We use private cars and vans.
Tour rates do not include flights. We find that it is usually less expensive for travelers to book these separately and this also allows you the flexibility to choose the schedule and routing that is most convenient for you. Alternatively, we can help you arrange these flights with a travel agent from the US.
We’ll arrange an airport transfer for you. Some travelers prefer the convenience of having someone waiting for them at the airport when they arrive, especially after an exhausting flight.
Tips are not required on any of our tours. However, it is customary in Some countries like Argentina or Chile to offer a small tip for exceptional service. Tipping amounts vary widely. Some travelers opt to bring small gifts from their home to give to service providers along the way.
All visitors must have a valid passport to enter in most of the destinations. Some countries also ask a proof of onward passage. Entry requirements change with surprising frequency. It is each traveler's responsibility to check with the consulate for the most up-to-date visa information.
We will try our very hardest to accommodate all dietary requirements but in some out-of-the-way places it can be very difficult to guarantee. We will let you know if there are places on your itinerary where this is the case. Please let us know at the time of booking of any food requirements or allergies and we’ll pass the information onto your leader. It is also a great idea to bring a card with your dietary requirements written in the local language for those times you are eating away from the group.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s website provides recommended and/or required vaccinations for each country. You can go to this link to check your destination's requirements: https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/
We create customized itineraries to suit our guests’ requirements. We can organize everything from the perfect accommodation to private transfers by air or land, and an endless range of add-on experiences.
