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.

We spent seven days on our safari across Tarangire, Serengeti
and Ngorongoro and we had the best experience with Brilliant
Adventures and Safaris. We had heard a lot of horror stories
about safari companies swindling foreigners in Tanzania so
honestly, we were quite unsure of how our experience would
be, but Brilliant Adventures just made it brilliant.

We had a wonderful Safari trip, saw all the animals, slept in
nice lodges, including some luxury tented camps, and were
guided by a very experienced guide, who shared with us a lot
of the different ecosystems and the animals. Our safari car
was great, and our guide knew all the places to find the
animals where we were looking for. We recommend Brilliant
Adventures with the remark that a lot of this successful trip
was caused by the knowledge, experience, and the character
of their amazing team.

Me and my two children had an amazing Safari trip to
Tarangire NP, Lake Manyara, Serengeti, Ndutu region and
Ngorongoro NP. How beautiful is Tanzania and how friendly
are the people, thank you, Brilliant Adventures and Safaris
who taught us, all about the wildlife, and the culture. We really
recommend them. One day we had heavy rain in the Serengeti
and all the roads were very muddy. While other drivers got
stuck in the mud our driver drove as a real professional driver
and never got stuck!! Thanks again for a lovely trip.

Unforgettable Experience on our honeymoon. We did a 10 days
tour on Tanzania for our honeymoon with our AMAZING guide
Maximillian. Everything was very well planned by our
consultant Jane; we had a good balance of difference activities
between game drive and walking safaris. It was THE BEST trip!
Maximillian was the best guide, chasing the animals
constantly so that we could see as many animals as possible
and have the best safari experience.

It is no doubt that Brilliant is the best company. I had the
pleasure to spend 4 days in Ngorongoro and Serengeti. I think
that for all of us visiting Africa is the fulfillment of our dreams.
It is important to choose the right guide and support. It is no
doubt that Brilliant is the best company to experience an
incredible and unforgettable vacation in Tanzania. From the
first e-mail to accommodation and food service everything
was delivered in an excellent manner. Brilliant has great
company's culture and offers the best service available.
Highly recommended.
