3 Ways to explore on your next City Break
Travel is a fantastic opportunity to explore the world and open up your life to different cultures. It can be one of the most rewarding experiences. If you want to make the most of your time away it’s worth thinking about how best to explore your chosen destination. Hiring a car can be restrictive when travelling – especially in cities so what are the alternatives? Let’s explore..
Ride an Open Top Bus
If you’re visiting a city, then chances are you’ll have your choice of bus companies desperate to show you around. City Sightseeing is one of the world’s leading open top bus tour operators, providing tours in a wide variety of cities all over the world. Beginning in Seville, Spain, in 1999, the company now offers tours in more than 100 city locations. City Sightseeing tour buses allow you to hop on and off whenever you want, meaning that if you use them to get around your holiday destination, you’ll also get to learn about the city as you go. A relaxing way to get to know a new place without having to deal with the trauma of blisters and aching feet!
Explore On Foot
Of course, on the other hand if you really want to get to know a place then there’s no better way than getting up close and exploring on foot. Walking around really allows you to indulge in the sights, sounds, and smells of your location. What could be better than walking along a pomade, following your nose to the fresh bread of a local bakery? This can be more of a challenge if you’re travelling with children, but there are some great initiatives like balance bikes from companies like Yvolution offering the perfect solution. Not only is it a fun way for them to experience the sites, but it will mean that you can pack more in as a family.
See the sights by Boat
Most cities offer boat cruises as a way of seeing the sights from a new perspective. If you’re visiting London then consider taking a river tour along the Thames. Not only will you gain insight into the history of the city, but many tours offer services such as afternoon tea, lunches or even themed events. So kick back, pour the tea and check out the Houses of Parliament without so much as breaking a sweat!
