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.

We went to Portugal to celebrate our 20th Anniversary and some friends recommended us Pablo and Nina´s services. We were so surprised that they perfectly understood what we were looking for since the very beggining, a little bit of cultural activities, relaxation and enjoying some fine wines. The best part was the Douro River Cruise, that day was fantastic! Thank you so much for making it possible

We liked the cherry and berry fruits coming through with gentle tannins. The spanish wines we had were extremely well balanced, excellent pairing with the steak we had in Aranda de Duero. The restaurants and hotel in Madrid were stunning, and Nina´s shopping recommendations in Barrio Salamanca made a difference. We will travel with Bravo Luxury Travel again

We always travel to Europe once a year before Christmas and this was probably one of the best family trips we had. From shopping to restaurant reservations everything was perfect. Nina and Giulia pay so much attention to every detail and everything was so smooth. Our favorite restaurants were Disfrutar in Barcelona and Akelarre and Amelia in San Sebastian. The shopping at Ramblas and Corte Ingles was so enjoyable

Absolutely amazing experience in Barcelona and Basque Country. That’s not just food - that’s great experience moving you deeply into culture of the region. Our favorite was Azurmendi, the 3 stars where we started with some picnic like experience, then some appetizers on kitchen, garden and after you will come to main table experience. Overall over 20 different small dishes including all the appetizers. Everything really unique and tasty worth every cent you pay for it. Really great places and highly recommended. We enjoyed our hotel in San Sebastian, the Maria Cristina Hotel.

This was our fourth time in Spain so we were looking for something a little different. We are huge wine lovers so it was a must to do a wine trip through the best wine regions. We loved all the small wineries that the Bravo team planned for us with amazing wines for a good price. We also thoroughly enjoyed the private tasting of Port wines in Porto and the river cruise down the Douro Valley. It made us feel like rockstars.
