Tour Tips
  • A river or small ship cruise is a great way to see the world but if you get seasick, prepare accordingly. Some companies will have remedies available, but not all, so be sure to check with the cruise line about your desired tour. Also ask about the route and whether you should expect rough water.
  • Adhere to advisories about what to bring, especially when it comes to clothing. Out on the water, weather will be different than on shore, and nights will often be colder than expected.
  • Take advanage of the offered shore excursions! In most cases, these are extra cost, but they are well worth it. Especially because often you usually only have a few hours or half a day at each port. The excursions will give you a fuller experience, and can take you a greater distance from port than if you decide to explore on your own.

Guatemala with Tikal, Atitlán and Antigua

5.0 August 2017 Caravan Tours Recommend: Yes We just spent 10 days exploring Guatemala with Caravan tours. The hotels were amazing, the food was delicious, our driver was fantastic and our guide was so knowledgeable and kind. We had two families and 6 kids from the ages of 18-10 and we all learned so much. The guide was wonderful and really had great knowledge of the country. I came back with such a great appreciation for the Mayan culture and people. Thank you, Caravan for a wonderful adventure. Read more

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY

YOLO CRUISE - Mykonos to Santorini

1.0 July 2017 Sail in Greece Recommend: No Do not use this company! Firstly, they overcharged me for an add-on, for which I had to fight to get my money back. Was promised a boat with WiFi, air-conditioning, rooms to accommodate the amount of people they hold and got none of this. The WiFi on the boats never worked, the power was never turned on even whilst the boat was docked (where they had access to power). I had to share a tiny room with a couple and was not comfortable sleeping in so had to sleep outside. The ensuite to the room had a shower that never had hot water and no working toilet, I had to go eat at a restaurant to use their bathroom. From the first day the boat stank like faeces, this did not improve throughout the week. Due to weather, was stuck in Ios for most of the trip and the company provided us with no update as to whether we would make it to our final destination. Upon finishing my trip and reading up online this is not the first time this has happened, they try to coerce people into not posting negative reviews! DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY! Read more

Bad experience!

YOLO CRUISE - Mykonos to Santorini

1.0 July 2017 Sail in Greece Recommend: No Our experience with Sail in Greece was awful. The customer service we received was horrible and consequently our booking was given to someone else without notification. Both deposits were lost and the company refuses to refund the money. Be very cautious booking with this company. Read more

Rivers & Seas Trips & Tour Advice

The world's rivers and seas have become prime cruising destinations, especially over the past decade, as travelers increasingly discover the benefits of small-ship and river cruises. Small ships and river ships are far more intimate than ocean-going mega-liners, sightseeing is at closer distances, port stops are generally more frequent, and smaller ports unavailable to big ships can be added to itineraries. While Europe remains the epicenter of river cruising, Asia, North and South America, and Africa are fast gaining popularity, while small ships sail the MediterraneanBaltic, and Black Seas, among others, and make expeditions to the Polar Regions as well. 

The Alluring Amazon

Perhaps dissuaded by the thought of piranhas, mosquitos, and the many other pesky creatures that make The Amazon their home, people have historically not made this a vacation destination. But that is changing. Taking an Amazon River Cruise is becoming increasingly popular, and itineraries are very diverse. You can choose between hiking through wilderness or a more relaxing journey with a luxury operator.

The Beautiful Blue Danube

A European river cruise is an experience not to be missed. On a leisurly Danube river cruise, you will sail past grand architectural sights, quaint European towns, and impressive history around every turn. An impressive 1,780 miles long, The Danube flows from Germany to Romania on its way to the Black Sea. One of if not the most popular river cruise destination, it is truly a sight to behold and no wonder it has it’s very own waltz. 

The Bright Blue Mediterranean

The stunning blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea have beckoned travelers for centuries. This gorgeous body of water and the land region represented by the same name is one of the most traveled to regions in the world. If you’re visiting any one of the countries that share the Mediterranean's shores, be sure to take advantage of a day trip out on the water. Alternatively, this is one of the most popular destinations for taking a small ship cruise

Mysteries of the Nile

Sail past the intriguing lands of Ancient Egypt and beyond on a Nile river cruise. At 4,258 miles long, it’s importance to the livelihoods and cultures of the people who have depended on it for centuries cannot be understated. History will come alive as you pass iconic structures and the beautiful Middle Eastern landscape.

Crossing the Ocean

An ocean cruise is one of the slowest ways to travel, but also one of the most rewarding. Feeling the pace and the vast distance, you will get a sense for what early explorers must have gone through (and appreciate the luxury of your cruise cabin!). It also affords you the opportunity to visit multiple countries in one trip, which is a great way to cover a lot of ground, if you don't mind the limited amount of time you will get to spend in each place.
