Guided tours are always very popular, and for good reason. They provide the perfect way to get to know an area or city or other location such as a stately home or park. You can learn far more about them than you would if you explored on your own, and this means you will remember the trip in an altogether different way.
The good news is wherever you go you will usually find some good guided tour opportunities to enjoy. They are typically well-priced and very safe too, although as with anything in life there is the potential for things to occasionally go wrong.
How likely is it you might have an accident on a guided tour?
This type of occurrence is very rare. There are however possibilities that might lead to a mishap. For example if you book a spot on a guided tour that involves a tour bus or similar vehicle, you would expect to be safe throughout the experience. However, there could be the potential for injuries to occur if the vehicle you are on is involved in an accident. This might lead to several people suffering anything from mild injuries to ones that are significantly worse.
Walking tours can also have potential hazards involved. You could trip over a loose paving stone or be knocked over by a cyclist if the group comes into contact with someone riding on the pavement. There could potentially be all manner of different ways an accident on a guided tour could happen.
Was it your fault?
Everyone has a mishap now and then that they blame themselves for. However, if you wish to try and claim compensation for your injuries, you have to be able to provide proof that someone else was negligent. This might be difficult to do, especially with no experience of such occurrences.
