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.

Highlights
  • Gloriously laid-back with effortlessly chic cottages, Petit St Vincent is understated yet exceptionally refined.
  • It's the kind of place where the attentive but low-key service ensures you'll want for nothing yet feel totally at home.
  • A small private island with guests who return year after year, Petit St Vincent is the ultimate Caribbean escape. Beautiful cottages equipped with luxurious facilities nestle in secluded locations on hillsides, cliffs and beachfronts.
  • Lovely coves with golden sand beaches alternate with rocky headlands and forest.
  • Everything here is done in a luxurious but very tasteful, restrained fashion.
  • Service is impeccable with staff roaming the island and a discreet flag system to let them know if you require their services or wish to be left alone.
  • There are no phones, TVs or internet except in the main lodge so you switch off entirely and enjoy the sea breeze and panoramic views.
  • Alternatively you can join a yoga class or test the fitness trail, go snorkeling off the beach or try diving, sailing or kayaking.
  • The food here is sublime with ingredients from the organic garden and two restaurants to choose from, although many guests choose to dine in their beautiful cottages.
  • There are 22 open-plan cottages scattered around the island, each out of sight of the next.
  • Built from native stone and wood with floor-to-ceiling sliding windows, soft color schemes and contemporary decor, they offer complete peace and tranquility.

I just completed the 7 Days Machame trek with Lappet Faced Safaris and it was absolutely amazing. They went above and beyond to take care of me and everyone in our group. Despite the grueling nature of the hike, I felt completely spoiled by the delicious food, spacious tents, private toilet, and so many more luxuries. They completely surprised me with a two layer decorated cake complete with birthday candles for my 54 birthday one night. I’ll remember the kindness, generosity, strength, and work ethic of our guides, chef, waiter and porters. Our guide Raymond was patient, friendly, funny, and very knowledgeable - request him on your trip!! Our chef Fredy made the most delicious meals I’ve ever had - all in a tent with equipment and food he carried up the mountain. Raymond, and his team of porters, including the inspiring Fredy, were so friendly and hardworking. Joshua the waiter helped me find a bathroom in an emergency, he made sure our whole group always had whatever we wanted in terms of food and drink, he was fantastic! The whole Lappet Faced Safaris team was inspiring, easy to work with, and went above and beyond to truly make my trip a once in a lifetime event. I highly recommend this company.

I went with my wife on a Kilimanjaro trip organized by Taste of Kilimanjaro Adventures. It was my first trip to Tanzania before then, I can only recommend this tour operator, we had a custom trip for a party of four.

Very good guides, good equipment, good food and a great & squeaky-clean toilet every day, which is a great thing to have.

I have been on many safari trips before, but I would only book with Taste of Kilimanjaro Adventures now.

We were a group of 7 from ages 16- 51 all of us reached the Summit! 100% success rate. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, the whole 7-day journey was amazing the guides were very friendly and dedicated to our goal of reaching the Summit. They were flexible since our group had climbers from different skill levels. The main guide adjusted the itinerary to make it more comfortable for us. The equipment was perfect for our trip and the weather was incredible we only encountered one small shower one afternoon. Our trip will be in our memories forever. Kudos to our operator without them we could not have these memories
