    • Is there a hotel list available?

      Unfortunately, Expat Explore does not release the exact list of hotels that will be used on tour until 5 days prior to the departure.

      This is a list of hotels that they typically stay at, but please be advised that they are subject to change:

      Hopefully, this list will give you a better idea of what kind of accommodation you can expect while on tour.

      Expat Explore has searched and invested in excellent budget accommodation either located in cities or well placed with good public transport connections. They use mostly 3-star hotels for their different tours. On this tour, you will stay in twin share rooms and if you are a single traveller, you will be roomed with a fellow traveller of the same gender or you have the option to book a single room at an additional price.

    • Is there a price reduction available for minors?

      As Expat Explore already is an 'economical' tour option, they do not offer price reductions for children.

    • Is a triple share option available?

      Unfortunately, it cannot be confirmed in advance, however, should you not be able to get a triple room we will arrange a joining room in that case or the third person will be roomed with another passenger of the same gender.
      The other option is to pay a single supplement which will guarantee that the third traveller has a private room for the duration of the tour.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • What's the average age of travelling guests?

      The majority of travellers on this trip are in their 40s and 50s.

    • Is this tour by bus or by train?

      This tour is by bus. The bus you'll be travelling on is a modern air-conditioned coach with reclining seats, TV for showing DVDs, and a toilet. With regards to toilet access during daily tours, it will depend on where you are but there will most likely be toilets available at nearby restaurants, cafes or parks.

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

      A single supplement is available on this tour but 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 additional cost is if you would like your own room on the tour.
