Get to know the other tour participants

Happy Presidents Day! (Here’s a note on the punctuation of the holiday for those interested.)

Today’s tip is a simple one: When you travel with a tour group, make an effort to get to know the other participants. Not only will it make the trip more fun, but it also may pay you dividends later on. Many of these other travelers will have researched the destination(s) or otherwise learned of a cool place, restaurant or thing to do that they can share with you. They may even give you an idea for your next trip!

    Prior to cruising we always join the CruiseCritic.com “Roll Call” board for our cruise, and we share info on fun things to do in the various ports. I have shared info on cooking classes and other fun things we were going to book (spear fishing in St. Thomas, dinner on the beach and riding Trikes in Aruba, jet-ski fishing in Grand Cayman, etc.), and on one cruise we were able to join a GREAT private tour to a remote village in Panama by dugout canoe through another cruiser on the board!

    a great idea but for anyone who has traveled solo (and likes it) you may be the ONLLY independent traveler on a tour. Often it is filled with the 2 by 2’s, travelers who NEVER go without the other….. it can be difficult to break into this type of group.

    When in Lisbon, don’t miss the Gulbenkian Museum, especially the Art Deco/Art Nouveau jewelry and art. And, take time to ride the street car to the top of the hill fort and to enjoy the view and the gardens. Last, take the train from the main station to Sintra. Ride the bus the short haul to the castle. Tour the castle and end your visit with the classic custard tart and coffee on the castle roof.
