When you travel with a tourist group, you don’t need to book plane and train tickets, and you don't have to care about where to live and what to eat either, because the travel agency will arrange everything for you. All you need to do is to follow the tour guides. They will take you to all the places of interest. They will tell you stories about the interesting places and help you to learn local culture. This is called a package tour.

If you want to have a better understanding of a place, you can have a slow travel. When you have a slow travel, you had better spend at least one week living in one place, stay with a local family and visit interesting sites near your living instead of rushing around for a long day to see the must-sees. In this way, you can make more local friends, taste local food, and know the local traditions and customs deeper. Only so can you become more knowledgeable and widen your experience.
It depends on your need to choose the way you want to travel.
