Stride Review Since 2004, Kuoda travel has been crafting highly personalized, custom tours to Peru. While they specialize in Peru, they also offer tours in the countries of Ecuador and Bolivia. What Makes Kuoda Travel Stand Out? They are pioneers in personalized travel to Peru. Expert local guides have unrivalled knowledge of local sites, customs, cultures, and geography. They can access insider experiences and have an active on-the-ground presence.

Stride Review Founded in 1987, Lost World Adventures offers private and customized trips to South and Central America and Antarctica. What Makes Them Stand Out? Your guide will get to know you before beginning to plan your customized experience. If you want to have a relaxing beach vacation, they can arrange that. Or if you’d rather hike up the adrenaline, they are able to offer that as well. Who Travels With Them? They accommodate anyone from honeymooners to large groups. Trips are generally in middle price range - you won’t find tremendously budget items here, but they do their best to craft a trip based on all factors, price included. Where Do They Operate? They are focused in South and Central America, with a variety of trips from beach vacations to Costa Rica, food tours in Argentina, or Machu Picchu adventures. They are also among the few small companies providing cruises to Antarctica. Why Travel With Them? For the variety of trip type and theme you can choose from. They have food and wine tours, adventure tours, beach getaways, and cruises - all of which are customizable to your likes and dislikes. If you’d prefer not to overly customize, they have pre-set itineraries as well.

Stride Review Founded in 2010, out of a passion for travel and sharing the unique cultures and nature of Latin America, Latin Adventures strives to provide unique itineraries and unforgettable experiences. What Makes Them Stand Out? A focus on authenticity, sustainability, and local perspective keeps Latin Adventures trips fresh and fun. Despite their young status as a tour operator, they already have received numerous industry accolades. They have a special focus in Ecuador, offering numerous tours around the the countries many diverse regions. Aside from multi-day adventures they also offer day tours. Who Travels With Them?

It’s a great option for families, young single travelers, or those who are young at heart and physically fit. Where Do They Operate? They specialize in Ecuador travel, including the Galapagos Islands. Ecuador is a unique country in that it showcases many different landscapes, climates, and wildlife. You can choose tours in the Andes mountains, the Amazon, or the famous “Volcano Avenue”. Why Travel With Them? If you’re looking for an adventurous, outdoorsy tour with local knowledgeable guides, this could be a great option. They are excited to share the beauty and diversity of Ecuador with travelers and their tours promise to be fun and engaging. Small groups and tailor-made private options are available.

Stride Review Team and challenge based adventure holidays throughout parts of Southeast Asia and the Amazon. What Makes Them Stand Out? This is a unique kind of travel that involves a sense of adventure and competition. Similar to the Amazing Race, you are presented with checkpoints to reach and challenges to participate in along the way. While there is a large element of fun to their approach, they place a strong emphasis on helping and contributing to local communities. Some of their challenges are called “charity challenges” centered around creating as positive an impact as possible. Who Travels With Them? They are definitely geared toward younger travelers, in the 18-30 range. Activities are often physically challenging and the process definitely requires a sense of excitement about the unknown and figuring things out on the ground. Where Do They Operate? Their challenges are focused in SE Asia, and they also operate a challenge in the Amazon. The “Lanka Challenge” takes you in a rickshaw all around Sri Lanka (multiple routes are available). The “Cambo Challenge” takes place in Cambodia with you and a tuk tuk. One route with many fun activities and challenges along the way. The “Philippines Sailing Challenge” involves sailing the waters of the Philippines in a traditional “paraw”. The “Amazon Challenge” takes you into the jungle waterways in a variety of vessels. Why Travel With Them? Consider their tours as a more “down to earth version of the Amazing Race.” They are team based adventure tours, so you’ll definitely enjoy traveling with the more if you like being competitive and working closely with others toward a common goal. The common denominator of course is travel and adventure, so you’ll most likely have a lot in common with everyone from the get-go.

