If you decide to take a tour, here are some things to look for in a good tour company:
Reputation – Look on travel message boards to see what a company’s reputation is
Cost – With tour companies, it’s not always true that you get what you pay for.
Guides – Make sure the company uses knowledgeable, local guides
Market – Research the company’s target market. Again, travel boards can help here
Safety – Make sure the company follows all the proper safety requirements and is accredited by the local government,
