Free Tours seem to be the new fashion among travelers. Since 2016, its hiring has increased by 4000%, according to data from Civitatis, the leading platform for guided tours, excursions and activities in Spanish worldwide. He also informed that in 2019 there was an average score of 9.42 based on more than 200,000 opinions, which indicates that the quality standards of this type of excursions are increasingly high.
Free tours are a way to take guided tours of the main points of the city without paying a flat rate. The value of the tour is established by the consumer based on the quality of the tour and the willingness of the tour guide. Each one determines what value the experience had, and if one is not satisfied with it it is not mandatory to end it. This allows tourists to have freedom with the times and not be tied to an itinerary as in a conventional paid tour.
This type of guided tour is the option for young travelers eager for experiences of cultural interest. Used to make extensive trips, this type of free tours allow you to adapt to your economic conditions and in turn, provide you with a broad knowledge of each city visited. Being a fashion installed worldwide, almost all destinations have this modality. It is certainly a trend that will continue to grow over the years, ”explains Alberto Gutiérrez, founder and CEO of Civitatis.
