We designed the tours carefully and included the suitable routes with the best night stays and highlights. However, sometimes deviation from the planned itinerary may occur because of unforeseen situations and inevitable circumstances such as weather conditions, seasonal changes or other factors may influence the time table.
We choose three star standard hotels which are cozy, safe and easily accessible and is based on twin share. Depending on your itinerary, you may stay in guest house, traditional style hotels or local house or hut/camp. In rural areas and villages you may share the room with other passengers (maximum 5 passengers) from the same sex depending on the room capacity.
Almost all our group tours are 100% guaranteed to departure, so once you’ve booked and paid your deposit, you are going! A few of tours will be guaranteed as soon as they reach breaking point, 4-6 passengers.
Group tour size
Group sizes vary on some specific tours depending on the destination but usually the maximum group size is 12 persons on most tours.
We recommend you to bring your own sleeping bag for camping based tours. According to our experience, it is recommended to have a ‘three season’ sleeping bag for the summer months and a ‘four season’ bag during the rest of the year especially in mountainous and desert areas.
We will use a comfortable private vehicle according to the number of passengers and the trip routes. The vehicles are equipped with air conditioner. Some tours will use a combination of different transport options such as private air-conditioned coaches, private vehicles, 4x4, public bus or mules.
It is customary to tip tour leaders, local guides, bell boys, waiters and the drivers but entirely optional.
