    I have a doubt regarding the following sentences

    Hi,everybody!

    I have a doubt regarding the following sentences:

    I like to accompany tourists where they want to go.

    I like to accompany tourists to where they want to go.

    Would you be so kind to tell me which one is right and why.

    Thanks in advanced.

    Re: I have a doubt regarding the following sentences

    I am not a teacher.

    I like to accompany tourists
    to where they want to go.

    I guess, it is the right one.

    The word 'to' is a preposition and it links tourists and 'where they want to go'. A preposition links a noun or a pronoun with other parts of the sentence.

    I like to accompany tourists where they want to go.

    In this sentence, the phrase 'where they want to go' behaves like adjective phrase but it doesn't make sense to me.

    You say you accompany someone to a place. The place is "where they want to go".

    Re: I have a doubt regarding the following sentences

    'Where' means 'in or to which place' according to http://www.ldoceonline.com/dictionary/where
    So I think it might be possible to omit the preposition.

    Your question has been answered. Here's a tip about the question: you have a question, not a "doubt", regarding those sentences.

    Please note that a better title would have been 'I like to accompany tourists to where they want to go'.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:
