Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Do you arrange transport and accommodation?
No, we only provide the guide. However, we can provide you with links to companies that provide cars and drivers as well as links to hotels that our clients have found to be good.
Do we share our tour with others?
If you take a standard tour you may be sharing with others. If you book a customised tour your tour will be private and personalized so you do not share with anyone else.
How many people can you take on a tour?
Our minimum number is four and our maximum number is twenty for a standard tour and for customised tours there is no lower limit and the maximum is fifteen (number of passengers in a mini-bus).
Can we book a customised guided tour for two people and increase the number later on?
Yes, but if it is a customised tour requiring a vehicle and the increase necessitates a larger vehicle, most chauffeur-driven car or bus companies will require a minimum of twenty-one days notice.
Are admission charges included?
No. Standard tours do not include any sites requiring entrance fees and on the customised tours you get to choose what you want to see as the tour progresses so we do not charge you for tickets in avance. Our guides will defer to the in-house guides where they exist.

Yes, we can plan a guided tour of any duration with you, however, you will have to book your own accommodation and transport but we can advise you on that.
