China 2018 - Recently returned from China 2018. It was an awesome trip. However the brochure listed it as a "3" activity level. It in no way was a three. The first day we walked almost 20,000 steps. The rest of the trip was 10,000 to 15,000 steps a day. The majority of those steps each day were on uneven surfaces, lots of steps and extremely steep inclines. Definitely not a "3" trip.

We weren't sure we'd like a group tour but thoroughly enjoyed it.

Took my best friend with several years ago on the Australia/New Zealand trip and it was outstanding! We weren't sure we'd like a group tour (we're both pretty independent travelers), but thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend this particular tour to ANYONE......but the jetlag when you get home takes time for recovery. There's something about leaving NZ at 6pm on Saturday night and arriving in Los Angeles at 11am Saturday morning......the SAME Saturday.....that kind of messes with your head! You get home before you left~lol

Been on Southwest National Parks and Flavors of the South. Both were good except the bus. Three breakdowns on the parks and both tour guides played very loud movies and music when traveling. One lady took out her hearing aides. You can't read, visit or sleep.

    About Mayflower Tours

    Founded in 1979, and located in Illinois. Mayflower prides itself on providing consistent quality trips for great value.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Holidays are designed for travelers looking for the fullest travel experience at a great price value. Since its inception, Mayflower Tours has consistently provided the ultimate touring experience in each destination always focused on the travelers’ budget. Each Mayflower Tour has a professional Tour Manager on board to ensure all details are taken care of.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Mayflower caters to budget travelers of all ages, including families and seniors. Most tours are not physically demanding, though they do offer adventure tours these are mainly in the "soft" adventure range.

    Where Do They Operate?

    When they began, Mayflower offered tours in the United States only, but they quickly expanded. They now operate tours around the world in Europe, Asia, Africa, The Middle East, Australia and New Zealand.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Attentive tour guides, and a strong attention to detail on the ground are part of what sets Mayflower tours apart. They are knowledgeable, understanding and devoted to making your tour relaxing and memorable.

    About Elite Luxury Kenya

    Also called “Kenya Safaris” this company is very locally minded, offering boutique travel experiences including honeymoon, and fully customized travel.

    What Makes Them Stand Out?

    Elite Luxury Kenya provides a travel experience in Kenya that will introduce travelers to another side of the African safari. No frills, yet comfortable, the travel options seem to distinctly be designed to showcase traveling beyond the safari. Though this is not to say safari’s are not a focus. Rather for them, a safari holiday with them means you’ll get a very diverse tour in terms of activities, excursions, and accommodations.

    Who Travels With Them?

    Those seeking an affordable Kenya, Tanzania, and / or Uganda experience. Their tours are private and completely customizable. As a smaller company travelers may find that accommodations are less luxury in feel than an established luxury safari brand, however you will be very comfortable and well taken care of. And if local touches are important to you, these will make your trip especially enjoyable.

    Where Do They Operate?

    Despite what the name suggests, Elite Luxury Kenya also provides tours in Tanzania and Uganda. Part of their mission is to introduce travelers to Kenya and these other destinations beyond the typical safari. To that end you may enjoy a beach holiday, gorilla trek, or hike up Mount Kenya.

    Why Travel With Them?

    Kenya based and small, traveling with them is a way to support local business and in return have a fully local experience. You will get a sense of the “real” Kenya, while also experiencing all the classic safari moments.

    Tours are led by local knowledgeable guides, and your trip is designed by experts for a personalized touch - this helps ensure your trip to Kenya fulfills everything you want to see.
