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. These tours often utilize comfortable large coaches for transport.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 an intimate setting this is a good choice.River Cruise River cruises are usually "Premium" or "Luxury". The vessel is smaller than most ocean cruisers, and narrower, restricting some types of available amenties. Passenger counts can vary from 10 to 500. One of the biggest advantages of a river cruise is the ability to dock at smaller ports inside major cities and local villages allowing for active day excursions. Small Ship Cruise Small ship cruises usually have a max passenger count of 500 and are often much smaller. Which is still an intimate size when compared to a large cruise ship. These vessels feature large staterooms, often provide butler service, and more amenities on board than a river cruise. Multiple restaurant and bar choices, and shopping are provided, but on a smaller scale than a large ocean cruise ship.Private Guided Private guided tours are for you and your travel companions to enjoy the undivided attention of the 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 though expect to pay a bit more for the extra service.Self-guided / Independent Tour Like freedom and privacy but want someone to take care of the logistics? Operators plan your itinerary and arrange all the logistics including lodging, local activities, and transportantion. However, you have the flexibility of a solo travel experience with no other group members or deermine to dictate how you actually spend your time.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 options, and shopping options. Large ships can carry thousands of passengers. Note they often stop at fewer ports and have less time available for shore excursions.
