Travelling wiht a tour or going solo

Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Travelling wiht a tour or going solo

So I have only just returned from an amazing 2 weeks in Cambodia and Vietnam and my feet are itching for a much longer time away.

I am now looking into a 3 month adventure in Australia/NZ and probably Fiji

My question is whether you would recommend travelling as part of a tour ( I have found several that look great) or whether I should go it alone?

My amazing travels in Cambodia with a tour group were incredible however I know doing it alone, it would have cost me half the price. Whether I would have experienced all that I saw is another matter.

I am a single female traveller btw.

Thanks for your replies

I'd say there is definitely no need to do a fully organised tour in any of the 3 countries you mention, but you could do a hop-on hop off bus such as Oz experience or Stray Bus in NZ. They are sociable and give you the chance to meet other travellers while getting you from A to B, but with the flexibility that a tour doesn't give you. You can choose to stay in each place for as little or as long as you like. In Fiji I used Awesome Adventures which were really good; I've also heard good reports about Feejee Experience.

I travelled alone in all those places and loved it - have fun!
