Try to sell of your 18-70 kit lens and get the 18-200VR, I'll do it immediately if i were you! You won't want to change lens when you're on the go right? Especially if the tour is a guided tour and not those OTOT ones.

hey hey what's wrong with the present set up!?
the kit lens has a decent range.
& the 50 is a fast short tele!

what can you miss with your present configuration?
a speedlight maybe?

The 18-200mm lens will overlap your 18-70mm. It totally replaces the range already, why would you want to still use your kit lens after getting a 18-200mm? 2nd body? Sentimental value?
