Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

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.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.

Yeah so like many people I was going to France when the pandemic hit. The trip was canceled only got half of the money back. When we went to look at the insurance and contract information which was online; it could no longer be found. They closed our account before we had made a decision which means we had no access to any information including billing... we had no access to the money we payed. There first offer gave most students no money back... for a $5000 trip $1000 is not enough. I saved up my own money and I felt hurt it was all going to waste because they didn’t want to give peoples there money. They gave us low ball offers and tried to push us roll over the trip with the school. The problem was this was most students senior year and they would not be at the school anymore. I know a lot of people where excited for this trip and devastated that we could not go. But the refunds they tried giving ruined mine and my friends love for traveling. They really were not willing to work with us and made a uncertain time even more bleak. I would never travel with this company nor let anyone I know travel with them.

The Khumbu trip with Elder and Shree was an amazing experience. They took great care of the group from the beginning to the end. The Khumbu trek was definitely challenging, but with their support and encouragement totally doable. And the views of the mountains were so amazing. They seemed to get better at every turn. I highly recommend this trip to anyone wanting to hike in the Himalayas.

I really did not know what to expect when this trip was booked other than having the chance to see Nepal and trek the Himalayas. There was no way to anticipate what it was really like when we there from the moment we arrived in Kathmandu and experienced the traffic on the way from the airport to the hotel, to the heartstopping landing at Lukla airport, to seeing the mountains for the first time, to the actual trekking through the mountains, valleys and villages. There is something powerfully overwhelming and awe inspiring being among the steep peaks and deep river valleys in an area of the world where life has gone on and people have learned so survive for what seems forever. The trek and the adjustment to the Nepalese diet was, at times, demanding, but every day was worthwhile. There was something deeply moving and transformational about this trek compared to other outdoor adventures. Perhaps it is the holy mountains or the deeply spiritual nature that is everywhere on display walking among stupas, prayer flags and stones carved or painted with Sanskrit that makes Nepal and the trek so extraordinary. Even after almost two weeks back, I can still feel the energy of this trip in every moment.
