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.

My wife first used them 2 years ago when she went to India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka solo. When we were planning our trip to Myanmar we wanted it to be perfect. we reached out to John and he organized an amazing private tour of Myanmar: hitting all of the sites, allowing enuough down time, meeting the locals, indulging in the food, and having very knowledgable tour guides take us around and make sure we were safe and having a blast. throughout the whole process John was there to make sure everything was going well. big shout out to our most excellent tour guides: YuYu in Mandalay, TinTin in Yangon, and Hahn in Bagan. we will defonetly use Odynovo again and be back in Myanmar soon.

Visiting Marche was a pleasant surprise for us. We were on a longer trip and decided to do the Taste of Italy for 5 days to visit a new area. What we most enjoyed about our visit was the city of Ascoli Piceno with its beautiful medieval center. In fact, we walked from our hotel after dinner every evening and explored the Roman amphitheater. A very different feel overall compared to the busy roads of the major cities. Our cooking class was exquisite and we were even given some home made fig jam to bring back to Seattle. Forget Tuscany next time, this is the real deal !! Thank you for showing us around, Ashley

Did a long break trip (or fall break) with Euroadventures on their "Best of the East" adventure. I had always wanted to travel to the destinations (especially Prague, Krakow & Budapest) and the trip and organization did not disappoint. Everything really was top notch from the itinerary and pace of the trip to the accommodations to the trip leader. By the end of the trip our group went from strangers (there were some traveling together as groups of friends) to all great friends. Highly recommend this trip, especially for those looking for something slightly off the beaten path (especially Krakow) and this company.
