Hotels, Airbnb, and hospitality/hospitality exchanges; airfare, air travel, airports (including security/immigration), and frequent flyer programs; buses, trains, subways, and car rentals; travel adaptation/psychology/burnout; tours/sightseeing; cruise, resorts, festivals, and amusement parks; food/restaurants and travel;  money/economics: and how and when to get visas.

One of my biggest surprised while traveling around the world in the 20102 is how fond I became of guided and escorted multi-day tours. I feel blessed to have many guides who brought the history and culture of places to life while taking excellent care of their guest’s needs. However, it is not always easy to find the best guided tours for you. After taking 60 multi-day tours worldwide, I put together this list to help other Fifty Plus Nomads find the perfect tour for them.

By far the biggest issue I had while traveling around the world as a younger man was culture shock. It even resulted in me making some major decisions, most of which I regret in retrospect. In my experience, many people suffer from culture shock while traveling around the world or living abroad but most don’t even know they are suffering from culture shock.
