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.

The Treasures of Portugal trip focuses on the highlights of the cultural and artistic heritage of this fascinating country. The chosen destinations and sites rarely disappointed, and there was always something awe-inspiring at each stop. The tour provides a great balance between programmed and free time, allowing you to see what you want or find time to explore on your own. The fact that few dinners and no lunches were provided afford you the opportunity to discover the places and tastes that intrigue you as you discover the variety of offerings available in each location.

The destinations chosen are smart and live up to the promise that these are the country's treasures. Our guide was brilliant - she knew well the backstory of the locations and the significance of the art and architecture. Each part of the tour was a lesson in history, presented with excitement and passion. Her adoration of the history and culture of her countrymen was palpable and infectious, and gave the touring experience much added value.

Well planned, organized, balanced, affordable, and utterly enjoyable. Very highly recommended.

Good itinerary, not so good tour director

Although I enjoyed the itinerary, we often had issues with our tour director. He was nice sometimes, but other times “snapped” at guests and argued with them. He repeatedly left us with a local guide and twice people were left behind and had to find their way back to the hotel on their own. He spoke to me very disrespectfully twice, and when he left us with a local guide she left 3 of us behind (two of us were helping an elderly woman on our tour and she couldn’t walk very well). He blamed it on us. Can you imagine what would have happened had we not helped her? Also, we started to make an email list at the end of the trip and when he saw us doing that he said not to worry, that he would send everyone an email list after the trip. One wee, no list, two weeks, nothing. He didn’t give us his email address so I texted him. He said he would send it. A week later I got an email from him saying that it was a new company policy that, even with our written permission, he was not allowed to share them. I have pictures of other people that they asked me to take, and no way to contact them. Globus reps said they had no such policy. Sooo frustrating!

Buyer Beware: CostSaver is NOT Trafalgar, regardless of how much they like to conflate the two companies!

If I had never traveled on my own, or never gone on a group tour, or even never gone on a Trafalgar tour before, I might have thought this one was okay. However, I have done all three, and this tour pales in comparison. Even some of my fellow travelers on this trip who've never been on a tour before were a bit taken aback and felt duped by this one. Here's why:

Trafalgar now owns Insight (a higher end group tour company) and Costsaver (a lower end one). Insight Tours doesn't use the name Trafalgar--they don't need to. They hold their own reputation. Costsaver, on the other hand, has the Trafalgar name virtually everywhere . . . letterhead, email addresses, invoices, etc. They are banking on Trafalgar's reputation to prop them up is my guess, as they certainly don't hold their own.

First, they put you in perfectly adequate lodging, but it's in the middle of nowhere, quite literally. Our hotel in Barcelona required two forms of public transportation to reach, and the only thing near it was a gas station. Seriously. Our hotel in Madrid was not even in Madrid; it was in a commercial trucking/warehouse/shipping area and was a 37-euro cab ride each way to Madrid. The hotel clerk said that, other than a bar next door (which proved terrible), there was NOTHING in walking distance. Luckily, the hotel in Lisbon was at a metro stop, so we were able to navigate the public transport and spend some time in Lisbon.

Soooo . . . if you don't pay for the non-included excursions, you are in effect--as many of us complained--a hostage! Stuck in a hotel on the Outskirts of Nowhere. If you do plan to go on all the excursions, plan on spending an additional 550-600 euros, and expect some pretty mediocre food at the restaurants on those excursions. I can't see how they think they are saving you any money at all.

As for the excursions themselves, some were great, but some should The tour guide handed out the excursion checklist while we were on the bus and told us we had to choose which ones we wanted to go on and hand it in to him in a few hours. Then he proceeded to sell, sell, sell the excursions like a used-car salesman. One gentleman on the tour said he's been a commission-only salesman for many years, and he'd never seen such aggressive and pushy salesmanship. This was a very common sentiment among the others as well.

The trip I went on with Trafalgar a few years ago was nothing like this. Please do not be confused: Costsaver is NOT Trafalgar. I will never make this mistake again.

I would have given 5 stars but we weren't able to visit the Alhambra and were notified a few days before. This was something that we wanted to see and it was a big disappointment. We should have been told sooner since we reserved this back in Jan.
