Tour Tips

  • Check the weather for the time of year you want to go, as you will be outside for a majority of the trip.
  • Wear layers during your trip, as the climate can change when you're in a rainforest versus hiking in the sun.
  • Some of the world's largest rain forests are in South America, which will be easier to access with a guided tour.
  • Take your camera or go on a photography tour to capture the scenic landscapes.
  • There's a tour for every activity level. If you want a more relaxing trip, you can go on a British Islands sailing adventure. For something more extreme, try trekking the Torres del Paine.
  • Pick a trip that doesn't pack too many activities in each day to fully enjoy each site.

The Galapagos cruise was incredible

Classic Galapagos: Cruising Darwin’s Enchanted Islands

May 2017
Myths and Mountains
Recommend: Yes
The Galapagos cruise was incredible. We loved our room with a balcony on the Legend. It was thrilling to be able to observe the wild life so closely! Our naturalist guide was terrific and we loved our experience on the ship.
It was magical to see the stars of the southern hemisphere and northern hemisphere at the same time!
Allie was incredibly helpful. Her knowledge and work ethic are top notch.
All the guides were great! Very knowledgeable - Fernando in Quito, and the lovely lady in Guayaquil.

Stunning and unforgettable experience !

Classic India

May 2017
Myths and Mountains
Recommend: Yes
Four of us travelled together, and everyone had different favourite moments. For me, Varanasi was a stunning and unforgettable experience -- from witnessing the celebration of a religious festival to experiencing the chaos of the street life. It was India in a microcosm: history, life & death, colours, noise, mystery, diversity. In contrast, our peaceful evening eating dinner with a family in Jaipur who opened their home to us was every bit as wonderful as any of the sites. They were welcoming, interesting and gracious. And the homemade meal was a bonus.

Guidance through the visa process was quite helpful.

Almost all of the accommodations were first-rate. Ahilya Fort, Dera Mandawa and Sarai at Toria stood out because they were small, and each had a uniquely personal touch. The Fort was in a great location -- adjacent to the town and the river -- yet quiet with amazing rooms and views of the river. We were able to go down to the river early in the morning and see the town come to life. The rooms at Dera Mandawa were beautiful, the staff amazingly attentive. Again, although we were in a city, the hotel was a peaceful refuge. Sarai was a surprising spot next to Panna, again with interesting and helpful owners and staff. If you found places like these throughout India, I would forget about staying the in big five-star hotels.

Kaush, our guide beginning in Indore, was friendly, knowledgeable and attentive to our needs and interests. He handled the logistics of meeting local guides, porters, local drivers and dozens of other details flawlessly. In a disorganized country, he was a model of organization. We knew we were in good hands, start to finish.

A guide he engaged in Khajuraho to take us through the temples stood out as a brilliant and interesting individual. Everyone loved him.

Response time was immediate!!

Indochine: Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia

May 2017
Myths and Mountains
Recommend: Yes
Response time was immediate. There was an ease and smoothness of every connection during a 5 week trip through three countries in Southeast Asia.

M&M was always going above and beyond - finding us unique situations and people to meet and having a true understanding and care for the local people.

Everything was straight forward and easy. We had so many favourite trip memories, but the fact that we were in some popular and crowded places where our guides always knew the best time of day and ways to get the most enjoyment from our visit.

Our favourite hotel was the Song Saa...pure luxury within a natural setting and our favourite guide was Cuoong ...because he would go beyond expectations day in and day out.
Advice: Please do not hesitate to have someone plan a trip for you it makes such a difference

Truly fake. Similar to visiting ‘Paris’ in Vegas.

Costa Rica – The Sea Turtle Initiative

May 2017
Discover Corps
Recommend: No
Truly fake. Similar to visiting ‘Paris’ in Vegas.

It is advertised as volunteering, family friendly and building international network to help undeveloped countries and nature where scientists are involved. The reality is that it is a typical student back-pack trip. There are no activities for children under 12 to participate too either fun or educational. Young, good natured girls are not scientific personnel and the local people disliked anything American. It felt like a prison and a ‘ghetto’ where you devise a cause, do something without the community’s support that deeply affects their lives (ex-poachers) and be high-minded that you are actually helping. Social division, looking down on people and experiencing poverty is not what I wanted to participate in. I am very upset that this has happened and that no one was interested afterwards.

Nature Trips & Tour Advice

If you like being outdoors -- whether it's walking in the hills among spring wildflowers, camping by a mountain lake, listening to the sounds of monkeys howling in the jungle, or taking a hike in the desert at sunrise -- guided tours are a great way to get you there, give you support as needed, and deepen your understanding of what you're seeing and hearing in the natural world. And naturally, Stride can help you find the right path.

The Americas

North America has an incredibly diverse landscape, from mountains to deserts, waterfalls to canyons. Head north to Canada to see the mysterious-looking Spotted Lake. Banff National Park has breathtaking mountains as a backdrop to one of the bluest lakes you've ever seen. The United States also has its share of beauty, with multiple national and state parks well worth visiting. The Grand Canyon, for example, is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. 

South America is rich in nature with rainforests and waterfalls. Get immersed in the lush landscape while keeping your eye out for wildlife. Take a cruise down to Antarctica to see massive icebergs and giant whales passing by. Hike the mountains of Santiago and watch the marvelous sunset at night. There are so many options to pick from for your next nature trip!


Africa is the second largest continent and has so much to see. If you want to go on a safari, pick one in east or south Africa to see the most animals. Looking for hotter weather? Head north to see the stunning Sahara Desert. Pick a tour that includes Madagascar to see lemurs swinging from the trees!


Asia is the largest continent and has a wide variety of countries. Enjoy the warm beaches of the Philippines. Take a river cruise in Cambodia. Hike the Himalayan mountains. The possibilities are endless for your next adventure here.
