So much of the budget travel experience involves getting the most for all the money you spend on airfares, hotels and other necessities. Once you arrive and that day for exploring is at hand, you must maximize your travel investment. One of the best ways to do that is to arrange a walking tour.
Many budget travelers hesitate when it comes to joining a tour of any kind. Many of us are independent travelers who don't spend money on group tour trips. But joining a small group for a few hours is not the same as riding a bus with the same 30 people for two weeks. There are also guides who will work exclusively for you and your travel party.
How do you find such a guide? What should you consider as you plan this day of exploring? Here is a step by step process for finding a walking tour and hiring a tourist guide on a budget.
