How many hours a day will we be walking or on a bus?
Every day we will be walking a minimum of 2 hours. There will also be uphill streets and stairs. The bus rides vary in time for 20 minutes to 2 hours.
I am traveling alone, will I be the only one?
No, on average we have about half the group that are singles.
Is there a single supplement? And why?
Yes, there is. It's $550 for a private room. The reason we have a single supplement is because some hotels do not offer a single rate. So as a single person you are paying a full rate of the room instead of it being divided by two.
How can I avoid paying the single supplement?
We can match guests with same-sex roommates. We will connect you by email and you can see if you are compatible to share a room.
Is my deposit of 400 refundable?
No, we have limited space and need a commitment from each guest. Please note that the deposit of $400 per guest
is NON-REFUNDABLE except in the case that the trip does not meet the minimum number of participants.
