Questions & Answers

Question: When it says view, is it just ride by on the bus or walk by on walking tour? Do we actually go inside to really see these buildings?

CostSaver practices Visit, View and See. Anytime you see the word Visit you go inside, anytime you see the word View you walk near the landmark but don't actually go inside, and anytime you see the word See you simply drive by the location and see it from the tour coach.

Question: How many suitcases can I take with me on my trip?

Each person is allowed one "check-in," and one "carry-on." Remember to take all valuables with you as "carry-on", because electronic equipment, cameras, laptops, jewelry, business documents and money are not covered by the airlines' liability, so always carry them aboard with you.

Question: Is Airfare Included in the Price?

Airfare from your point of origin to and from the trip is not included in the land price.
