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.

What an experience walking with the lions? Up close and personal with the beastly lions was an experience of a lifetime. A trip I would definitely want to retake Best trip ever. I love animals and our group was able to see the Big 5 at both Kroger and Chobi National Parks. Giraffes like to stay camouflaged but such graceful animals. If you love animals, this trip is for you.

We have done 4 Smartours over the years. South Africa, Macchu Piccu, Galapagos, India and Nepal. Each and every time we have been so very happy with EVERYTHING. The tour, the accommodations, the food, the tour guides, especially the tour guides. Safe, knowledgeable and fun! I recommend Smartours to so many people you would think I worked for the company. 111 countries and the very best of these were done with Smartours.

This was the first tour we’ve taken, having always arranged transpiration, hotel and sightseeing activities by ourselves in the past. I had less confidence about doing this for Africa and when our friends suggested SmarTours, we decided to try it. Efficiently hitting all the highlights, the South African Tour was outstanding and our guide, Jeremy was absolutely top notch. Very informative, on top of every detail, he arranged absolutely everything flawlessly. We will definitely be doing more SmarTours in the future! Signed by Susan Miller-Pinhey

This was our seventh tour with smarTours and it did not disappoint. The hotels, included meals, safaris, and guide exceeded our expectations. We saw the big five and enjoyed every safari. Our safari guides did everything possible to ensure we saw animals from the best vantage point. We extended our trip to Victoria Falls. This is highly recommended. We spent a full morning visiting the falls. Our entire group embarked on the optional tour to Chobe National Park in Botswana; this is not to be missed. If you are taking the extension to Victoria Falls and Botswana, you will need to buy a multi-entry visa upon arrival in Zimbabwe. Our tour guide gave us the entry form the previous night so we could complete it before departure. This was a great time saver, as many other arriving passengers, were filling out their forms at the entrance way to customs. We purchased a Kasi visa, which allowed us to walk across the bridge from Victoria Falls to Zambia. This self-guided tour was a highlight of our trip. The taxi from the Zambia side of the bridge to Livingstone cost $7. South Africa highlights and Safari is our most favorite trip.

Loved our trip to South Africa. We very much loved Sean our guide as he went over and above on keeping all safe, informed, happy and laughing with his wonderful humor. Hotels and restaurants were over and above. Kruger was outstanding and we got to see 2 lion brothers fight right in front of us over a new bunch of lion cubs. Elvis our driver took us on quite a whirl and we saw many animals up close and personal. I got to hold baby lion cubs in my lap and my husband laid beside a Cheetah. Who does that? We loved Table Mountain and the enchanted clouds that rose just as we arrived. Also enjoyed Cape peninsula and Cape Point and the beauty and waters that surround it. The children and their wonderful principal that told us of the conditions of their school and what could improve it. The children's smiles as they sang to us. The wonderful museum that told us of the history and court trials of the past. The wonderful food so healthy and not packaged served in the restaurants. The high cliffs and twisty roads where families walked to their homes high in the mountains. The skyscrapers in Johannesburg and the wonderful progress that is there for all. Yes we highly recommend Smart Tours and their lovely tour in South Africa.
