Our packages and customized tours do not include the international airfare except the flights included in our multi-country combined tours.

We always try to find the kind of places in which we ourselves would choose to stay. Our hotels are chosen carefully based on our experience and our former clients’ positive feedbacks considering your comfort. All will be clean and have ensuite facilities. We know you'll prefer to stay centrally, convenient to the main historic, shopping or entertainment districts; or scenically in areas of natural beauty.

Both smokers and non-smokers are welcomed on our tours. Although, smoking is not permitted in flights, and tour buses/minivans, we do make plenty of convenience stops giving you the opportunity to smoke, use local restroom facilities, take a scenic snapshot or just relax and enjoy a cup of coffee. Although non-smoking rooms are available in most of hotels, we can not guarantee the availability until we confirm your reservations.
