Questions & Answers

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.

I do not mean to give off a negative impression. It is simply that the overall experience was not pleasant. Ultimately, however, we had a wonderful trip, and we highly recommend CIE Tours. The tour director for the first leg of our tour was EXCELLENT!
