What is a Day Trip or Excursion?

A day trip or excursion is an activity that typically lasts 8 hours or longer. Some good examples of day trips are city tours, snorkeling trips, or fishing charters. You will find that most major tour operators will offer day trips because they can package different activities all in one day and offer it at a discounted price. Not to mention, large tour operators have the transportation for it. The guests are then saving money on visiting all these attractions one by one. Also, some trips take a few hours of traveling so only motorcoaches or large buses can accommodate this.

Are day trips expensive?
Day trips may be expensive, but they offer an adventure that is beyond the city limits. Expect to pay around $80-100 for a day trip, however this number can vary greatly depending on the location and type of day trip.

What are some good day trips for kids?
Snorkeling, fishing, theme parks and the beach are good for the kids.

Are these trips guided?
Sometimes they are guided, but you have to check with the tour operator first. The guided tours are great if you are not familiar with the area.
