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.

Pick up at hotel and continue to the city center, the oldest part of Rio. The walking tour includes many interesting points such as Candelaria church, Praça XV square, the “Travessa do Mercado” alley, Paço Imperial museum, the cultural center located in the beautifully-restored Banco do Brasil building, the Casa França-Brasil museum, Ouvidor Street and Gonçalves Dias Street, where the traditional Confeitaria Colombo bakery is located.

Highlights
    Day 1 – Arrive Easter Island
  • You will be welcomed upon arrival and transferred to th hotel. Overnight at your hotel.
  • Day 2 – Full Day Excursion – Moais Route and Anakena Beach
  • Breakfast at the hotel. Depart from the hotel and travel to the east of the island to visit the Ahu Vaihu and Akahanga, temples formed by platforms or stone altars where Moais (huge monolithic figures carved of volcanic stone) and Pukaos (the hats or topknots formerly placed on top of some Moai statues)are assembled together. Continuing the trip, we will go to Rano Raraku, a volcanic crater formed of consolidated ash, which also contains a lagoon. The volcano has a historical significance for the island, because the Moais were carved on its slopes. Currently there remain 397 of these impressive sculptures. Then we will visit the surprising Ahu, a ceremonial platform, on the island. Ahu Tongariki has got 15 huge Moais. But in fact, it is Te Pito Kura which has the largest statue erected on an Ahu, the Moai Paro, which is 10 meters high and 85 tons in weight. Next to Te Pito Kura we will find a large spherical stone which is identified as the navel of the world – Te Pito o Te Henua. Finally, we will finish our day resting at Anakena, the most popular beach on the island. Besides its natural beauty, what makes it a unique beach is a row of Moais which turn their backs to the sea. Definitely Anakena is an unique landscape to enjoy before returning to the hotel. (BL)
  • Day 3 – Rano Kau Volcano, Orongo Ceremonial & Ahu Akivi
  • Breakfast at the hotel. Depart from the hotel towards the Cave Ana Kai Tangata, where on one of its walls, birds are drawn in a stylized painting, representing Manutara (sea swallows) and whose precious egg was the nucleus of the annual birdman competition. Later visit the Vinapu sector archaeological site which is characterized by its large balsato tiles made to fit carefully in a way similar to Inca constructions of Cuzco. Continue to Rano Kau, a lake with small islands of reeds and lush vegetation and micro fauna and the Orongo ceremonial village where the ceremony of the Bird Man competition was performed. The birdman was appointed by the king and was the spiritual and political leader during a period of one year. The sacred character is represented as a human shrunken body with a large beak and is sculpted in many engraved stones. Return to the hotel.
  • Afternoon tour of Ahu Akivi, one of the few platforms on the island where the Moais face the ocean. According to legend these structures represent the seven explorers sent by King Hotu Matu’a before his colonization voyage. After this visit continue to the site of Puna Pau, a small red scoria crater, where the Pukao, a kind of hat or topknot placed on top of some Moais of the island, were made. Finally, visit Ahu Uri Aurenga, which has a single statue and has the distinction of having an orientation in the line of the winter solstice, marking not only the beginning of this season (tonga), but also the times of different taboos (prohibitions) regulating fishing and other activities on the island. Astronomically it is also facing east, lined with two neighboring hills, and Maunga Mataengo and Maunga Tararaina, as well as 2 smaller Ahu nearby. Return to the hotel. (B)
  • Day 4 – Depart Easter Island
  • The day is at leisure until the transfer to the Hanga Roa Airport for the departing flight. (B)

I scheduled a trip to Quito and Galapagos in late 2019 to mid 2020 and pandemic came along, changing all plans. I was lucky enough to have Jacky as my caregiver at Responsible Travel. It was a year and a half of a lot of patience and partnership until the trip finally took off! And it was simply perfect! Everything went well and Jacky made an incredible itinerary. I can only thank her for the excellent service and all the attention I received. Really wonderful.

Excellent experience with Responsible Travel and Nicky Lodge in the Cuyabeno in the Ecuadorian Amazon. Flor and Fran have tried everything for our trip to Cuyabeno which provided us with an unforgettable experience in the Amazon. They recommend everyone to travel to this place because they will feel the magic of being in the Amazon forest surrounded by all the fauna and flora that exists there and all the animals that can be observed.In Dracena Lodge travelers are treated like family which makes us feel at home. So I highly recommend a trip to the Amazon with a stay at Dracena Lodge and through Responsable Travel that Flor and Fran will surely help you organize your trip.
