On our first trip to an AI a few years ago we went. Maybe at a big hotel it is helpful to figure out where things are, but it just seems like the tour operators chance to push tours on you. Since then I just read up on our destination a little before we go and miss the meetings. They give you impression it's required, but it's not like we're going to forget what day were going home. On the last trip I thought the AVC rep overstepped his boundries by calling to wake us up (at 5 am on my Alberta body clock). Sorry sir but I'm not starting my vacation by setting an alarm clock, we can do that at home.
