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.

Israel was our sixth and probably one of our best Smartours experiences. Our guide, Dan Ofri, who we hope will be our forever friend, managed to infuse history, spirituality, knowledge, kindness, joy and laughter into our lives on an hourly basis throughout the tour. We felt safely at home in this miraculous country that we’ve grown to love as our own thanks to Dan and the experience that he provided. We also had the pleasure of enjoying 2 weeks with a wonderful group of like minded people which always makes the trip so much better. Many thanks to The Smartours Team and to Dan Ofri for making this trip so unique and very special!

This’s was our first major tour since we generally like to “do our own thing”. Very glad we did it. Tour was extremely well organized, got to meet some great people that we hope remain friends, and learned much more than we would have on our own. Selection of sites covered most major attractions as advertised. Accommodations were fine, including Dan Panorama Hotels in Jerusalem and Eilat and Lavin kibbutz. Dan Olfri, our tour guide was super knowledgeable, personable and helpful. He always went the extra mile to be sure we were comfortable, safe and well informed. He even tolerated our general lack of ability to remember the large amount of information he presented. Tour price was reasonable compared to many others we explored but without any apparent drop off in quality or service. Provided meals were very good and Dan’s recommendations for restaurants were helpful. We would recommend SmarTours to others and will probably use them for other destinations as we go through our travel bucket list.

The trip to Israel was very educational. Our tour guide, Jacov Kuchuk, was excellent! I was extremely disappointed that SmarTours would not upgrade our plane tickets to Comort+.

Our guide, Alan Gill, was outstanding. He knew everything about Israel and took us everywhere with skill and enthusiasm. He gave us all the inside information to experience Israel as a native and not a tourist. We had a great bus driver for all our needs and we saw all the highlights of Israel. Our hotels were great and so was the food. An extraordinary experience I will never forget. I recommend this particular trip with Alan.

The tour was absolutely wonderful. The sights were amazing but even better was our tour guide Adina. She was a walking encyclopedia with a terrific personality. If she didn’t know an answe she immediately checked it out. We can’t wait to return to Israel. Our only complaint was the unavailability of Masada which your company should have been aware of and this information passed on to us. Adina did substitute other sights so she adapted to the situation that your company should have been aware of. Our tour group got along beautifully and we are still in contact with many of them. Again please thank Adina for giving us an exceptional time in israel
