Style Style Small Group Tour Small groups are usually defined as between 10 and 24 travelers, often less. If you're the kind of person who enjoys more intimate experiences and personal service this is a good choice. All else being equal you will pay a premium for this style vs a larger group tour.
Private Guided Private tours give you the undivided attention of a guide, and often involve special access to sites and unique experiences not available to larger groups. This is a great option for families, couples, and small friend groups. Expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.
Self Guided Tour A travel company plans your itinerary and arranges all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. You have the flexibility of a solo trip while still getting the convience and time savings of expert planning. Get 90% of the benefits of a tour, without a guide.
Group Tour Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.
River Cruise These vessels are smaller than most ocean cruisers, limiting which amenties are available. Passenger counts can vary. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports and local villages.
Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500. The primary purpose of these trips is to spend time off the vessel in local ports (e.g. Mediterranean) or experiencing nature (e.g Galapagos or Antarctica). Cabins can vary from budget to luxury.
Large Ship Cruise This is the "floating city" experience, with multiple ways to enjoy your vacation aboard the ship as much as on land. Ships are multiple floors, provide several activities, culinary, and shopping options. They often make fewer stops and have less time available for shore excursions.
Retreats Similar to a self guided tour but staying in one location only with activities and day outings included as a part of the stay.

Great Value Vacations refused to issue a refund or future credit on the tour I had to cancel because of COVID-19. My total loss was $1,605.00, including airline extras. They offered me a future travel credit of $492.00, to be used only for this particular tour AND IT HAD TO BE BOOKED WITHIN FOUR (4) DAYS after the cancellation date AND the price may go up! During the two year period of COVID 19 I have canceled travel plans with Delta, Celebrity Cruises, Holland America Cruises and Trafalgar Tours. Each company has given me a 100% refund or future credit with no restrictions on itinerary. Great Value Vacations is at best unethical or far worse. DO NOT book individual or group travel with this organization.

I bought a trip package from Great Value Vacations via Groupon (9-day trip to Greece, departing from JFK). Great Value cancelled the trip, citing the pandemic as the reason for cancellation. Groupon advised that GVV could readily refund the money based on GVV's cancellation of the trip.

GVV repeatedly refused to refund, claiming that they "didn't cancel the trip, just postponed it" and stating that I had a travel credit to use between APRIL AND DECEMBER 2020 (as if they control the pandemic's end date, my work and travel schedule...)

After horrendous customer service experiences with GVV in an effort to simply get my money back and to resolve the issue, I was forced to file a small claims lawsuit.

In summary:

GVV is truly disreputable. I do not recommend using this company for any reason no matter how tempting their "deals" may be. The customer service is impersonal, scripted, and unaccommodating to its customers. A horribly run business.

I have to believe the 5 star reviews were posted by their own staff.

We spent $11, 630.20 for a 12 day trip to Europe, from 6/11/2020 to 6/23/2020. THEY cancelled our trip, and refuse to refund our money, even after we purchased the travel insurance, which they lied about what that covered, as well. I think we should all file a class action law suit.