Stride Review Specializing in small-group, multi-day adventure tours and expeditions, Toronto-based G Adventures has been a pioneer in the field since 1990. Founded by entrepreneur Bruce Poon Tip after a backpacking trip to Asia, the company fosters sustainable and environmentally sound tourism practices -- giving back to the communities they visit -- and considers its business “changig people’s lives,” not just offering a vacation. It’s since grown to become the world’s largest independent adventure travel company, with more than 1,350 employees, many of them professionally trained guides. What Makes G Adventures Stand Out? Trips with G Adventures are all encompassing, adventurous, exciting, and fulfilling. Since the beginning, G Adventures has maintained a strong message of engaging with local cultures, being a responsible traveler, and contributing back to communities. Their trips are designed to be life changing. G Adventures strives to create unique experiences for its travelers that start even before the trip itself. The company provides trip inspiration through their Looptail blog and you can connect with fellow travelers via the ‘Departure Lounge’, which is part of G’s ‘Watering Hole’ travel forum. Once on your trip, you will meet your ‘CEO’ or ‘Chief Experience Officer’ who is “responsible for enriching your journey, offering local insight, and pursuing great experiences as they happen.” Most groups average around 12 travelers, with a maximum of 16 on most trips. G Adventures has made a concerted effort to expand their offering beyond youth focused adventures, though this remains a core theme. Your Danube River Cruise will be imbued with the same culturally immersive and adventurous touch as your trekking journey through the Himalayas. Who Will Enjoy Traveling With G Adventures? If you are the kind of traveler who packs running shoes before dress shoes, hiking attire before dinner attire, and a sense of adventure before playing it safe, then G Adventures is the perfect fit for you. You love engaging with locals, meeting new people, and being spontaneous. You also favor experiences over luxury accomodations. Most G Adventures tours have an active focus - expect to be on the move, packing a lot in. That said they do allot generous free time to explore on your own. There’s a chance you may not see every major tourist attraction in the interest of a more “real” experience. But the nice thing is if a particular site is not on the itinerary, you can use your free time to visit. If you are interested in a tour that plans every part of the itinerary down to the minute, G Adventures will probably not be the best fit for you.  While its target market has traditionally been younger travelers in the 18-39 range, G Adventures has expanded significantly, now offering a broad range of trips that appeal to adventurous-minded, culturally curious people of any age. Groups are geographically diverse, with a higher proportion of North Americans than some other operators. G Adventures also does not charge a single supplement, so solo travelers are very welcome on their trips. They offer numerous travel styles, some at a higher budget range, like their National Geographic Journeys. Most G Adventures trips are accessible to low to mid budgets and are ideal for travelers who like experiential small group active travel. Top Destinations   You can find G Adventures trips in most parts of the globe, including 32 countries in Europe, 25 countries in sub-Saharan Africa, 21 countries in Asia, 10 countries in South America, 12 countries in Central America and the Caribbean, five countries in North Africa and the Mideast, plus the U.S., and Canada. A number of destinations are well off the beaten track, from Sao Tome and Principe in West Africa to Borneo in east Asia to the Maldives in the Indian Ocean and both polar regions. Itineraries often focus on more off the beaten path locations; small towns, remote and rural villages, less touristy districts and sites. G Adventures Travel Style Pricing is competitive (cheaper), largely by using “grassroots” approaches: local transport and a mix of privately-owned accommodations, perhaps including homestays and camping. Efforts are made to focus on authenticity with both culinary choices (locally-owned restaurants) as well as transportation methods. G Adventures truly offers something for everyone. Trip styles include Classic, Active, Rail, YOLO (You Only Live Once - for 18-39’s), National Geographic Journeys, Marine, Family, Local Living, and Private Groups. Classic - Classic trips with G Adventures are designed for independent minded travelers who don’t want to miss anything. This is the perfect choice if you want a balanced mix of classic tourist sights and local cultural experiences. Active - Throwing it back to one of the things G Adventures does best. Kayak, walk, hike, trek; experience your destination through the outdoors. These multi-sport trips are great if you hate standing still and enjoy being out in nature. G Adventures Active tours are ideal for those who are relatively physically fit and like a challenge. Rail - A rail journey is a great way to dial it back. Take it slow and really savor the feeling of the journey. Take iconic routes and enjoy the ride. YOLO - “You only live once” is the acronym, and while G Adventures provides adventurous experiences for all, these trips are specifically designed for 18-39 year olds. Get cheeky, get wild, experience life unfettered, as you explore the culture and the local nightlife. If you have the stamina, these trips are once in a lifetime. Kind of like the age range. National Geographic Journeys - A more premium travel experience, these G Adventures trips, as part of a partnership with National Geographic Expeditions, involve the same culturally immersive approach and knowledgeable guides with an elevated level of accommodations and service. Marine - Love to be out on the water? Let G Adventures cruises take you to the far reaches of the globe via river and ocean. Experience incredible sights above and below the surface. Unpack once and enjoy the escape of being a part of the crew and passengers. Family - Adventure tours aren’t always especially friendly to younger travelers. G Adventures Family Friendly tours make adventure activities accessible for you and your youngsters! Trips often have an educational element, and are designed with multiple ages in mind. Local Living - Get to the heart of it with a homestay. These tours are designed to make you really feel at home and appreciate the feel and rhythm of living like a local. Private Groups - If you and your family, or a group of friends want the fun all to yourself, G Adventures can plan a private group trip just for you. Note: part of the culturally immersive experience when traveling with G Adventures is the use of public transportation. This means carrying your own luggage on buses, trains, etc - sometimes during commute hours! So pack light for your own comfort and the comfort of those around you. Why Choose a Tour With G Adventures? For those travelers seeking an exciting, professionally guided, and culturally immersive travel experience G Adventures is the perfect tour company to consider. Their trips are designed to be as authentic as possible - and they place much emphasis on giving back to local communities - so you’ll know your tourism dollars are going toward meaningful causes. Trips with G Adventures are not luxury by any means. But if unique experiences and active days appeal to you over a fluffy pillow then you’re in the right place. Departures are guaranteed once you’ve paid (barring significant weather or safety issues). And they don’t charge single supplements. In short, G Adventures wants you out there with them. You can find something for everyone at G Adventures; whether that’s sailing down the Danube with a glass of wine in hand, or traipsing through the rainforests of Costa Rica. FAQ 1. What kind of luggage should I bring? On many G Adventures trips it’s important to keep in mind that local public transportation is used frequently. Sometimes during commute hours! For your comfort and the comfort of those around you, it’s a good idea to pack light. Some areas will be very crowded, so take pickpocket precautions. 2. Do I need travel insurance? Yes! Travel insurance is required for all travelers on G Adventures trips. If you don’t have your own insurance already, you can purchase a plan for the time you’ll be traveling when you book your G Adventures tour. This is an easy and budget friendly option. If you’re interested in browsing more plans, check out the top travel insurance options » 3. Is airfare included? Unfortunately no. While G Adventures does not include international airfare in their trip prices, they can help you book flights. 4. Is there a single supplement? No. G Adventures does not charge a single supplement for their tours. Single travelers are very welcome. You will share with a same-sex roommate during the tour. If you wish to have a single room, there is usually an option to pay an additional fee for your own room. 5. Is there an age cap? While G Adventures trips tend to appeal largely to younger adventure travelers, all ages are welcome on the majority of trips. The exceptions include on their 18-39 tours, which are specifically designed for only travelers within that range. On most other G Adventures trips, children under 18 must be accompanied by a guardian, and are open to kids 12 and up. Some family friendly trips are open to younger kids. 6. What size are the groups? G Adventures group tours are kept small and intimate. The max is 15, with the average hovering more around 10.

