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.

In May, 2021 I booked Amtrak Vacation tour from Seattle, WA to East Glacier & back for myself and my 13 year old grandson. Booking the trip was the only easy thing to occur. The trip was to leave Seattle at 4:40 pm and arrive in East Glacier at 9:40 am the next day. Dinner & breakfast were included since we had a sleeper compartment. The meals were horrible! They were microwave meals that were tasteless! The best food was the breakfast muffin, which they were out of on the return trip. We were also told there would be an observation car. Unfortunately we did not have it when we boarded and could not enjoy the views at all! We were told onboard that we would not pick up the observation car until Spokane, which for us was the middle of the night! When I booked the trip we were also told the shuttle would enable us to visit Glacier, take a boat cruise on Two Medicine Lake, etc. A car was not needed.
Unfortunately less than two weeks prior to the trip, I received an email that the shuttle was not running and the boat tour was canceled. I immediately tried calling, but they were closed for the weekend. On Monday morning I was on hold for 1 hour 45 minutes and finally hung up. In the afternoon I tried again; I was on hold for 2 hours and when I explained my needs, she said I had to talk to customer relations and proceeded to put me on another hold. When I finally got connected, I immediately asked for their direct number in case we were disconnected and - big surprise - there is no direct line! This is the poorest customer relations in the world! I should have guessed at that point that the company really does not care once they have your money. They were absolutely no help at all. They could not help me rent a car, offer solutions of how to get around, etc. I asked what were we going to do at the lodge, the agent said they do have a pool. When we arrived the pool was not open! The Amtrak representative just apologized, she could not connect me to a supervisor. When I suggested the supervisor could call me back within 24 hours, she took my name & number, but you guessed it - no one called. Customer Service is nonexistent. It was only when I called the Glacier Park Lodge that I learned they had known the shuttle was not running since at least April. Amtrak Vacations lied to me and sold the trip under false pretenses and made no attempt to help me. The Lodge was also able to give me the local name of the car rental and I was finally able to secure a car. To add insult to injury, Amtrak gave me a $100 voucher to use on a future trip with them. I will never go on another Amtrak Vacation! Frank Marini is the CEO of both Yankee Leisure Group (travel company) and Amtrak Vacations. He has worked in the travel industry for many years including Collette Vacations. He is familiar with travel companies and knows they offer great customer relations; and many offer refunds when things go wrong - why is so adamant about the "no refund" policy? I would question any company affiliated with him. Beware and do not book with Amtrak Vacations.

Might be nice for older folk, but if you are in your 20s-30s and hoping for adventure, this isn’t it.

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.

This greedy and unethical company is being sued for keeping money from school children and their parents after the company canceled trips due to Coronavirus. They have a pattern of canceling trips and keeping your money and you get nothing! They only care about money and not earning it.

Travelling around North America and Canada with Intrepid Travel was a hugely enjoyable experience. Our guide was essentially to the successful flow of the trip melding the group together and communicating great enthusiasm. When I lost my bag our guide arranged for it to be Fedexed to the next hotel and it arrived on time with all of the contents still I place. A great experience.

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. Would definitely recommend Intrepid, and plan to travel with them again

This is an amazing trip. There is a lot of traveling but it is very much worth it, to get the opportunity to see the very best of Alaska. The scenery is spectacular, especially in early September as the colours were changing. We saw a great variety of wildlife and had some fantastic experiences such as sea kayaking and trekking across a glacier. The additional activities are expensive but definitely worth it, and if you can afford it don't miss out. As Alaska is relatively remote, we found the cost of meals expensive too, compared to the UK. Take bug spray, thermals, binoculars and a sense of adventure.
