    • What is the age range?

      The age range of the passengers that are usually on the tour is from 8 to 80 years old. However, due to the style of the tour, it is not suitable for children or infants under the age of 8.

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

      If you are travelling alone on this tour, a mandatory single supplement will be added to the tour price. You can see the additional surcharge on the 'Book Now' page.

    • 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.

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner - https://flights.tourradar.com

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      Usually, hotel lists are not confirmed until 4-6 weeks before departure, however, this is a list of hotels that Globus typically stay at on this tour. Please be advised that they are subject to change:

      Hilton Dublin Kilmainham
      Temple Gate Hotel
      Killarney Towers Hotel
      Granville Hotel
      The Gibson

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

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of the tour is an arrivals day, so you can choose to arrive at Hilton Dublin Kilmainham at any time. However you do have the opportunity to meet your Tour Director and travelling companions at 3 pm before a driving tour of the city and an included welcome dinner at your hotel, so we recommend you to arrive beforehand to take advantage of this inclusion.

      Be aware that the meeting hotel is subject to change until your final documents are released.
