Questions & Answers

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

This is a great way to get to know your group and enrich your travel experience! 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.

      The accepted currency for the countries visited on this tour are as follows:

      - Austria - Euro (EUR)

    • Should I book pre/post tour accommodation?

      Some passengers prefer to arrive one day earlier and leave one day later, as the tour starts early in the morning and ends in the evening. Expat Explore does not offer pre-trip or post-trip accommodations in London, therefore you would need to arrange accommodation yourself.
