group travel

If you’ve got only a short time to explore a city, walking everywhere seems like a bad idea. Not only will you not have the time to visit all the places you want to see, you will also get quite tired.

An argument about what is better to see, when and where to stop for lunch is bound to ensue. There’s a better way to go about this. You can hire a panoramic bus like one of these .

Your party can enjoy all the benefits of visiting a big city with a customized executive bus. Unlike the organized tours, these buses give you the opportunity to pick your company as well as many other amenities.

You get to see a lot

Being motorized in a big city is practically essential if you want to get anywhere. American cities are miles and miles across and tourist sites can be spread out. So, in order to be able to cover all of them in a short amount of time, you will need a vehicle. If you’re alone, you can just rent a car. However, if your group is bigger, you will need something more appropriate.

Executive buses with panoramic roofs offer you the opportunity to really appreciate the city you’re going through even during the drive. You can see all around you as well as above you. And if you ever want to stop anywhere, all you need to do is say so.

It is safer than public transport

Another big advantage of a rented bus is the safety. Nobody can get on if you don’t let them. Big cities tend to have a decent network of public transport, be it the subway or buses. However, even though it may be a convenient way to get from one part of the city to another, it is still not exactly safe. Particularly if you are a visitor to the city and don’t know your way around very well.

Not to mention that public transport tends to be unclean and poorly maintained.

You choose the timetable

With your own transport, you can choose your own tempo. Do you want to spend hours in one spot, or is 10 minutes quite enough? You call the shots, there are no tour guides with their itineraries and strict timetables. You can choose to skip some sights altogether or add some of your own which are not a part of any organized sightseeing tour.

You can even visit nearby places

If you choose, you can even visit places which are not in the city but are close enough to drive to. Beautiful nature preserves or famous sites can be found all throughout the USA just outside major cities.

If you went on a tour with a tourist organization, you most likely wouldn’t have the time to visit both the city proper and its surroundings due to the concept of a guided tour. However, if you choose your own adventure, you can make it work.

You get a driver, so you can relax

When you rent a vehicle with more than 10 seats you must get a professional chauffeur with a commercial drivers’ license. What that means for you is that you can relax to the fullest and let the person who lives in the city and drives through it for a living take care of how to get you to the places you want to see. You can indulge in everything you normally do on vacation, even drink alcohol if you want.
