It is our goal to introduce you to the countries visited as they are. Hotels in the countries we visit range from third world impoverished to five-star opulence. We always try to recommend hotels somewhere in the middle. All the hotels we recommend are ones we ourselves would stay in. They are clean, friendly, with private baths or showers and have good locations.
The tour prices given for each itinerary do not include the airfare to the destination country.
Tour documents, if required, are not issued until all services have been paid in full. These documents are sent to you no later than 14 days prior to departure. If you are departing home earlier, please notify us in order to make arrangements. There is a $50.00 fee for tour documents processed earlier than 14 days prior to departure.

All hotel accommodations; meals; ground transfers; transportation within the programs; excursions with an English-speaking tour guide; baggage handling upon arrival and departure; and an invitation letter for the tourist visa, if required, are included in the tour.

We make every effort to place you with a same gender roommate to share the double occupancy cost upon your request. If for some reason there is no one for you to share with, you will be responsible for paying the single supplement fee for the guided tour you have chosen.
