An amusing and thought-provoking book offering advice and insights into the pleasures and perils of group tours, alongside a detailed travelogue of the author's journey to the northern capitals and Russia.
The first half of the book offers comprehensive guidance about forward planning, including how to choose the best tour for you, and the best way to stay fit and well to survive the trials and tribulations of travel on all forms of transport, interspersed with a fascinating dip into the history of group travel. The second half details the author's recent tour of Bangkok, Berlin, Denmark, Sweden, Finland and Russia, with sound advice about the sights to see and how to make the most of the experience.
