Hi there,

I am taking this 11 day tour and inquiring about the best way to pack luggage for such a trip. Am I able to bring a big suitcase and still travel efficiently or do you suggest most travelers pack lightly using a "back packers" back pack?

Please advise,

Danae

Dear Danae Iatrou,

Thanks for your inquiry.

Each passenger is allowed to travel with one small carry on and one medium sized luggage weighing no more than 50 pounds.

The luggage will be kept in a compartment underneath the bus, while travelling. Each night you will take your luggage with you into your hotel room.

I have question on 11 day tour starting on 06/17/2015.
After being picked up from the airport on Day 1 Morning, are we taken to hotel straight? What is the plan for the rest of the day on Day 1 since the tour seems to be starting on Day 2? Are we free to see the city on our own?
On day 11, can we stay in the same hotel additional night and check out on 28th?
In that case will you provide airport shuttle on 28th, a day after Day 11?

Dear Shainan Patel,

We are unable to provide the number of hours spent on the coach from each of the points. However, travel time can range from 5-6 hours with stops in between for restroom and stretch breaks, as well as meal stops arranged by the tour guide.

​​The morning meeting times can vary any​​where between 6:00am-9:00am (subject to tour guide final arrangement) and are targeted times so that you have as much time as possible at the different attractions, with enough commute time as well. Special circumstances such as weather conditions and traffic may affect your site seeing time, but the tour guide will keep the group updated while on the tour.

Best Regards,
