Travel at your own schedule


Because all of our packages are privately arranged whereas you will get a private tour with a private guide and private transportation, there is no fixed start or finishing dates, you can do it at your own schedule. If we have to, we will simply alter the itinerary so that it fits with the cruise embarkation, ensuring that no planned visits are missed, just rescheduled somewhere else.

This allows you to get the best available flights, which is a huge asset if you are traveling on a budget. Obviously, this is something that companies that only offer large group visits cannot offer.
