    Trip was almost exactly as advertised, with no surprises. So we got exactly what we have shopped for. Everything was very clearly and openly communicated. That said, our guide went above and beyond to make the experience even better.

Questions & Answers

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

    • Can you help us with our visas if needed?

      Unfortunately we are unable to give visa advice due to the vast number of nationalities which our customers represent. Some nationalities can travel freely over borders, where others require advance permission to enter. There are also changes in requirements from time to time. We recommend checking your local embassy or consulate's website for the latest up to date information.

    • What is the average group size of this tour?

      The expected group size for this tour is 1 - 16 people.

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

      Solo travellers do not have to pay a single supplement as this is a group trip designed for shared accommodation. You will be paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with travellers of the same sex, which 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 subject to availability for all nights excluding Day 2 and 3. Please contact our Travel Experts for more information.
