Anyone gone traveling with Free & Easy?

Hi

Looking to go away for 20 days on a trip (with a guide) with the company https://www.freeandeasytraveler.com ...

Has anyone heard or gone with them? Good? Bad? Ugly? trying to avoid Contiki tour

..

You can easily arrange a trip by yourself for much less than what they charge, I fail to see how they are helpful.

Oh come on, the whole point of group tours is that you don't need to arrange anything yourself. You don't need to worry about transportation, where to stay, where to eat usually (since they'll at minimum recommend places). You don't need to figure out border crossings, worry about getting scammed on any tours you do within a country. If you're not as comfortable socially, you'll always have people to eat, drink and do activities with, take photos for you, etc.

I hate group travel, especially organized group travel like this, but "fail[ing] to see how they are helpful" is the height of idiocy.

For the OP, I've heard good things about Free & Easy. Understand that they won't be that different from Contiki. You'll end up with a high % (maybe even 100%) of Canadians (whereas Contiki tends to attract a little more international crowd and certainly more Aussies), but the experience has a high chance of being the same you'd get with Contiki.
