Thoughts on mystery travel companies?

I’ve been on one trip so far and had a great experience.

It was of course more expensive than if I had booked it all myself, but in my opinion the convince of having flights, accom, itinerary and transport all sorted, plus the excitement of not knowing where I was going till the airport was well worth it.

Running the numbers, I paid £700 for 5 days, and I think I could have sorted the trip for £500 if I had done it myself, so in my opinion £200 is worth it.

I’ve just booked another trip with the same company and I’m every excited, especially as they give you cryptic clues as to where you’re going in the 2 weeks running up to it!

I’m curious what other travelers thoughts are on the matter?
