I like to see all I can when on vacation. I try to research thoroughly all the forums/boards and take into account the experiences of the "experts" as well as other travelers. However, I like to do it on a budget and try, whenever possible, to take the local public transportation system with the locals. Even when cruising, I tend to book my own excursions and have saved over 100% on some activities!
