Questions & Answers
Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.
Is there a hotel list available?
The tour operator has advised that they do not have a hotel list available for this tour, as all accommodations are subject to change until 4-6 weeks before the departure date. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details. That being said, on this tour you will be staying 5 nights in hotels and you will be camping for 16 nights (with facilities). Two examples of hotels that they generally stay at on this tour are Hilton Newark Airport and The Red Roof Inn - hopefully, this can give you an idea of the kind of accommodation you can expect on tour.
When and where does the tour end?
What time the tour finishes depends on each group, however, the tour operator does not recommend flying out until after 9 pm on the last day of the tour. A free shuttle bus from The Red Roof Inn at San Francisco Airport to the airport is included in this tour, so you can depart whenever it fits your schedule. It's time to say farewell to your Travel Director and new-found friends as your memorable holiday comes to an end. Please be aware the hotel is subject to change until your final documents are released.
When and where does the tour start?
This tour generally starts from Hilton Newark Airport in New York (Newark) and as the first day is just an arrivals day you can arrive at any time. After check-in, you can relax and unwind, before meeting with your Travel Director and fellow travellers at 6 pm. If you arrive into the city a couple of days early, you can consider doing a one-day sightseeing tour of New York. Please be aware the meeting point is subject to change until your final documents are released.
