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.

First, let me say the customer service at Amtrak Vacations was incredible. Very responsive and quick to help. The train from Chicago to Salt Lake City was great. Very clean. Met a lot of nice people. From Salt Lake City to West Yellowstone, we were on a bus with no AC… and it was our first introduction to our “travel buddies.” I wasn’t fully aware that other people could book the same exact trip as us. We thought it was more customized to what we wanted. In hindsight, we wouldn’t made more adjustments to our travel. We soon found out that all of our travel buddies were folks our grandparents age and older, ready to complain about any and everything. We quickly decided to ditch the guided tour to Yellowstone and rent our own car. Thank God we did!! We enjoyed our time together so much more than we would have on a shared bus.
The Yellowstone bus was okay. We got 3 hours of time to ourselves in the park and stayed away from the group. Be prepared for more bus issues (like no AC, loud people, etc).
We were supposed to take a train to and from SF, but we instead flew to SF so we could have a whole day exploring the city, and then rented a car to be able to drive down highway 1 from SF to LA. Absolutely beautiful experience. So glad we drove down highway 1 instead of connecting trains and buses to get down there.
Amtrak Vacations was able to refund a small amount, but not nearly enough to cover the things we cancelled in order to “do our own thing.” If I would’ve known how this trip was set up ahead of time, I would have altered our intercity to include the rental car to Yellowstone and LA instead of the buses/trains.

Amtrak is great for the long-journey routes, as long as you have time for any possible 1-2hour delays. If you have buses and shorter train rides in your route, I highly recommend switching them out for a car.
But! If you are older, don’t want to think about planning, and need constant assistance, the full trip is probably best for you.
Amtrak sleepers are VERY small. We knew this ahead of time and came prepared, but many people in our group obviously were not. By the amount they complained about everything, it was obvious they didn’t do much research before hand.
In the end, we probably could’ve done this whole trip for 5k, but instead spent close to 8k through Amtrak vacations.
If I was doing it again, I would have used Amtrak Vacations package as a “guide” and then book all hotels, tickets, and cars on my own.

A very exciting and educational trip. If you have Malo as your guide, you’re in very safe hands, as he is awesome! Activities not to miss are the ruins at Tikal, the ATM caves, Snorkelling in Caye Caulker and Chichen Itza. They were all amazing.

This trip is a perfect introduction to Central America. We loved the variety of the itinerary, and especially enjoyed Guatemala & Belize! Such a shame that Caye Caulker (island in Belize) is not on the itinerary from next year, as that was our favourite place! A couple of long travel days but it’s all part of it. Overall, the trip was awesome and has made us want to head back to Central America ASAP

Awesome, fast paced trip that has a great balance of culture, relaxing beaches and wildlife. The ATM caves and Tikal ruins are must do's, and Caye Caulker snorkeling with sharks is amazing. There are a lot of optional extras so budget accordingly. Cristina our guide was awesome.

Highlight for us was the visit at sunrise to Chichen Itza (extra cost) which you won't want to miss. Hotel accommodation can be a bit basic and variable but is always clean. You also need to budget around $300 for additional trips such as snorkelling and cave
