A surprise tour
May 28, 2016 5:04pm CST
Some days ago I visited a website that belongs to a Danish travel agency. They sell different kinds of package tours. One of the tours was a surprise tour. There were no details about the tour. They only told the participants to bring their passports and some Euros. The destination is a secret. I don't know if I would book that kind of tour. I like surprises, but I have already visited many different parts of Europe, and I would get a little disappointed if I ended up in a place where I had been several times. What do you think? Do you like the idea of a surprise tour? Or do you prefer to pick your travel destination?

A few travel agencies are also offering these kind of tours here. I would need to be really bored to pay for a travel to an unknown place. This is not for me : I like to know the destination, and I read about the places where I travel before.

I also like to know the destination. I would accept a surprise tour if I received it as a gift, but I probably wouldn't buy that kind of tour. Many people have booked this tour (there are no tickets left), so it must appeal to some people.

@Porcospino I am not sure that I would take the risk to buy this kind of tour for a family member/friend. I would prefer to buy a travel that is to their tastes. But I am a bit changing my mind now, while reading the offers of a tour operator. Some might be interesting : a weekend "opera" in Europe, including two tickets to see an opera in a front row box, and the lodging by opera lovers ; a weekend "crime in the castle" in France where you are received and are dining with the owners of a castle. This one is cheap, 115 Euros, which is not a lot for a night in a castle, a diner and a visit of the castles around on Sunday.
