When you think of travelling with a tour, you might picture a large group of rowdy young people or a sense of sticking to a routine. But some destinations require the expertise of a local, someone who knows the ins and outs of a particular city, and not just the typical tourist traps.
Some of the most popular tourist destinations across the world offer an abundance of tours, but below, TourRadar, a site that allows you to book guides or tours, has helped us narrow down some of the least crowded destinations still worth a trip.
Of course, if you're the type of person who doesn't like an agenda or having restrictions, you can always book a guide for smaller parts of your trip. We suggest looking into them if you are checking out any type of ancient architecture or religious monuments.
