Your passport must be valid for six months beyond the return date of your trip. If not, the airlines will not let you fly. If you do not have a valid passport whose expiration date ends more than six months after the date of your tour, you must apply for one immediately. Passports may be obtained at many post offices.
WHAT ABOUT CHILDREN?
Children being children, it is not advisable to bring young ones on group tours. As precious as they are, they are sometimes worrisome to other travelers and it is doubtful whether the children will absorb the full meaning of the experience. The cost of bringing a child is the same as for an adult.
There is a different price for using a credit card.
CRIME AND SAFETY
Before traveling please consult the following website for tips regarding safety:
INFLUENCE OF QUALITY CONSIDERATIONS: We are more interested in quality tours than cheap tours although we can do both. Sometimes you will find tours from other companies that are lower priced than ours, but we encourage you to compare all of the inclusions and exclusions and levels of service of any lower price you may see.
Ö Bring layers. Plan for variations in weather from warm to cold to rain. Think washable, wrinkle-free, cool and compact.
Ö Comfortable shoes are a MUST! (lots of uneven walkways)
Ö Take toiletries in small containers—just the amount needed. Take disposable items that can be tossed when you are finished.
Ö Plan for medication, health and hygiene needs. You may not be able to run out and buy what you need.
Ö Ship purchases home whenever possible. Carry as few as possible.
Ö Make a list of luggage contents and approximate value in case you have to fill out a baggage claim form.
Ö Practice Pack! Lay out everything and start packing by priority. (Write it down; then pare it down!)
Ö Take 30 $1 bills. These can get you through many situations.
Ö Carry an emergency bag to see you through all (Kleenex, towelettes, passport, cash, ID, credit card/traveler’s checks, your hotel list, local maps, something edible. Buy water after security.)
Ö CLOTHING: casual clothing, walking shoes, underwear, nighties, sweater/light jacket, rain poncho, minimum jewelry.
Ö MAKE-UP ITEMS and TOILETRIES: Keep a meticulous list over a week’s period of the “stuff” you cannot live without.
Ö HEALTH ITEMS – vitamins, aspirin, medications, extra pair of glasses and a copy of your Rx, contact lens stuff, laxative, diarrhea needs, decongestant.
Ö PASSPORT/CREDIT CARD/ATM CARD!!* (Most items forgotten from above can be replaced with these!
Ö MISC.: Bible. Consider also the following: small sewing kit, plastic folding cup, wash cloth, mirror, shower cap, small scissors, travel alarm, curling iron, travel iron, camera, umbrella, outlet adaptor, watch, other books and small binoculars.
Be aware and be careful.
Always carry small coins in local currency.
Fruit and cheese from a local vendor might be fine for lunch.
