Once 6 or more people are signed up for any tour we “Guarantee the Departure” At that point, the trip will happen no matter what! You will get emailed an information packet with all the instructions of How much, and When your deposit is due.
After you pay your deposit…there will still be the remaining balance due. You need to have the total paid by 45 days before your trip starts.

We accept payments by mail in the form of check/money order, or over the phone with a major credit/debit card (credit/debit cards require a 2.9% transaction fee).

Nope! Our tours are priced hundreds of dollars less than the other companies that do similar trips. We believe in having the absolute lowest price possible from the very beginning. We have many travelers that book 2 and 3 and even 4 tours with us! Everyone gets the same low price for each trip. You may also notice that other companies jack up their price during peak travel season when demand is high...we do not do that. Everyone who travels with us pays the same price all season long, weather you travel at the slowest time or the busiest time.
