    Joined a group in process. Made great connections with others joining at same time, but existing group (and one of the guides) was very tight knit. Overall, a great experience and adventure, and I would highly recommend Dragoman tours and plan to... Show more

FAQs

  • What is the kitty payment?

    Dragoman's Kitty for Overland Cartagena and Cuzco (from Cuzco to Cartagena) is a group fund for this tour. The group fund pays for camping, hotels, food while camping, activities the group does as a whole (based on the itinerary mentioned above and in the brochure).

    The Kitty allows the group to be flexible as the hotels and campsites are not pre booked and booked by the crew while travelling which makes the whole itinerary more adabtable than the traditional tours. Sometimes you can stay an extra night at one location due to a special activity happening at the location, based on the groups wishes. All of these costs are paid at cost price and Dragoman makes no money out of it. Therefore, if money is left over in the Kitty after the tour, it will be paid back to the group members.
