In partnership with EF Go Ahead Tours Canada

Tuesday, December 10th 2019, 5:30 am - As snow builds across Canada, many of us are itching for a vacation! Lucky for you we’ve done the research and have found the most exclusive and efficient way to see the world.

Guided experiences with EF Go Ahead Tours is not only an affordable way to travel but also ensures you’ll be making the most of your time abroad by exploring it with the people who know your location best.

“A typical day starts with a full breakfast at your hotel followed by a guided sightseeing tour,” says George Levesque, VP of EF Go Ahead Tours Canada. “These sightseeing tours are led by expert local guides who know your destination inside and out. Then, you may have free time to pursue your own interests, or you can add an excursion to dive even deeper into your destination’s culture.”

One of the myths around guided travel is that vacationers don’t have enough time on their own however, once you see the itinerary, you will realize there are multiple options to take in your destination at your own pace.

“Our team works hard to plan the right amount of activities for each destination, so travelers can make the most of wherever they go. Our flexible itineraries often include free afternoons or evenings,” says Levesque.

One of the top reasons people love guided travel is because it maximizes your time.

“Skipping the lines at popular attractions, taking efficient modes of transportation between locations, and scheduling activities to maximize your time are just some of the ways guided tours can make your actual travel more enjoyable,” explains Levesque.

It’s easy to take the wrong subway or miss the ferry while travelling solo! Pre purchasing tickets and researching routes take time and are not always the most efficient way of getting around. On a guided tour all the planning is done for you -- you simply just have to show up!

Guided experiences also suit family adventures.

“We’ve seen lots of families embrace multi-generational travel—it’s a great way to reconnect, get inspired, and make memories together. Plus, our Heritage tours are a popular way for families to travel together and uncover your shared history,” says Levesque.

These organized experiences also allow you to see the culture of your destination like no other! Some of EF’s experiences allow people to go right into the homes of locals where you enjoy a “home-hosted dinner.” Or indulge in a personal invite into a historic castle.
