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.

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.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.

Coming down from inca trail to machu pichu.

I have been on 12 exodus trips and to as rates one of the best.has been guide for 10 years and is still totally enthusiastic.nothing was a bother .terrific organiser.

Lots of walking on this holiday,lots of stone steps.the amazon basin is pretty basic accommodation. Rather squelchy and wet under foot in the forest,but we'll worth it.

Only 8 on trip,no one complained about any thing.everyone thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hi there!! Just got back yesterday from Peru and I wanted to tell you how amazing it was! The itinerary was brilliant because it slowly increased in elevation and we did fine with it-no altitude sickness. Your guides were magnificent!! Loved Marta, Patricia, Odealia, Berta and the folks at the local office. The customer service was impeccable. We also adored Penelope and the culinary experience. The hotels were great too, especially Sumaq. I wanted to stay there longer! I also loved that we were able to go to Uros and spend the night in Taquile. I've been on many group tours and this was by far the best in terms of all around service, itinerary, and guides. I can't wait for India in September!!! Thank you!! Jenn
