I know, I know. I promote DIY tours and even share my itineraries around to help you plan your own like it’s my business. So you’re probably like, “Do you even go on packaged tours?!!!” As a matter of fact, yes. Yes, I do. I usually go to two packaged tours per year. My Bohol, Ilocos and Baler trips were package tours and both were a blast!
There’s definitely a lot of things I consider before I decide to sign up for a tour. Like, a loooooot. But, summary is: If it’s local travel, I will most likely book a packaged tour. If it’s international, I will most likely DIY it.
