Is sentence "Anyway, there are definitely some bus tours that worth it, for example..." fully correct in terms of grammar? My friend wrote it in some letter for english exam and he quite confidently insists that there should be no second "are" in this structure whereas I just don't get why in the world would you cut out "to be" before an adjective. This led to a sudden small civil war between us... Would be really grateful if you could somehow enlighten me and bring peaceful times back to our streets).

    Your friend is wrong - it should be that are worth it. – Kate Bunting Apr 18 at 15:24
  • You might hear people say: There are bus tours worth it, signifying bus tours that are worth it. But, as Kate says, once you include that, you have to follow with the verb (are). – Ronald Sole Apr 18 at 15:42

    I’m voting to close this question because it's about a "typo" - either that shouldn't be there at all, or (more likely) it should be followed by *are – FumbleFingers Apr 18 at 16:11
