Travel Style Travel Style Relaxed A lot of free time, with very few inclusions. Ideal for independent and/or low-key travelers and cruisers.
Full on For those looking to maximize their sight seeing time. You thrive on a packed day’s schedule from 8 am to 6pm, with some (but limited) free time. Most activities and meals included.
Mixed You will have solid amounts of both free time and structured time with some activities and meals included.

Itinerary Focus

Trip Type Trip Type 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.
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.
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.
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 / Independent 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.
Vacation / Holiday Package Similar to a self guided tour, this usually involves a home base, such as a hotel or resort, with packaged activities and day tours as a part of the stay.
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.

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.
Basic - 2 star You'll stay in no-frills, but clean and comfortable, hotels or guesthouses. A 'Basic' trip might also involve a few nights of camping.
Value - 3 star Mid-range budget with accommodations ranging from comfortable lodges, guesthouses, and homestays to three star hotels.
Premium - 4 star 3 to 4 star western hotel equivalents. While not all lodging will be 'luxury' they will be quite comfortable by western standards.
Luxury - 5 star The highest level of comfort and service. All accomodations are in four or five star hotels, boutique lodges or high-end homestays.

Accessible Travel Tours and Travel Guide

Accessible Travel Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Accessible Travel can be defined as any tour company or travel experience (such as an attraction) that is open and navigable by those traveling with a disability. If you are handicapped, walk with a cane or walker, or use a wheelchair, arranging travel can be difficult, but it's definitely not impossible! We're here to help!

There are many vacation options for people with disabilities, and it’s probably not as difficult as you might think to travel almost anywhere in the world.

The Most Accessible Cities in Europe

Europe is still one of the most popular travel destinations in the world, particularly for older travelers. The romantic cobblestone streets however, can present a problem for some. And Europe is absolutely covered with them.

Many cities in Europe have been making vast improvements to how they can be more friendly to disabled travelers. But unlike the United States, not everywhere is held to the same legal standards for making all transportation, attractions, and restaurants accessible.

Of the major cities, a few that stand out are Berlin, Vienna, London, and Barcelona. These cities are fairly flat, and easily navigable for wheelchairs or walkers.

Traveling in a Wheelchair

There are many things to be aware of when traveling with a wheelchair. Many tour companies are beginning to offer tours that are welcoming to wheelchair travelers, but always contact them regarding your desired itinerary.

It is recommended to have a collapsible wheelchair, as most tours and cruises will require this. Also, some cruises, while accessible for wheelchairs, may not be able to accommodate wheelchair travelers on every excursion. For more information visit our guide on wheelchair travel.
