I would prefer to only bring 1-3 lenses with me on this trip because I dont want the extra weight. I was hoping someone could offer their views on what would be best to pack.

I have a Nikon D750.

My lens collection includes:

Tamron FX 90mm macro F2.8

Nikon FX AF-S 50mm 1.8G

Tamron DX 16-300mm F3.5-6.3

Nikon DX kit lens 18-55mm

I also have an Altura 0.43x super wide angle adapter

I was hoping to grab a wide angle lens but time got the best of me and now I wont be able to before the trip.

looking at lenses you own, i would recommend taking your 16-300mm lenses, only, if your happy with its IQ. the less lenses you take with you the better off you would be! but in the mean time, i wouldn't miss an important wide angle lens, such as a 35mm or 24mm lens for the purpose of cutting down on extra weight! i think you know what type of photography you do on your trips so prepare yourself for those circumstances! your 16-300mm covers WA and a decent amount of long reach so you don't have to worry about hauling extra lenses.
