Sightseeing tours aren’t limited to your basic tour bus. Our travel writers bring you sightseeing adventures via bush plane, speedboat, hydrofoil, double-decker bus, and hot-air balloons, not to mention your own two feet. Plus, don’t forget that even a bus tour can open new worlds to you with the right guide and the right companions. BucketTripper hint: a two or three hour overview tour is a great way to get your bearings in a new-to-you city.

- Walking tours tend to be good value, and often reflect the quirky interests of the leader.
