What kind of currency do you accept?

We accept USD and Euros currently, and we will add more currencies later on to be accepted.

Will I have to pay out-of-pocket for food? What will meals cost?

On almost all of our tours, meal expenses are extra. Tour buses will stop at food courts and buffet-style restaurants so that guests will be able to purchase filling meals for as little money as possible. The average cost per meal per person should be between $5 and $10.

Guidelines for Unaccompanied Minors Traveling on a Tour

Due to safety reasons the tour does not allow minors and children  to travel alone on the tour. They have to be accompanied by an adult (18 years and older) at all times.


I am a single traveler. How can I book the tour? How can I find a travel companion?

If you are traveling alone, you can book a single-occupancy room. If you would rather have a roommate, you can find a travel companion through TakeTours by posting your requirements here.If someone is interested in traveling with you, you can co-ordinate this directly with the person.

Will I have a tour guide?

A tour can be unescorted, semi-guided, or fully guided. You may check the level of your tour on the tour page under “inclusions.”

Level 1– Unescorted Tour: This is a self-guided tour. You will be transferred between attractions and accommodations but there will no one organizing activities for you.

Level 2– Semi-Guided Tour: A tour guide will organize the group and arrange for any optional attractions and meal stops. These tours are perfect for those who like some structure to the day, but want more free time and meals on their own. The tour guide will be available to assist passengers if any problems arise.

Level 3– Fully-Guided Tour: A tour guide will organize the group and arrange for any optional attractions and meal stops. In addition, the guide will conduct an informative tour of sights throughout the trip. The tour may be conducted in more than one language.
