  • March 1, 2017

    Do you accommodate to single travelers?

    The tour operator does accommodate single travellers.

    You are more than welcome to join the group as a single traveller with sole use of your own room. Single rooms in European hotels can have one single bed, although in some hotels single travellers will have a double room for their own use. The single supplement is very reasonable.
