|would you please someone correct my toefl essay ?
There are two kinds of opinions concerning the plan to travel. Some people hold the opinion that traveling in group is much beneficial for them, while others who like adventure and hate having a supervisor who makes decision for them about what they should do, believe that going on trip without any plan and tour guide is interesting and has its own enjoyment. Taking consideration of my current situation, not traveling a lot; I strongly recommend that people should travel with tour.
The main reason for my propensity to travel with tour guide is that we may not be familiar with language of that area which we plan to travel. Last year, my wife and I went to India. We were in a group led by tour guide. Before traveling I thought English language was widespread all around the world even in India. So, in my opinion I could be able to talk with Indian people by speaking English. Unfortunately, I was wrong because little people could speak English. Therefore, my tour guide was very helpful. He helped us communicate with Indian people.
Another reason why I prefer to go with tour guide is that they know which hotel has more facilities and amenities. For example, when we go to another country of course, we do not know which place would be better for us to relax. We do not know much about that area and its accommodations. However, if you travel with a tour, after a long journey the place that you want to get rid of tiredness is reserved. You do not need to seek a good place with reasonable cost. The only work that you should do is to take a shower and get sleep for short time.
The third advantage of traveling with tour is that they are familiar with country or city which we are going to. As I said before, my wife and I went to India. Our tour guides showed us the Government palace. We learned about the history of Indian independence. In addition, they took us to the national museums and historical places. They knew almost everything about India, Delhi, Kashmir, and other cities. So, that was very enjoyable and memorable for us.
In conclusion, taking account of all reasons which I mentioned above, I strongly recommend people to join tour guide especially when they want to travel to a city that they are not familiar with. They will benefit by joining such group, and they will not worry about the places that they are visiting. All things will be arranged by tour guide.
