^ Tipping Fund, day 1
On day one of the tour a local payment of USD65 per person is payable to your tour director. This is used to tip hotel service personnel, the tour bus driver and other service personnel assisting with the tour group services.

Tipping your local Tour Director
Tipping your tour director is customary for good service. The tip for your tour director is not included with the tipping fund.  As a guide, a tip of USD3-4 per person, per day is suggested. On the final day of the tour, we recommend handing over your tip in an envelope to your tour director. 

Only applies if you are not travelling on the nominated group flight booked with us as part of your package.


If you have not booked your flight with us as part of your package but are travelling on the same flight as our nominated group flight you can opt to join our group transfer for a small service fee.

ALL OTHER FLIGHTS (not group flight)

Roommate matching is optional.

On your request and subject to availability, we will match you with another group member (same gender) so that you can share a room and take advantage of the twin share price.

Reduced Single Supplement:
If we are not able to offer you a roommate match, a 'Reduced Single Supplement' price will be offered. This represents a $200 saving on the standard single supplement price. Alternatively, you have the option to decline and receive a full refund of your tour deposit.

If you are not prepared to pay for a Reduced Single Supplement we recommend you should not pay for the airfare until you have a guaranteed roommate match and this is advised by us in writing.

This supplement becomes due after we finalise the group and before departure.  The Reduced Single Supplement offer only applies to bookings secured with a deposit by July 14 2017.

Please note: if a roommate becomes available after receiving advice of a Reduce Single Supplement rate, your booking automatically reverts to the twin share price and any monies paid for the Reduced Single Supplement will be refunded.
