No! This is one of the benefits of travelling with a tour operator. You’ll be travelling with a tour guide who knows how to get around the countries you will be visiting. However, if you have some time, it never hurts to know a few courteous, friendly words (e.g., hello, please, thank you, etc.) of the native languages of the countries you will be visiting. It does make travelling more fun and you will find that most people from these countries will appreciate the effort and will be more receptive to your visit.
