for grown ups!) including hotel accommodation, comfortable coach travel, meals, activities and more, all lead by an experienced guide, allowing you to stress less about the travel details and enjoy more of what each location has to offer.
We’ve always got new and exciting tour packages on offer at Scoopon, and in the interest of kick-starting your annual travel plans, we’ve compiled our ultimate list of must-take tours in 2018.
