    ************* IMPORTANT NOTIFICATIONS *************

    Our trips are for all ages

    Our tours are perfectly designed for all ages. However, they are often fast-paced, and sometimes tiring, packed with adventure, new experiences and feel-good moments. Therefore, we ask that anyone wanting to travel with us carefully consider whether any PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS prevent you from fully enjoying our trips.

     

    Traveling with children: Due to the fast-paced nature of our group tours, all children require adult supervision. Some of our more active excursions may not be suitable for children under the age of 8.

     

    Embrace the nature of Group Travel

    To get the most out of your tour, pack a positive attitude and an open mind. These are most certainly valuable when travelling in a group. Despite the very best intentions and planning, things can and do go wrong and occasionally we encounter problems beyond our control, such as delayed public transport and adverse weather conditions. In such situations we ask for your patience and we will endeavor to keep as close to our scheduled itinerary as possible.
