Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour ends at approximately 9 pm at Generator Hostel in London depending on traffic conditions, however, you also have the option to finish the tour at 8 am in Amsterdam, instead of taking the complimentary return transfer to London. Please be aware that the drop-off point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of this tour generally starts from Generator Hostel in London at 6 am. Due to the early start, we recommend arriving at least one day prior to the tour, so you have time to settle in and make sure you do not miss the departure! You also have the option to meet up with your group at approximately 5 pm in Paris on the first day of the tour if you wish. Please be aware the starting point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Unfortunately, airport transfers are not available for this tour and you will, therefore, have to make your own way from and to the airport.
