      Will I need visas?

      Visa requirements vary for different nationalities depending on the countries you will be visiting. We provide a rough guide to worldwide visas on our website but this is by no means definitive and you should either use a visa service or contact each country’s consulate or embassy for the latest information, well in advance of travel. Please note that obtaining the necessary visas is your responsibility and if you don’t have the correct visa for your destination(s) you may miss out on all or part of your tour.

      We are two ladies who would like a room of our own. Do you have a single supplement on your tours in Japan?

      The single supplement is completely optional. You are not required to pay a single supplement to join the tour. The tour price advertised is based on a twin share basis, if you are a single traveller you will be roomed with a passenger of the same gender. The single supplement optional cost is if you would like your own room on the tour.

      What are people saying about TourRadar?

      • Robert19th January 2018
        The website was easy to navigate and the variety in tours was extensive. There was something for everyone of any age. I particularly liked the amount of details supplied for each tour that explained whether or not that tour was suitable for certain ages and set out clearly what to expect and what and what is not included. The booking process was simple and easy to follow making the overall experience a delight.
