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.

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.

"We recently booked an extensive two week trip of Argentina and Chile through Across South America We approached the company by email (in English) from Australia and advised them what our interests and budget were.
They then came up with a wonderful itinerary which covered our interests perfectly. They chose excellent hotels and scheduled internal flights and airport pick-ups, etc perfectly. Everything ran like clockwork.
We paid from Australia using the companies secure payment providers. We had no issues at all with the payments.
We were given a contact within the company who kept in touch with us (using WhatsApp) while we travelled. Our contact was always happy to answer our questions (which were sometimes asked outside of normal working hours).
We can strongly recommend Across Argentina as a secure and highly experienced travel agency. You will not be disappointed if you use them.

I researched many different travel opportunities that would incorporate family, community service and high end travel and they simply did not exist until I found Hands up Holidays. Chris, was extremely efficient and provided an amazing itinerary that my 14-year old daughter and myself enjoyed thoroughly. We visited Peru, Bolivia and Ecuador. Over a three week span, all the logistics, accommodations, travel and private guides were executed with precision but the most satisfying aspect of the trip was the interesting, heart warming and fulfilling important community service that Chris organized for us. In addition, Chris had many extra wonderful surprises included! Chris checked in with us daily and confirmed our guides were to our satisfaction. I highly recommend using Chris for all kinds of travel.

They were very punctual and the guides were accommodating and informative. The service exceeded our expectations. The hotels were wonderful and the staff great. All forms of transportation were perfect and all were very polite. In Peru, my stay in in the Amazon lodge was a once in a lifetime experience - staying in the heart of the jungle and being at one with nature was an amazing feeling. The staff there were very attentive and friendly. The lake Titicaca tour in Puno was also a lot of fun - especially visiting the floating islands and learning about its nature and history was very interesting!

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.

Amazon Rainforest Tours and Travel Guide

Amazon Rainforest Attractions & Landmarks Guide

Whether you explore the Amazon rainforest on a small ship or river cruise, stay at a lodge deep in the jungle, or even join a camping expedition via traditional dugout canoe, a trip to the world's largest rainforest -- which stretches more than two million square miles across swaths of Brazil, Peru and Ecuador -- is one of travel's most iconic experiences. With howler monkeys providing an eerie soundtrack, you can go in search of macaws, sloths, jaguars, remote villages, and exotic medicinal plants used by indigenous tribes. You'll want to travel in the company of the best local guides and tour operators, and Stride can guide you to them.

Bolivia

Rurrenabaque, accessible from La Paz by a short flight or harrowing bus journey through the mountains, is Bolivia's gateway town for both pampas and jungle tours. Tours of the pampas (the wetlands that border the rainforest) offer better chances of seeing wildlife, while the jungle tours offer the chance to trek through the wilderness. For the budget conscious, Bolivia is usually the place to find the cheapest Amazon tours.

Pampas tours typically consist of a boat journey up the river, a day exploring the area, and another boat trip back to Rurrenabaque. An abundance of wildlife can be seen along the riverbank, including capybaras (the world's largest rodent), caimans, monkeys, and an array of colourful birds. Off the boat, you'll get a chance to plod through swampland and hopefully see an anaconda. Beware of disreputable tour operators who feed anacondas, and even if your guide insists it's ok, never touch one. Reading reviews is a good way to assure your tour operator is above board.

A highlight for many visitors to the pampas is the chance to swim with pink river dolphins. Watching them pop unexpectedly out of the murky water right next to you is a thrilling experience (one that is best undertaken in the late afternoon when the water is warmer, rather than in the morning when the water is frigid).

Jungle tours from Rurrenabaque can last anywhere from two days to a month. You will get a chance to trek your way through the wilderness and camp out in the rainforest. These treks also begin with a boat journey, and may include floating in a rubber tube down the river. After trekking through dense forestation, you'll set up camp in the wilderness and cook dinner over an open fire. Other activities may include fishing in the river or making handicrafts.

Brazil

The massive country of Brazil is dominated by the Amazon rainforest (though depressingly less so as time goes on). Tours to the rainforest are available from various points throughout the country, and tours to the Pantanal (wetlands) are available in the south of Brazil.

Similarly to Bolivia, the wetlands are where you'll stand your best chance of seeing animals. Tours of the Pantanal start from of Campo Grande or Cuiaba. While more expensive than those in Bolivia, they offer a greater range of activities, usually including canoeing, piranha fishing, boat trips, walking trips, and floating down the river. All of the animals from the pampas, aside from dolphins, can also be spotted in the Pantanal. There are also good odds that you'll see giant otters and even jaguars. Less easy to spot are tapirs and giant anteaters, so keep your eyes peeled. A knowledgeable guide can greatly enhance your tour of the Pantanal, as well as increasing your chances of finding elusive wildlife.

Trips deeper into the rainforest in Brazil are usually undertaken by boat, whether it's a luxury cruise liner or a riverboat with hammocks. Along the way, you'll have a chance to spot pink dolphins, caimans, and monkeys, as well as trying some piranha fishing. Strolls through the jungle may also include some close encounters with tarantulas! Many tours include overnight stays in ecolodges, where you can fall asleep to the sounds of the surrounding nature.

Peru

Peru can be a popular jumping off point into the Amazon, as tourists combine a rainforest tour with a trip to Machu Picchu. While some shorter tours start from the city of Cusco, adventurous types can also head to northern Peru for some deeper jungle treks. Excursions are undertaken on foot or by boat, and highlights include spotting river otters, monkeys, caimans and macaws.

Ecuador

The Amazon basin in Ecuador is one of the most biodiverse places on earth. Here, you'll have the chance to sleep in ecolodges in the rainforest, surrounded by colorful hummingbirds and butterflies. As well as offering similar rainforest treks, boat rides, and animal spotting to other countries. Ecuador also offers visitors the chance to meet and stay with indigenous tribes living in the Amazon. This is a significant undertaking, as the indigenous communities in Ecuador's rainforest are extremely isolated and hard to reach. However, if you are willing to spend the money to fly into the community on a puddle-jumper type of aircraft, and then stay in one of the lodges owned by the villagers, you are sure to have a once in a lifetime experience. 

Colombia

If you're looking for an adventurous exploration of the Amazon, and the chance to feel like an intrepid explorer, then Colombia may be the place to find it. Few visitors choose Colombia for their Amazon trip, meaning you may have this unspoiled land to yourself and a higher chance of seeing wildlife (though it may mean fewer resources and choices will be available). Similarly to Ecuador, Colombian rainforest tours offer the chance to stay with indigenous tribes, where you can make handicrafts and try unique local foods such as mojojoy, a worm that lives in palm trees and is eaten fried.