Stride Review Established in 1979, by ROW Adventures began as a whitewater rafting company, which now offers many different kinds of active adventure trips. Their award winning trips have been featured in National Geographic Traveler’s “50 Tours of a Lifetime” and Travel and Leisure has named them one of the “World’s Best Tour Operators.” What Makes ROW Adventures Stand Out? ROW Adventures has grown over it's 30 years as a family owned business to include all sorts of adventure travel offerings. They have a high guest to guide ratio, and specialize in small, customized tours, highlighting history and culture with the help of authentic local connections. Most trips involve some camping, but lodge-based options as well - higher end lodging, motels, and ecolodges are available as well, depending on the location and type of trip. Who Will Enjoy Traveling With ROW Adventures? At first blush, ROW Adventures may seem to only be intended for hard core adventure travelers and adrenaline junkies. In reality, they are less niche focused - striving to create active tours that will appeal to a wide range of travelers. It’s not just about Class 4 rapids! If you are active travel minded, relatively physically fit, and enjoy being outside - you will definitely find a tour to enjoy with ROW Adventures. They cater heavily to families, as well as couples, and even retired-aged adults, provided you don’t require mobility assistance, as these trips usually involve walking, hiking, and being active in general. ROW is particularly well suited to travelers who maybe have hesitated to book active travel tours in the past out of fear that cultural travel experiences will not be included. Rather than focus 100% their time on active travel, ROW itineraries also do an impressive job of incorporating visits to historical attractions and cultural activities. Additionally, it’s not all camping and roughing it - ROW has a very wide range of accommodation styles available from glamping to more traditional hotels. Top Destinations Row offers trips on five continents, including North America, South America, Europe, Africa, and Antarctica. Almost all trips take place on or around water, and many involve kayaking, rafting, or other multisport activities. Among some of the most popular activities offered are sea kayaking in Baja, kayaking with Orcas in British Columbia, and they are the world's only tour operator through which guests can beach camp inside of the Galapagos National Park. ROW Adventures Travel Style While some of the main activities you’ll experience on most ROW trips are of course water based given their name, they also offer safaris, biking, and hiking trips. For those who can’t make up their minds, multisport itineraries are also available. Many trips utilize self-powered means of transportation, either sea kayak or raft. Others are cruise or yacht-based, hiking-based, or are supported by gear boats. All trips are accompanied by an extensive support staff. In fact the impressive guide to guest ratio on ROW Adventures trips is a huge plus for travelers. Accommodations on ROW Adventures trips are quite varied depending on the trip theme, time of year, and budget. You can find everything from luxury yachts in Croatia to camping the stars along the Idaho River. Why Choose a Tour with ROW Adventures? Whether you are a thrill seeker or just dipping your toe in the waters of adventure travel, ROW has the trip for you. With their focus on authentic local experiences, highly qualified guides, and intent to make each trip as special and personalized as possible, they are one of the best choices available for your next adventure trip.

