FIND OUT THE ANSWERS TO SOME OF OUR MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
When you register for a trip, you will receive a detailed packing list to ensure you have everything you need. Luggage storage options are available for most of our trips in the event there are items you will not need while on our tour, but that you still want to have before/after the tour.
Our trips have three difficulty ratings: easy, moderate, and challenging. Easy trips are less physically strenuous, the activities are shorter and more leisure based, and there are alternatives if you do not want to do every activity. Moderate trips involve considerable physical activity, but are still very manageable for anyone in decent physical shape. Options are available to make these tours less physically challenging. For challenging trips, physical activity such as hiking will be the primary focus of the day and the difficulty is more dependent on the weather. Participants should be in good physical shape and training for the trip is recommended. A more detailed description is available on the individual trip pages.
Our groups are limited to a maximum of just 8 participants on our Highlights tours and only 12 participants on our Biking and Hiking trips. These are some of the smallest group sizes in the industry, enabling us to give you the best possible experience. With a smaller group comes better and more individualized attention, more camaraderie among the travelers, greater flexibility with the itinerary, and a more authentic, less touristy trip.
The minimum recommended age for participation in one of our standard trips is 13 and there is no upper age limit. Ability is more important than age, and some trips are more conducive than others to younger/older participants; contact us if you have any concerns. If you would like a trip with younger children, consider planning a custom trip.
All of our leaders have traveled extensively and have lots of experience leading groups on adventure trips all over the world. Our leaders have also undergone extensive training in group dynamics, risk management, and wilderness and remote first aid.
We prefer that everyone goes on the trip in its entirety in order to get the best possible experience, however some trips do have the ability to join the group late or leave early. Contact us for details for the trip you are interested in.
Visas are not required for most nationalities for the countries where our trips operate. A passport is needed for international travel, and it is recommended to have your passport valid for at least 6 months beyond the expected return date.
