TOUR GRADE

EASY CULTURAL TOURING: Most of this tour involves overland travel in comfortable vehicles. Some of the roads are poorly maintained and sections will have potholes. Be prepared for some early mornings. 

 

TRAVEL INSURANCE

Insurance is essential and is a condition of booking that you have adequate travel insurance cover.  It is very important that you obtain insurance cover against the usual risks associated with travel, from the time of booking your holiday until the time you return home. Please ensure that your insurance provides adequate protection against the two major concerns: medical/repatriation expenses while abroad and cancellation/curtailment charges in the event that you, a travelling companion or a close relative fall ill either before or during the tour. For trekking holidays your travel insurance must contain evidence of satisfactory cover for repatriation and helicopter rescue.

 

We require confirmation of your insurance, the policy number and 24-hour emergency telephone number who ever you take insurance with.
