Caravans

For those of you who have gone on a WBCCI-sponsored caravan, could you provide some opinions of your experiences? Is it worth the money? What kinds of problems and positive experiences did you have? I am considering signing up for one and would like to find out if it's worth the large amount of money involved.

Never been. May not ever attend one. We do not think the cost is excessive. We do question if all of the events on the caravan will be of interest? Also, the caravans are much longer than we believe is appropriate for our traveling preference.

Having someone else plan your trip represents a considerable convenience. The value should not be underestimated. Folks tell us they develop life long friendships on caravans. Commitment to a trip gets you out and traveling, which has got to be a good thing.

Suggestion - attend a set of local unit rally events. Ask the folks you meet about their experiences with caravans. Look for one of the shorter caravans that some of the units are holding and see if you like the format.

Good luck with your investigation. Pat

We'll be following this thread because we're wondering the same thing. One concern we had is we've stayed away from organized vacation tours because of a couple of bad experiences. I'm a little wary of caravans because of that. We definitely don't like the "hit and run" tourist type on the tours we experienced. You know the kind, bus/cruise pulls up to a spot, people jump out, take a picture, buy a trinket or three, jump back on bus/cruise, never having experienced the locale or people - not for us. We consider ourselves what I like to call "travelers", not tourists, more immersion travel than looking at fish in a bowl type of experience. But AS people in general seem to be a great group, hoping it wouldn't be like a typical organized tour. Anyone with experience?
