CITO Escorted Tours featuring this symbol include all of the above and are accompanied throughout by a Tour Escort (or in some cases, by a 2nd driver). Tour Escorts are not "guides" but are there to assist passengers, wherever needed, to ensure their comfort and safety throughout the tour. On some tours, a local Tour Guide will be hired to provide commentary on excursions and places of interest. This will be shown in the "Price Includes" panel.
