And naturally, Stride can help you find the right path.

Travel Style

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.

Itinerary Focus

Lodging Level Lodging Level Camping Typically involves most nights sleeping in tents (sometimes permanent tented sites) or in rustic cabins and lodges.
Basic - 2 star You'll stay in no-frills, but clean and comfortable, hotels or guesthouses. A 'Basic' trip might also involve a few nights of camping.
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.
Luxury - 5 star The highest level of comfort and service. All accomodations are in four or five star hotels, boutique lodges or high-end homestays.

We have been fortunate to travel many places around the world, but Tibet counts as one of the most touching, authentic, and moving travel experiences that we've had.

Our family of four (including two children, ages 9 & 12) booked a 8 day tour which included Lhasa and several other cities and major sights on a round trip to Everest Base Camp. Great Tibet Tour worked with us on our itinerary and provided us options that worked for children.

Nature Tours and Travel Guide

Nature Attractions & Landmarks Guide

If you like being outdoors -- whether it's hiking in the hills among spring wildflowers, camping by a mountain lake, listening to the sounds of monkeys howling in the jungle, or taking a hike in the desert at sunrise -- guided tours are a great way to get you there, give you support as needed, and deepen your understanding of what you're seeing and hearing in the natural world. And naturally, Stride can help you find the right path.

The Americas

North America has an incredibly diverse landscape, from mountains to deserts, waterfalls to canyons. Head north to Canada to see the mysterious-looking Spotted Lake. Banff National Park has breathtaking mountains as a backdrop to one of the bluest lakes you've ever seen. The United States also has its share of beauty, with multiple national and state parks well worth visiting. The Grand Canyon, for example, is one of the seven natural wonders of the world. 

South America is rich in nature with rainforests and waterfalls. Get immersed in the lush landscape while keeping your eye out for wildlife. Take a cruise down to Antarctica to see massive icebergs and giant whales passing by. Hike the mountains of Santiago and watch the marvelous sunset at night. There are so many options to pick from for your next nature trip!

Africa

Africa is the second largest continent and has so much to see. If you want to go on a safari, pick one in east or south Africa to see the most animals. Looking for hotter weather? Head north to see the stunning Sahara Desert. Pick a tour that includes Madagascar to see lemurs swinging from the trees!

Asia

Asia is the largest continent and has a wide variety of countries. Enjoy the warm beaches of the Philippines. Take a river cruise in Cambodia. Hike the Himalayan mountains. The possibilities are endless for your next adventure here.
