    • What is the age range?

      The age range for this tour is 8 - 99 years old. This means that infants and children under the age of 8 are not eligible to participate in this tour.

    • 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

    • 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 there any further costs involved like excursions and entry fees?

      With regards to excursions on tour, anything that is in capitals in the itinerary such as the Gothic Cathedral is included, so if you're wanting to do excursions/visits not in written in capitals there would be an extra fee at the time.

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

      A single supplement is available for this tour at an additional cost to secure a private room for the duration of the tour. However, the single supplement is completely optional and if you don't mind sharing, you will be roomed with a fellow traveller of the same gender.
