Yes. The price of the tour does not include flights and we do not provide a flight booking service. We would always ask that you wait until you receive your final confirmation email before booking flights.
All of our trips come with luggage transfer included, apart from self-drive tours or tours based in one hotel. You will drop overnight bags (one per person) by an allotted time each morning in a designated area in your hotel or B&B. Typically, bags should be left at the reception or store room by 09:00 hrs. We will provide you with name tags, which you should attach to your bags so that the driver can identify them. You are then free to walk unencumbered, with only your day pack of essentials.
Your baggage will be transferred to your next night’s accommodation, and will be waiting for you at reception when you arrive. Each information pack will advise you of any weight limits or restrictions you should be aware of.
Because we are providing self-guided trips, this enables us to book small authentic local accommodation that large group tours would not be able to use. These are typically small hotels, inns and B&B’s. All of our accommodations are chosen for their comfort, quality of service and standards of cleanliness and safety. 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. In more remote areas, such as the high Alps, some nights may be in more basic accommodation.
Yes. It is no problem extend your trip by adding one or more extra nights before or after the trip. We can arrange this for you. When completing the booking form, type this in the ‘Comments’ field. Let us know how many additional nights you want and on which dates.
