It can also be hot during the summer months. However we operate all year round and adapt tours to the conditions.

Are the tours suitable for children?
Yes – we are happy to have families on tour.
What happens if my tour is cancelled due to weather and road conditions?
We reserve the right to cancel or postpone any tour due to unforeseen circumstances, such as road conditions, flooding, mechanical defect, cultural considerations or other reason. In the event of tour cancellation, an alternative tour or full refund for that tour will be offered.
