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.

I was pleasantly surprised that in 9 days we fit in a lot of sightseeing in 4 countries. I ususally plan my own trips with a full itinerary but this was the first tour we've taken where I left the planning to the Gate 1. It did not disappoint. I feel like we saw everything that I would have planned for us to do on our own. I don't feel like I have to return to any location to see things we missed. Also the other people on the tour were fun and we all got along well even with the wide age ranges. I highly recommend this tour and Gate 1.

Beer steins, cabarets, sex shops, cows on mountains. This is what people who live in Europe see everyday. Exploring all these cultures in one trip is why I enjoyed our tour so much (aside from our outstanding tour director Brek and amazing driver Ivan). It is a glimpse, so you dont get much time in Amsterdam. Maybe 2.5 hours so I would suggest planning ahead for that. My favorite optionals were the local Switzerland guided horse and carriage tour, and the mount pilatus excursion. Both of which were in Switzerland (I'm Italian and just found Switzerland is my favorite country in Europe). The Caberet optional in paris is expensive, but the show is PERFECT. The Rhine river cruise optional allows you to see almost every important monument in paris while sitting down which is awesome considering it is only a glimpse. Our tour director Brek knew exactly where to stop and at what times it would be best to do so. As soon as we walked off the tour bus to stop and have a look at the Eiffel Tower it literally sparkled. He timed it that way. Anyways, I would take this tour if you're looking for an affordable, stress free, and under 10 day tour.

The Queensway apartment was a wonderful spot to spend a week in London. The logistics for local transportation were great. The apartment was soooo comfortable and had great character. You would be hard pressed to have an experience as satisfying in a hotel. We especially liked eating in the ethnic restaurants on Queensway, the paintings at the National Gallery and Tate Modern, and our private tour of the Middle Temple with Ben.

England Tours and Travel Guide

England Attractions & Landmarks Guide

The land of Shakespeare, Stonehenge, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Queens and Kings, and of course Harry Potter, England has much to offer travelers to its shores. A country in the United Kingdom, England is a popular destination for music lovers, theater lovers, and history lovers.

Literary Legacy

While the wider UK has much claim in the literary world, England has produced perhaps the most recognizable list. From Shakespeare to Jane Austen, it’s a literature enthusiasts dreamland, and several tours that visit England include a comprehensive look at famous literary sites. 

You can visit Shakespeare’s house, the Globe Theater, Charles Dickens home, and even the pub where JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis use to meet for a pint and lively conversation.

Rolling Countryside

While it might seem cliche, England really does have a fair share of idyllic countryside. Rolling green hills, quaint cottages, lakes, ponds, and country roads are most quintessential in Kent, the Cotswolds, and the Lake District. These areas showcase a unique beauty, and many tours will explore them as a part of their itinerary.

A more wild version can be found in the far north of England, in Yorkshire, the famous home of the Brontes who spend their youth exploring the moors surrounding their fathers Parish. Down in the south of England you’ll find the mysterious Stonehenge site, surrounded by more misty, expansive moorland.

The Downton Abbey Phenomenon

While many films and novels have put England on the map, the success of Downton Abbey has drawn a new, larger audience to the country. The show has also shed a light on the beautiful stately homes, mansions, and castles so admired by visitors. These houses survive primarily on tourism and Downton has boosted their popularity in a wonderful way. Try a Downton Abbey Tour to see them and other filming locations from the show.
