Should I protect my trip with travel insurance?

This is a personal decision, however we recommend buying travel insurance. It’s more than lost luggage or flight delays, but it’s also protection in case you have to cancel your trip before departure due to an emergency. Always read your policy wording to review your specific coverage and to make sure that the policy is right for you.

What type of vehicles do you use?
Our primary vehicle is newer model Mercedes Sprinter with leather seats, high ceilings, and large picture windows. For larger groups we use various makes and sizes of luxury buses.

Are there any additional fees?
There is an online booking fee. Please To avoid this fee, you may fill out a credit card authorization form. Taxes and fuel surcharges are included. Gratuity for the host and driver is at your discretion.

 Are gratuities included?
No. Customers may provide gratuity at their discretion to their host and driver at the end of their tour as a personal “thank you” for a job well done.
