Short Description

Located more than 2,300 miles off Chile's coast, remote Easter Island, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is inhabited by the ancestors of a sophisticated society that developed a millennium ago, and then disappeared, leaving an archaeological legacy of ancient stone villages, open-air sanctuaries and giant statues called Moai. Legend shrouds its mysterious megaliths called Moai, carved by the Rapa Nui people. Why these Moai were created and how they were moved to their present sites--as well as the mythology of the Rapa Nui culture--intrigues historians and anthropologists to this day. Together, these incredible destinations encompass the mystery, power and natural splendor that creates a singular, extraordinary travel experience. Easter Island has captivated the imagination of explorers for centuries.

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.
