Important Travel recommendations: 

  • When you purchase your tickets we strongly recommend you to purchase extra travel and medical insurance, as life has always a way of throwing unexpected things at us, insurance is a way of dealing with some of those unexpected circumstances, they are generally not very expensive.
  • Please note that we tried to keep the pricing of the tour affordable, one of the ways we accomplished that was by reserving 4 star hotels rather than 5 star , the chain of hotels chosen has many modern facilities at their disposal and provide a very clean, comfortable and reliable stay, this also means that perhaps the location of the hotel may not be at the center of town, it is nevertheless quite easy to either take a bike ride; available for rent at very inexpensive prices; into town or by taxi, also available in most of the locations where there will be a scheduled stay.
  • Transportation will be provided on a bus with modern facilities.
  • It is your responsibility to be on time every day at the designated location for departure.
  • Carry with you at all times Passport, Money and tickets
  • Procure extra travel and medical Insurance
  • If you have any medical needs, please remember to pack the necessary supplies
