I have done both ways. I am more a loner. My husband and I enjoy doing our own thing. We know what we like and that's how we want to be. It's fun being with people but they can also get on your nerves and ruin your time. I want to do my thing at my own time and you can't do that with a big group. I would suggest go small. That way you can really take everything in. You will be able to experience more.