Stride Review Canadian based Indus Travel offers budget friendly tours around the world for everyone from adventurous travelers to families. What Makes Indus Travel Stand Out? Their most popular tour offering is what they term “Unbundled Tours” where you book a group trip - meaning better price, but have the power to then customize your experience along the way. Not everyone may want to see xyz, so their itinerary structure allows everyone to tailor their travel experience. And it helps you choose those experiences, accommodations, meals etc that are within your price range. This does mean you’re dependent on the Indus guides on the ground handling a lot of complicated individual schedules effectively. Indus reviews indicate that this isn’t always a smooth ride, and often confusions arise both on the part of the traveler and the Indus organizers. Indus travel planners are available to help you design an ultra customized journey, using local experts. If you’re looking for something classic and cultural on a budget, they are a great choice. They strive to create balanced itineraries that include classic sightseeing as well as unique and authentic stops. Who Will Enjoy Traveling With Indus? Budget travelers looking for an exciting group trip, but with the flexibility to “choose your own adventure”. Group sizes are kept small and they are popular with couples and small family groups. This style of group travel doesn’t always go smoothly however, so you’ll enjoy the experience more if you have an opened minded attitude and are ok with occasional changes on the ground. Indus crafts travel experiences with cost efficiency in mind, so if you’re expecting something more premium, Indus might not be for you. Top Destinations They organize trips around the world; top custom tour destinations include India, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Maldives, Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, Dubai, Peru. Excursions in destination depend largely on what you and your travel companions decide you want to see and do. Indus Travel Style The Indus travel style is about combining the best of independent travel with packaged travel. They will help arrange flights and accommodations, and your input creates a curated experience for your meals and activities. Hotels are usually in the 3 star range. They use a combination of public transportation such as ferries, trains, and buses, as well as their own coaches. These are comfortable, but usually with few upscale amenities. The max number of people on their tours is 22 according to the website, however be forewarned that several reviews state they had over 30 people on their tour. If group size is a very important factor for you when selecting a tour, you might want to consider looking around before deciding on Indus. Why Choose a Tour With Indus? If you are a budget traveler interested in a cost cutting travel solution, Indus is a great choice. Because they are specifically designed to be budget friendly, this does mean you might have to put up with some quirks along the way, so an easy-going attitude is good to have if choosing Indus. While their sales and customer service teams have some negative reviews, their guides on the ground are generally found to be knowledgeable and helpful.

Stride Review Part of the Globus family of travel brands since 2003, Avalon Waterways has proven to be one of the more innovative of the many river cruise companies now in operation. Its newest “Suite” ships feature “open-air balconies” with floor-to-ceiling windows that open up to serve as indoor-outdoor seating areas, which don’t cut into cabin space as do normal balconies -- meaning you have more room to move around. Bathrooms are also roomy. What Makes Them Stand Out? While global in scale, Avalon Waterways is best known for offering high-end cruises on brand new ships on European rivers. The oldest of the 15 Europe-based ships dates from just 2008, which makes it the youngest fleet of any size on European rivers. Newer ships generally mean that staterooms are larger and amenities are enhanced, and Avalon vessels are no exception. Who Travels With Them? Your fellow passengers are most likely to be age 50-plus English-speakers from North America or the UK. (Crews are all English-speaking). Where Do They Operate? Avalon is well known for their Europe cruises, but they travel all over the world as well.  They have five ships in Asia (sailing the Yangtze, Mekong and Irrawaddy rivers), and one ship each in the United States (the American Queen, which sails the Mississippi) and South America (the Aria, which plies the Amazon). Avalon runs small-ship cruises through the Galapagos Islands as well. Why Travel With Them? Considering the spaciousness and innovativeness of its cabins, the fact that shore excursions and multiple dining options are included in the rates, and a chance to take advantage of some attractive early-booking discounts, Avalon can offer excellent value.

