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!

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!

Amy Garrow helped me to book my diving trips over several years. This time the booking for the Agressor trip was complicated by COVID-19. Nevertheless Amy provided excellent guidance throughout the booking, adjusted flights to eliminate risks and made my trip enjoyable and easy

Amy goes above and beyond for her customers. She has handled every aspect of our dive trips and left me worry-free in a time that is anything but. During this unprecedent time she hasn't missed a step, from rearranging plans to making sure every last detail is covered she has been there for us. Amy is worth her weight in gold and I trust her with all of my dive trips now and in the future.
