Trip Type Trip Type 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.
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.
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.
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 / Independent 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.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
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.

In May, 2021 I booked Amtrak Vacation tour from Seattle, WA to East Glacier & back for myself and my 13 year old grandson. Booking the trip was the only easy thing to occur. The trip was to leave Seattle at 4:40 pm and arrive in East Glacier at 9:40 am the next day. Dinner & breakfast were included since we had a sleeper compartment. The meals were horrible! They were microwave meals that were tasteless! The best food was the breakfast muffin, which they were out of on the return trip. We were also told there would be an observation car. Unfortunately we did not have it when we boarded and could not enjoy the views at all! We were told onboard that we would not pick up the observation car until Spokane, which for us was the middle of the night! When I booked the trip we were also told the shuttle would enable us to visit Glacier, take a boat cruise on Two Medicine Lake, etc. A car was not needed.
Unfortunately less than two weeks prior to the trip, I received an email that the shuttle was not running and the boat tour was canceled. I immediately tried calling, but they were closed for the weekend. On Monday morning I was on hold for 1 hour 45 minutes and finally hung up. In the afternoon I tried again; I was on hold for 2 hours and when I explained my needs, she said I had to talk to customer relations and proceeded to put me on another hold. When I finally got connected, I immediately asked for their direct number in case we were disconnected and - big surprise - there is no direct line! This is the poorest customer relations in the world! I should have guessed at that point that the company really does not care once they have your money. They were absolutely no help at all. They could not help me rent a car, offer solutions of how to get around, etc. I asked what were we going to do at the lodge, the agent said they do have a pool. When we arrived the pool was not open! The Amtrak representative just apologized, she could not connect me to a supervisor. When I suggested the supervisor could call me back within 24 hours, she took my name & number, but you guessed it - no one called. Customer Service is nonexistent. It was only when I called the Glacier Park Lodge that I learned they had known the shuttle was not running since at least April. Amtrak Vacations lied to me and sold the trip under false pretenses and made no attempt to help me. The Lodge was also able to give me the local name of the car rental and I was finally able to secure a car. To add insult to injury, Amtrak gave me a $100 voucher to use on a future trip with them. I will never go on another Amtrak Vacation! Frank Marini is the CEO of both Yankee Leisure Group (travel company) and Amtrak Vacations. He has worked in the travel industry for many years including Collette Vacations. He is familiar with travel companies and knows they offer great customer relations; and many offer refunds when things go wrong - why is so adamant about the "no refund" policy? I would question any company affiliated with him. Beware and do not book with Amtrak Vacations.

I booked a trip with EF Ultimate Break in October for a trip leaving in May. Of course, that trip was rightfully cancelled because of COVID19. What isn’t right is that this company refuses to give refunds for the trip they themselves cancelled. Our options are an expiring trip voucher or to take a refund minus a thousand dollars. I even paid for their insurance and they’re refusing to give a full refund. They’re taking advantage of a pandemic to steal money from young travelers who trusted them with thousands of dollars. They don’t care about their customers and they are not to be trusted with anyone’s money.

Recently completed Intrepid’s Essential Japan tour for 18-29 year olds. Absolutely loved it. Had an amazing and knowledgeable guide, who always went above and beyond to make sure guests were having a great time. Intrepid believe in supporting local businesses, staying in local hostels as well as eating at small, local restaurants. It was great exploring Japan as a local and knowing that Intrepid believes in supporting the small guys as well as sustainable travel. Would definitely book my next tour with them again!

We just wrapped up a Tanzania family safari. It was an incredible experience!

Even the cook made sure my picky teenager would like his breakfast by fixing him his scrambled eggs the way he likes them.

I’ve been dreaming of this trip with my son for a long time and I’m glad I booked it with you guys! We’ll cherish the memories we made for ever

If you’re looking for a real adventure kinda trip then go with Intrepid!

Thank you Thank you Thank you

In July 2018 I booked a trip for 2 to GNP in July 2019. My husband and I are both older with some mobility issues, so I made sure to book a bedroom. I paid in full in January. 2.5 weeks before we were to depart, Amtrak notified my agent that they didn't have a bedroom and would give us two roomettes (room too small, bunks too small, no toilet for old people who need to pee a million times at night). My agent tried for a week to get them to give me a bedroom, but they kept saying "the trains were rearranged and we don't have a bedroom. But we'll keep trying to get one for them." Needless to say, we cancelled the trip (had to cancel or lose money on hotels) and figure out something else to do with our airline tickets. NEVER NEVER EVER WILL I USE AMTRAK; AND I WILL WARN ALL MY FRIENDS, RELATIVES, AND ACQUAINTANCES TO AVOID IT AS WELL. STAY AWAY!!!!!!

This is an excellent jam packed tour of Costa Rica & Panama. The stops are excellent, particularly Corcovado and san Gerardo de Dota. Andres is a brilliant guide and you would be extremely lucky to have him as your group leader.
