My 18 yr.old daughter and I are starting to plan a trip to the Emerald Island May 23rd. I talked to a travel agent and she highly recommends CEI tours. She says it's the only way to go for your !st time. It just seems so costly but it does include 2 meals a day, lodging in good hotels and possibly a few nights in B&B's, admission to everything they take you to and a few nights with entertainment. Is a tour my best option or should I try to plan this myself. Also, if we did it on our own would it be safe for my daughter and I to be out in the evening?
