Fully Independent Tours (FIT)
If you’ve travelled solo before, love to discover new things on your own and/or feel comfortable driving or using public transit at your desired destination, then a Fully Independent Tour (FIT) may be the perfect travel style for you.
A Fully Independent Tour is also ideal if you're travelling with family or friends when you don’t want to be tied to a set daily itinerary or to hang around with a bunch of other people you’ve never met before.
Also referred to as Fully Independent Travel, you travel independently for all or most of your trip. However, it does not necessarily mean your trip is not planned or that you travel without an itinerary.
You'll likely have an idea of sites you want to visit, activities you'd like to pursue and possibly specific places you'd like to stay, but you could be open to suggestions and recommendations for your itinerary by your travel planner.
Your flights, transportation and accommodations will be booked in advance, so you'll travel safe in the knowledge that you have somewhere to lay your head at night, but where you go and what you do between and at your destination(s) is completely up to you.
That said, an FIT may include a variety of guided activities, tours or excursions (such as Paris bus tour, African game safaris, museum tours, Golden Circle Tour) which can be pre-arranged to ensure availability. However, unless you book a private tour, the group dynamic will be different each time.
