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.

Booked a 5 day self drive with Authentic Vacations (A.V.) last year. Agent pushed the insurance saying it would cover us if anything arose forcing us to cancel. Fast forward to this year and Covid-19, First agent laid off and we were assigned another agent that we had no relationship with. The EU is closing their boarders to travelers from the US. We called to cancel our trip and found out that A.V. will hold back 20% of the land cost and we also lose out on the $509 travel insurance. What is the purpose of paying for insurance if they don't provide any service. Recommend you find a local travel agent who will better serve their customers.

I chose Authentic Vacations because of their great reputation, and "peace of mind" guarantee. COVID19 HAS CHANGED EVERYTHING, CAREFUL! We were booked for 9/2020 13 night trip to the UK, Uh Oh. 3/2020 we contacted our first agent to find she was furloughed 2/2020. Uh Oh. Having already paid Authentic $10K+ we tried rescheduling, NO GO. We then asked for a refund. Our 2nd agent, though cordial, had his hours CUT BACK early 3/2020. After 2 months of many contacts with Authentic and NONE of our $10K back, we have hired an attorney. Because Authentic has dragged their feet on getting our money back, we are panicked that any of the tour providers involved could be, if not already insolvent. Will update this review if possible.

This was my 6th fantastic trip with smarTours. You get a lot of "bang for your buck" with smarTours. We had an EXCELLENT guide with Wenche. She was funny, gave us printed details for most mornings, was attentive to everyone's needs and made great suggestions. I regularly refer people to smarTours. The single supplement is one of the most reasonable in the industry.

I thought it was great. One problem was the long layover in Helsinki before going on Sweden. It was over 5 hours. Also, the process for getting a VISA for Russia was rather expensive and tedious. I like that they gave us time to explore on our own most places. Tour guide was great.

Everyone on this tour, including my sister and I had travelled with smartours before. Thre's a reason....a lot of bang for your buck. The accommodations on this trip were excellent...not only 4 star but in very central locations. The included tours were all very good too. The guide pointed out things of interest for our spare time. The guide was very good. I don't rate him excellent for one reason...he never gave us his cell phone number or hotel room number. How could he be reached in an emergency....? Everything else was great!
