Frequently Asked Questions

    • Is the flight included?

      We specialise in giving you the best tours from around the world, however the tours we offer do not include airfare and we do not book or advise on airfare. You will be responsible for booking your flights to meet with the group at the starting city. We do not recommend booking airfare before confirming your tour.

    • How will the accommodation be for a group of 3 travelers?

      It's entirely up to you. We can put in a request for a tripple room if you'd prefer to be in the same room. Otherwise, one of you can share with another traveler of the same gender. The other option is to pay a single supplement upgrade for one person so that she can have her own room instead.

    • Between London Gatwick and London Heathrow airports, which will be better for the tour?

      All London airports are well connected to the city, Heathrow and Gatwick in particular (though for a transfer, Gatwick is more expensive as it is further out). We would recommend you base your decision on the flight that is cheaper and timed better for your comfort.

    • Between London Gatwick and London Heathrow airports, which would be better for the tour?

      All of London airports are well connected to the city, London and Gatwick in particular.

    • What is the transportation?

      Transportation is via coach. Going from London to Paris, you will drive to the port, take the ferry, and then get back on the coach to continue on through mainland Europe.
