Frequently Asked Questions

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour ends at approximately 9 pm at Generator Hostel in London depending on traffic conditions.

Please be aware that the drop-off point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of this tour generally starts from Generator Hostel in London at 6 am. Due to the early start, we recommend arriving at least one day prior to the tour, so you have time to settle in and make sure you do not miss the departure! Please be aware the starting point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Unfortunately, airport transfers are not available for this tour and you will, therefore, have to make your own way from and to the airport.

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