A walking tour is what it is called. “Traditional” Walking tours are mostly by bus or other means of transport. In this way, you:
- drive past the sights and take photos;
- listen to the guide;
- get to the place, get out of your transport and do the same.
By doing so, you skip everything else in the city or area you place.
That is, you see only the most famous and popular places. What to do with other interesting, but not very popular or famous sights? Should you just forget about them? Well, the choice is yours.
