PRICES

We strive to keep the prices on reasonable and competitive level. Our group tours are priced based on double occupancy and a stated minimum number of clients (usually two or four people) yet are guaranteed to operate with a minimum of two people. Price does not include: visa fees, any items of a personal nature, additional expenses resulting from the delay or extension of a trip due to weather, political disputes, sickness or other causes beyond our reasonable control. Tipping your driver and guide at the end of the trip is normal, but entirely at your discretion. If you are traveling solo and would like to share accommodations, we will match you with a roommate of the same gender if one is available. If you prefer a private room, a private room upgrade fee is charged.

Should adjustments be necesary we do our best to provide substitutions that are similar to the original itinerary.
