Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

  • December 1, 2016

    Can we opt for hotels instead of hostels for this tour?

    These tours are sold as a package and therefore unable to be altered.

  • December 4, 2015

    I was wondering who can advise on the best way to book the flight in a way that would allow me to arrive on time and leave on time? With airport pickup included.

    I've looked at the trip itinerary and they suggest arriving before 6pm on the start day of the tour and can depart anytime on the last day. Airport transfer can be arrange through the tour operator and added to your booking but may require an additional cost.
    TourRadar specializes in giving you the best tours from around the world. The tours we offer do not include airfare and we do not book or advise on airfare. You will be responsible for booking airfare to meet with the group at the starting city. We do not recommend booking airfare, before confirming your tour.
