How can I make a booking for one of your trips?
Is my booking always directly confirmed?
What happens after my booking request is approved?
How do I organise my international flights?
What type of accommodation will I stay at?
How are the hotels I will stay in?
Most of our tours are comfort rated 3 (the category we call "comfortable"). You can expect to stay in en-suite, air-conditioned rooms in good quality, comfortable family run hotels, with possibly a night or two somewhere more basic to allow the itinerary to get off the beaten tourist track.
Quality of service and standards of cleanliness and safety are more important to us than the hotel facilities; to us a friendly welcome and comfortable bed matter more than TVs and mini-bars.
We prefer smaller, family-run hotels, as they usually offer a warmer welcome and the money we spend gets re-invested in the local economy.
We normally choose hotels that don't insist on half-board or full-board packages: this gives you the flexibility to eat where you want and doesn't tie you to the (often rather bland) hotel restaurant.
Accommodation choices are based on what's available in the places we want to stay: if that mean's a simple guesthouse, so be it - we choose the accommodation to suit the itinerary, not the other way round.
