Frequently Asked Questions

    • Do you you provide Visa assistance?

      TourRadar is 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.

    • Any surcharge for solo traveler wanting single room instead of shared?

      The single supplement is completely optional. You are not required to pay a single supplement to join the tour.
