Please let us know as soon as soon as you see the maximum number of participants being surpassed. Start a “waiting list” and we will reach out to the necessary vendors to confirm availability in order to ensure everyone that wants to go on the trip can be accommodated.

No reason to be alarmed, for we expect no problems, but cannot guarantee until we have confirmed availability for the additional trip participants with all of our vendors.

Final numbers must be guaranteed 60 days prior to departure via your Final Participant Guarantee Form and Room List.

No, for once contracted, our packages are priced, marketed and sold as packages; therefore, individual inclusions cannot be deleted.

If you would prefer to provide additional gratuity for exemplary service, you are welcome to do so and this can be paid directly to the driver at the conclusion of your trip.

Driver shortages and fuel costs have increased prices for busses and flights. We are also seeing a pattern of charter deposits being required to make the charter reservation and are sometimes nonrefundable. Read more on the changes we’ve seen in our blog post, The New Reality.
