It's a truly great way to travel the world. You meet all kinds of new friends from all around the world. The tour guides are knowledgeable about the local area and have local friends to help guide the fun. While they advertise no boring sight seeing, there are always those in the group that want to go see the sights, so you can do that as well, if you can manage to get it of bed on time.
