PRICES All "Land prices" shown on the reservation form are based on double occupancy. Single supplements are charged to cover our additional costs for single occupancy rooms. Payments by U.S.-based MasterCard and VISA are accepted, with a surcharge of 1.5% for the former, and 2% for the latter. The surcharge for non-US-based MasterCard and VISA is 3%.

GROUP SIZE Groups are limited to 16–18 participants, as specified on each tour page. Most of our tours will operate with as few as 5 or 6 members. Some tours may already be sold out by the time this catalog goes to press. To avoid disappointment, we urge you to book well in advance.

CANCELLATIONS & REFUNDS A full refund minus $500/person administrative charge will be made where written notice of cancellation is received more than 90 days prior to departure. Cancellations received 60-90 days prior to departure will incur a cancellation fee of 50% of the total tour price. A cancellation fee of 100% of the total tour price will apply where notice of cancellation is received less than 60 days prior to departure. Once a tour has commenced there can be no refunds on unused portions. We strongly recommend that you take out trip cancellation insurance, available through our office.

To receive free arrival and departure transfers, certain restrictions apply. It is essential that you check with our office before booking airline tickets.
