I plan to do Umrah very soon and have made the intention to do so.
I have a few questions that I was hoping ahlul ummah forum could help me.

First and foremost...
Would it be better to go as part of a group/tour or plan the trip myself (i.e. book flights, hotels separately etc)

What are the pros and cons of both options?

Btw i'll be going with four friends.
