Darrel: What are you looking at?
Alice: Tours for our vacation. I was thinking that it’d be hard for us to get around on our own, so I think joining a tour is a good idea.[audio:http://libsyn.com/media/eslpod/ESLPod770.mp3|titles=ESL Podcast – Joining a Tour]
Darrel: Really? I thought we’d make our way around leisurely to see the sites. I don’t like the fast pace of tours. I’d rather have the time to take in each site, not rush through it just to say I’ve been there.
Alice: Tours come in all shapes and sizes. I’m sure we can find one that isn’t too fast-paced or strenuous for you.
Darrel: And I don’t want to eat all my meals with the tour group. I want some time to explore on our own.
Alice: All right, I’m looking at a tour that has the perfect itinerary. It’s also gotten rave reviews. It includes a tour guide, all admission fees, accommodations, ground transportation, and most of the meals. And there are several free mornings and afternoons built-in so we can explore on our own.
Darrel: I don’t know.
Alice: The alternative is for you to plan each stop of our trip.
Darrel: A tour is sounding better and better.
