I travel alone myself, and I would also never go near any sort of guided tour, I think you would find solo travelers if you are at a hostel. And I am definitely BROKE, but I still manage a way to get by and save. Granted I don't have any responsiblities besides myself, 3-5 years from now I might not have these same words

Sometimes, you don't have a choice. Due to the inherent danger and remoteness of certain places, like wildlife safaris, you simply can't go without a guide who knows what he/she is doing. In fact, certain countries require it.

Oh I know that, but I was just saying from my own experiences, I wasn't saying there is anything wrong with going on a guided tour, but my travels consist more of spending time and looking around a city than going with a set purpose for a specific event.
