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.

Have planned another dive trip with Amy Garrow. She has been exceptionally helpful. Her knowledge and expertise are without compare. She goes out of her way to help her customers. I have recommended her to several friends. Working with her is like sharing with a great friend. I have not had the pleasure of meeting her in person but am more than happy to sing her praises. Will continue to deal with her when looking at dive trips.

I cannot put into words how wonderful Cammie is! We were trying to go to Bonaire for over a year. She kept having to reschedule our flights and room. We finally went and had an amazing time! I’m currently trying to book my next dive trip through her!

First class dive travel agency. Cammie with Caradonna has helped us book two dive trips - one to Palau and one to Belize. Cammie handled all the details and facilitated communications with the resorts. Both trips were excellent.

We have used Cheap Caribbean for many vacations, and if everything goes well, you will be fine. But, if there are any problems, good luck! You are on your own to make it work! We had a trip planned for November 2020 with Cheap Caribbean and also purchased enhanced insurance because we were told we could cancel for any reason and get a full refund. COVID hit and it was not safe to travel, so I called in September to cancel and our Hell began! When I called, I was told we would only get 75% of our money back, even with the insurance. I was even told to call the insurance company myself! Instead of loosing any money, I put the trip on credit with Cheap Caribbean so I wouldn't loose any of our money. When I called to rebook, I was told the credit had to be used by one date and the airline credit had to be used 5 months before that. They told me there was nothing they could do to extend my flight credit and I would have to call the airlines myself. Cheap Caribbean was my booking agent! They took my money, and yet when there was a problem, I was put in charge of calling all agencies involved. After more than 32 phone calls and emails and more than 38 hours on hold with Cheap Caribbean, the airlines, the insurance company, and the transportation company, we finally went on our trip! On top of all the issues, Cheap Caribbean booked us on Spirit airlines and never told us we had to pay extra for carry on bags, boarding passes, and seats! Also, our flight was changed without our knowledge and because of the change, we lost an entire day of our paid vacation. I was asked by one of the many customer service agents what I was asking for and I told her I would like an extra day at the resort to compensate us for the day we lost. That never happened, even though I met someone on the plane who received an extra day from them. On the Cheap Caribbean website it states "they are committed to your satisfaction, from the first click through your entire trip!" They are NOT! They take your money as the booking agent and then you are on your own! I had a contract with Cheap Caribbean and they did not honor it! Do not use them to book your trip!

The planning of our trip to Belize was extremely easy and efficient as Cammie always responded quickly and provided all information needed. Because of this efficient planning the trip went smoothly and there were never any major issues. Turneffe Island resort was fabulous. The dive staff was wonderful. Within a day they learned how everyone wanted their equipment set up and the following days they set things up according to preference. The food at the resort was outstanding and they were always willing to accommodate by providing different options. A very nice touch was the tea/coffee delivered to the room a half hour before breakfast opened up. The rooms were very comfortable and we enjoyed having the outdoor shower in addition to an indoor shower. All together this was one of our best trips to the Caribbean!

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.
