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.

Despite the rain, the private and guided Istanbul food tour was terrific, engaging and delicious. The best part of the tour was our guide Furkan, who was so knowledgeable, about food and history and just a nice guy who was fun to be with. It felt like spending a day with a good friend showing us around Istanbul. All the places he took us were great, and the food was the top quality. We sampled cheese, clotted cream, menemen, Turkish pepperoni, kokorec, stuffed mussels, and a huge variety of authentic Turkish cuisines and kunefe dessert. The tour was my highlight of 10 days trip in Turkey. I highly recommend booking this tour early in your stay so you can use your knowledge for the time you are in Istanbul.

Furkan did a wonderful job organizing our 10 days long trip to Istanbul, Cappadocia, Ephesus, Pamukkale, and Bodrum he provided plenty of guidance in every part of the planning process. It was clear that he had extensive experience traveling through the country. Furkan was extremely friendly, very accommodating to our personal needs, and gave us great recommendations for our free time. He arranged everything so we didn't have to worry about the details. We have never experienced such wonderful service and support. It all begins with understanding the customer and Furkan really understood what we were looking for. As a foodie and having a genuine passion for Turkish cuisine, he tailored a trip, to ensure that we had the best food experiences in Turkey, and the amenities on tours were fantastic. The sweets in Turkey are unbelievable when compared to United States desserts. The whole experience was really mind-blowing. Turkey is an amazing country filled with amazing people. We would love to return to Turkey and visit other cities. We are so pleased that we did this trip.

My girlfriend and I had a wonderful almost 7 hours culinary walk in the European and Asian side of Istanbul and we enjoyed every minute of it. We strongly recommend the private and guided Istanbul food tour more than anything. It is a great pick with tens of delicious stops, and excellent value for money considering the amount of the food we tasted with an amazing guide Furkan.
He has tremendous energy and you just knew he is so passionate about Istanbul and his job. We didn't know what to expect when we book the the tour however, Furkan made the day so easy and enjoyable. We couldn't have asked for a better guide and experience. It was such a pleasure to have been able to tour Istanbul with Furkan.

Our food tour in Istanbul with Furkan was an absolute pleasure. The local knowledge and immersive experiences are second to none. The food tour was a brilliant introduction to Istanbul's rich culinary, history, cultures, and people both in the Asian and European sides. Furkan went out of his way to make us have the most authentic experience with his culinary suprises.Istanbul is spectacular and the Turks are warm and caring. We loved every moment of the tour. We highly recommend Furkan.
