      Je préfère les tours où toutes les activités sont inclues dans le tarif de départ. Comme Gate 1. Et si le client le désire ou s’il est fatigué il a l’option de ne pas participer.

      49 passengers ---- too many ----like herding cattle. Listening to a guide through a palace or etc.----they may be a room ahead so the commentary did not always "fit". It really was a wine and food tour which I did not sign up for. The options were... Show more

      • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

        Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

      • 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
