Yes. Once we have confirmed your reservation, you can count on your trip, with the following conditions: self-guided trips have a two person minimum, so solo travelers must join a date when others are doing the same tour. Guided trips have a four-person minimum. If the four-person minimum is not met, the options are to pay a privately-guided premium or to switch to self-guided format. See our terms and conditions for full details.

We are sometimes able to fit you in even if you only give us a week or two, but it is much better to anticipate further in advance, and we welcome your bookings even a year or more ahead. The more time you give us, the better lodging we are able to assign to you, and the more likely it is that you will be part of a well-rounded small group.

Yes. We cannot advise you about what insurance to secure based on where you live, but can strongly recommend that you have insurance in place to protect you in case of medical emergencies, cancellations, etc.
