Questions & Answers

Question: Are there any fees for single travelers?  Also, is transportation to and from airport included?

If you want to stay alone in a room, then you will need to pay a single supplement fee of $909 USD.  Unfortunately, transportation to and from are not included and it is unavailable for purchase through G Adventures.  You can always take a taxi/ride-sharing or we can use one of our third party vendors.

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.
