Tour FAQ

Can I get a refund if I cancel the tour?

The refund policy for canceling a tour can vary depending on the tour company, the terms and conditions you agreed to when booking the tour, and the circumstances surrounding your cancellation. It’s best to refer to our terms and conditions page or contact us to inquire about the refund policy for cancellations.

Can I change the travel date?

In general, it is often possible to change the travel date, but it may be subject to certain conditions and fees. Airlines, for instance, typically offer options to change flight dates, but they may charge a change fee and any difference in fare. It’s important to review the terms and conditions of your ticket or booking and the policies of the airline or travel agency you booked to understand the options available to you.

Similarly, hotels and other accommodations may have different policies regarding date changes. Some may allow free or low-cost changes if made within a certain time frame, while others may have more restrictive policies or charge a fee for modifications.

To determine whether you can change the travel date and the associated costs or requirements, I recommend contacting the airline, hotel, or travel agency you booked with. They will be able to provide you with accurate and up-to-date information based on your circumstances.

Remember, it’s always a good idea to review the cancellation and change policies before making any travel arrangements to understand your options in case of unforeseen circumstances or changes to your plans.

Do I need to apply visa?

Travelers often must obtain a visa before entering a foreign country. A visa is an official document issued by the destination government that permits you to enter and stay for a certain period. Some countries have visa waiver agreements with certain nationalities, allowing visitors to enter without a visa for a specified period. However, this exemption usually has limitations, such as the purpose of travel or the length of stay.

It is important to note that visa requirements can change, so checking for updates before making any travel arrangements is recommended. Allow enough time for the visa to be processed, as it can sometimes take several weeks or even months. You can contact us to help you obtain the visa.

How do I pay for the tour?

To book a tour with us, we require that it be paid at the time of booking. This is the only guarantee for you to book the tour.

Daily excursions:
You can also pay for the tour with cash at the beginning of the tour.

Multi-day trips:

Is gratuity included in the price?

Gratuity is not included in any of our packages and vacations and is left to the travelers’ discretion. While it is not obligatory, it holds significant importance to the individuals who provide you with care and services during your travels.
