Although I am an experienced traveler, there are times when I prefer group travel. There are people, particularly other experienced travelers, who throw shade at me about group travel acting as if I am making a mistake or wasting my money.
In my experience, there is a stigma about group travel experiences in the travel community. People act as if group trips are not as immersive or will hold you back from truly experiencing a destination. While I could probably plan any of the group trips I’ve done on my own, there are occasions when a group experience is far more immersive and accessible than doing it by yourself. The Middle East is one of those regions.
Read why a group trip in Jordan & Egypt was the right decision for me on my recent collaborative post with Intrepid Travel.