With so many options in price, style of ship, and destination, Rainforest Cruises appeals to any traveler of any age or budget who wants to visit the Amazon or Galapagos by small ship or riverboat.  Where Do They Operate? Primarily on the Amazon in Peru, Brazil, and Ecuador, as well as cruises in the Galapagos Islands. They have a minor presence in Panama and Bolivia.  How Does It Work? They feature four styles of riverboats and cruise ships: comfort, superior, luxury, and charter; suitable family and honeymoon choices are also noted. Comfort is the most basic level, while luxury vessels have the most amenities and largest cabins. You can charter a ship in any category at additional cost. Choose your cruise from among 25 ships in the Amazon region, 12 in the Galapagos and one each in Panama and Bolivia. The vessels range from houseboat-style to sailing ships to sleek yachts.   Why Travel With Them?  Rainforest cruises makes it easy to find the Amazon or Galapagos cruise that’s right for you.  All their ships are pictured on their website and categorized by style. You choose your destination and ship, with their advice if needed. You can also book land tour extensions through them to places like Machu Picchu and Iguazu Falls, or a stay at a jungle lodge.

Stride Review They provide luxury river cruises in exotic and adventurous destinations. What Makes Them Stand Out? While there are many luxury river cruises to classic destinations, Haimark is making waves with their unique touches, small group size, and focus on highlighting the history, culture, and importance of each river they travel on. They don’t operate in Europe, where many luxury river cruise operators already - rather they specialize in Amazon, Mekong, Ganges, and Irrawaddy river cruising. Who Travels With Them? River cruises tend to attract older travelers, but they are open to all ages and type of traveler. Single travelers are welcome for a supplement price. Couples and honeymooners will enjoy their luxury aspects and personal touches throughout the trip. They do indicate that their ships are not wheelchair friendly as they don’t have elevators and often port stops will have hills and longer walking distances. Where Do They Operate?

Stride Review Go Ahead Tours offers guided group tours around the world and on all seven continents. With 25 years of experience, they've built up an impressive array of itineraries and guides.  What Makes Them Stand Out? Groups never number more than 35 and may be as few as 14. Go Ahead calls this their 'Right Size Advantage.' A number of specialty trips include food and wine tours, religious heritage tours, family tours, nature & wildlife tours, and walking tours. They will also take you to special events such as Oktoberfest in Germany, Carnival in Venice, or New England fall foliage tours.  As part of EF, Education First, Go Ahead tours specialize in cultural immersion and making connections, whether with locals or other tour members.  Go Ahead Tours also promises value: if you can find a similar tour at a cheaper price, they'll match it, making it a good choice for budget travelers.   Who Travels With Them? Go Ahead is based in the US, and thus attracts mostly American travelers to their trips. Their age range is varied, but most travelers tend to be middle aged.   Where Do They Operate? Go Ahead offers a wide array of trips to over 100 countries on all 7 continents. Popular destinations include Italy, France, and the United Kingdom. They also offer trips to South America, Asia, and Africa.   Why Travel With Them? Go Ahead is backed by EF, one of the largest travel companies in the US, so has extensive resources at hand when creating their itineraries. They also use a combination of a 'western' tour director plus a selection of local guides, giving the traveler a glimpse into local life while still maintaining quality and comfort.

Stride Review Founded in 1982, Adventure Women is all about encouraging women to travel adventurously. What Makes Them Stand Out? Founded on the mantra that women in all cultures “relish the freedom to experience new things away from limiting, societal expectations”, Adventure Women strives to create exciting tours for women looking to step beyond their comfort zone. They promote a healthy lifestyle, and guests leave their trips feeling more confident, fit, and adventurous than before. Their trips are about seeing the world in a culturally immersive way, staying active, and getting involved with local communities. Who Travels With Them? Trips are women-only, and generally geared toward travels from 35-65. Most are solo, however groups of friends or mothers and daughters/nieces often enjoy their trips as well. Trips have various levels of physical fitness required from Easy to High Energy. Every trip has an element of active travel - such as hiking or river rafting. Where Do They Operate? Their unique and authentic tours go all over the world, from bear watching in Alaska to the remote Baffin Island in the Arctic. It changes year by year where their trips will be focused, but every year the adventure component and focus on local cultural activities remains the same. Why Travel With Them? Adventure Women operates not simply as a tour company, but also as a support group encouraging women to leave the pressures of everyday life behind. It’s a place to find kindred spirits, to relax and enjoy other women’s company, to explore new places and step out of your comfort zone - trying new things with a supportive community around you. They emphasize the necessity of challenging yourself when you travel, being flexible and living in the moment. If you’re looking for a supportive, fun, immersive and active travel experience with a small group of other adventurous women living life on their own terms...this is the travel company for you.
