    • What is the age range?

      The age range for this tour is from 18 to 39 years old. This means that children under the age of 18 are not eligible to participate in this tour due to the nature of the tour and the included activities.

It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.
