Frequently asked questions

    • Can I start this tour in Paris instead?

      Absolutely! You can join and end this tour whenever you wish, however, because this is not a hop on/hop off tour, we cannot amend the cost of your booking on this basis. TourRadar is not a tour operator, rather a marketplace for scheduled group tours. Therefore, the itineraries, accommodation and price cannot be altered as this is determined by the tour operator.

    • How do we cross the English Channel?

      Expat Explore alternates between the ferry and Eurotunnel to cross the Channel. The ferry route is either from Dover to Calais or Dover to Dunkirk, and the Eurotunnel route is from Folkestone to Calais. You are not able to choose your travel method as this is determined by the itinerary.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      A single supplement is not mandatory for this tour, as travellers can be roomed with a fellow traveller of the same gender for no additional cost.

If you would prefer a little more privacy, a single supplement can be paid, which will guarantee you your own room for the duration of the tour. Please contact our Travel Experts to arrange this.
