Hello! My friend and I are interested in the 7-day Enchanted Sand Cities tour. I have a few questions before I make a reservation. I am wondering if there is any possibility of cancellation of this tour scheduled on 6th August, 2016. Also, is this tour visiting White Sands National Monument? I guess August is pretty hot there, so can you really make it? And lastly, I will join the tour from LA, but can I finish it in San Francisco? These are pretty much all of the questions I've got at the moment. I am lookimg forward to your responses. Thank you so much. by Jihyo Kim on 2016-04-28
