Trip Type Trip Type Classic 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 Guided Experiences 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 Ocean 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 Tour 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.
Independent Package 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 Ocean 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.

Tour Styles

The China sampler was a wonderful trip. We had never ventured to the orient and the China Sampler was a good introduction to Chinese culture. We liked all the places we visited in Beijing, Xian, Shanghai,and Sozhou. The hotels were very nice and comfortable. Out guides Hou and Lilly were very knowledgeable and spoke perfect English. All the extra excursions were well worth the time and expense. I would definitely recommend the tour to anyone.

You created a very flexible itinerary which is just what we wanted. We used it as a broad framework for our trip and it all worked out quite well. Hotels were chosen well, well worth the costs and good locations. Our guide Cuong was excellent in every way. Highly recommend him for returning veterans. Great stories and understanding of what it was like because he was there.

My daughter and I had a great 4 days of adventure, cycling from Villavociosa to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Xavier did a great job handling two very different riders! My daughter, a young experienced athlete and myself a cycling novice. The hotels and locations he selected were wonderful! Xavier customized our trip to our needs.I would truly recommend BikeBasque to anyone wanting to bike in Europe. I hope to be back.

This trip was so much fun. Kayaking, paddle boarding, fishing and lots of snorkeling. Not to mention tubing thru a cave in the dark! A great trip with variety of activities. On top of this was great food - don't worry about bring snack food, you will not need it. Wish my whole family could have joined us.

Snorkeling the patch reefs out at Glover's Reef

What would be your advice to potential travelers?:
