ALL RIGHT, THAT'S FAR ENOUGH

Synthravels.com┬áis a tour operator that offers free guided tours through the more famous virtual worlds. That’s right, you don’t really have to go anywhere; you’re already there.

Stop by the site and pick up a free travel guide to Second Life, World of Warcraft, EverQuest, Ultima Online, Final Fantasy and a dozen other interesting unreal places. Pick a destination and register for the trip. A few days later you will receive confirmation of your tour through the chosen world.

The catch is you have to have the program for that world installed on your PC in order to take the tour. So that might set you back $20 to $50. On the other hand, almost all these virtual worlds have trial versions, so you can load up for a limited time for free — long enough to take a tour, anyway. Second Life is free to join, and has 4.6 million members.
