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.

We used Gate 1 travel 6 times in the past and overall they were fairly good. Recently we had a somewhat unhappy experience with Gate 1. We reserved a trip to Mexico in May 2020. The airline was Aeromexico and it cancelled the flight in late April. Gate 1 cancelled the land trip at the end of March. Our initial deposit was through our VISA card which covered the airline cost and a small additional amount for the land tour. We made a mistake by paying the remaining balance by check due to the small additional discount. Aeromexico refused to reimburse us the ticket cost and only offered a voucher for future flight within 14 months. We informed Aeromexico that since they cancelled the flight they are required by law (department of transportation) to reimburse us the ticket cost. They told us that Gate 1 purchased the tickets for us so we have to get the ticket money from Gate 1. Gate 1 did something not very professional and possibly not legitimate. Gate 1 agreed to reimburse us the cost of the land trip. We thought it would pay back to our credit card company and deduct the airline cost from the initial deposit since Aeromexico wouldn't pay back the ticket cost. Instead Gate 1 fully reimbursed our entire initial deposit by credit card and then deducted the airline ticket cost from our remaining balance which we paid by check. By doing it this way we can no longer use our credit card company to settle the dispute with Gate 1. Gate 1 told us they will pay us back the ticket cost only if Aeromexico reimbursed them the ticket cost. Aeromexico then filed bankruptcy and we thought we have lost the ticket money. To our surprise Gate 1 sent us the ticket money last Tuesday and it took 18 months to get our money back. Our advice is not to pay the remaining balance by check. The saving is only 2% of the remaining balance since our credit card gives 3% discount for travel. We are confident that had we paid the entire amount by credit card then we would have got our ticket money back from Gate 1 much earlier.

In January 2020, we made a booking with Audley for a tailor-made holiday in October 2020 to Australia. The consultant, Lee, was most helpful and came up with many ideas and suggestions which made the planned trip very special. Then came Covid-19. Audley's excellent service continued as in spite of very difficult and trying circumstances for Audley, Lee and her colleagues kept us fully updated when they said they would. In August 2020, we were allowed to reschedule to October 2021 at no extra cost, which we did. In 2021 Audley contacted us when they said they would and finally in August we reluctantly decided to cancel the proposed trip, which was accepted without fuss. The deposit refund reached us when Audley said it would. As far as my wife and I are concerned once things settle down more, we shall be looking to travel again and will certainly get back to Audley for any tailor-made trip requirements. Audley's customer service impressed us greatly throughout and did not let us down.

We were due to travel to Cambodia in October 2020 following an amazing trip to Vietnam with Audley. Unfortunately due to Covid this did not happen and was postponed until October this year. Our trip was cancelled and we decided to take a full refund. This was made in full without any hassle or complications.
I cannot praise the team at Audley enough, both for their knowledge and expertise on our Vietnam trip, but also for their understanding and professional way in which they have dealt with the current situation regarding travel and Covid.

I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Audley and will most certainly be using them for future travel, whenever that is.

EF has been so amazing at getting our International Trip off the ground. I truly appreciate the STEM travel options and I am so excited to take our students to Europe. Durban Ripley has been absolutely incredible with helping with our promotional materials and support for our informational meeting. She truly helped us in every way to make this travel possibility a reality.

China 2020, then COVID of course. Then that money had a “Use by” date that slipped by me. It’s still my money but that’s not their attitude.
The worst is THEY DON’T CARE
