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.

I booked the Real Affordable Peru Trip with OAT and payed in advance. OAT had to cancel the trip due to the Corona Virus. When I called them, they offered to reschedule the trip or give me a full refund - since they cancelled - not me. I elected to receive the full refund. Three weeks late they sent me an email stating "upper management" had decided not to give any refunds - all the cancelled trips were being rescheduled instead. I called stating I had already been promised a refund and they said that was no longer an option. I filled complaints with the better business bureau, VISA, and the Massachusetts Attorney Generals Office. OAT called me back and said they would now refund my money in 4-6 days. Called back 10 days later and they said they would refund the money as soon as I dropped my complaint with VISA. Since they have lied to me over the past several months, I am sticking with my claims and still fighting for my refund. I would recommend you check out other online reviews, including the BBB.

Enchanting Peru - Originally, we had planned on putting our own Peru adventure together, however, it became quite daunting not knowing which transportation companies to use, which hotels were conveniently located and how to reliably book all of our activities and related tickets. We were "swirling" and not making progress with our planning. We were actually considering a different destination and basically giving up on visiting Peru. Then, a very good friend (who has been on over 20 SmarTours) forwarded an e-mail to us on the "Enchanting Peru" trip through SmarTours. Our prayers were answered! For a very reasonable price, with an amazing itinerary, all we had to do was to make a telephone call...book it...and pack! There ended up being 14 total people on the trip..., which was perfect. All hotels we stayed in were top notch, each day well planned and the transportation comfortable and reliable. The best thing that happened to us on this trip was that our tour guide was Dagmar Becerra, a resident of Cusco. Dagmar became our teacher, our trusted advisor, a comedian, a kind disciplinarian (when some of us deserved it) and most of all, a friend. We learned more from her in 11 days, than we have in years. Based on this first experience with SmarTours, I plan on booking with them next year...but the next tour guide has big shoes to fill. (Thank you Dagmar - you ARE the BEST!!!)

This was my first tour with a large company of any kind, and I wasn't sure what to expect. But I've always wanted to go to Macchu Piccu and wasn't familiar enough with S. America to organize a trip on my own. My choice of Smartours was quite serendipitous. My experience with Smartour was on the whole exemplary. First and foremost, I truly don't know how you keep the prices so low, considering the level of services, accomodation, food and experiences we were given. Our two guides, Lucho and Celestino, were almost frighteningly capable and universally knowledgeable about their country, its history, customs, sites and general info, and worked flawlessly with the other players in the tour, from hotel staffs to bus drivers to security. When we almost ran afoul of a nationwide strike that shut down roads in and around Puno, our schedule was changed and our transporation to the airport for our flight to Lima managed half an hour before the roads closed. Then we had the choice of staying on the comfortable, heated bus or the unheated airport til our check-in time. no drama, no trauma. The hotels were excellent, the Sonesta Posada del Inca Yucay being a favorite, considering it was originally a 16th century monastery that had been updated flawlessly. Meals offered were universally excellent, with optional meal recommendations excellent. I especially appreciated getting to see so much in our ten days, not just Macchu Piccu, but Cuzco, the Sacred Valley and all of the small villages and Incan historic sites there in, Macchu Piccu--of course, and the area around Lake Titicaca. Even the time spent in Lima was delightful and instructive. Thank you for the help of every person involved in making this a real trip of a lifetime. I do have one small suggestion. We arrived in Lima and immediately flew to Cuzco at 12,000 ft.. I was mistaken in that I thought we would be heading to a lower altitude before participating in any activities. But we ate a meal at the top of Cuzco before any of us could acclimate to the altitude. As you know, no matter what kind of shape a person is in, he or she can still have trouble with altitude and not know it til we get there. And so it was for some of us. If possible, it might help to have that first meal down the hill a ways. Yeah, that's it. That's my only suggestion. Everything else was all but flawless. I have been and will continue to recommend Smartour to anyone who asks.

Trip was fabulous, Enrique Virto was a superior host and tour guide. The altitude was a problem for both my husband and I as was the inability to brush our teeth with the water, but the hotels helped with Oxygen and Coca Tea to ease the altitude sickness and Enrique was encouraging and very helpful during the entire trip. He was very considerate of our abilities or inabilities and always considered our group as a whole. He was incredibly informative and knowledgeable about all of the places we visited and his English was excellent. The accommodations were excellent, clean rooms, comfortable beds and very kind and helpful staff. This is my 3rd trip with SmarTours and I will travel with them in the future.

The guide was wonderful. Very organized trip. Hotel accommodations exceeded my expectations. The daily activities were very tiring. Perhaps a lighter schedule would be better. Overall a delightful trip
