Trip Info
Do you offer parking lot? Unfortunately, we do not offer parking for most of the departure locations unless it is specified on the page. We recommend you research and verify public parking locations near your destination.
Will I have a tour guide? What language will the tour be conducted?

Most tours will be conducted in English and Chinese by the tour guide. We offer tours with guides who speak Spanish, Chinese, Italian, German, French, Hebrew, Portuguese, and more. Please check the ''Additional Notes'' section of the tour page for language details.

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.


Do you arrange seating? For tours of three days or less, the seats are arranged according to the time of booking. The earlier you book, the closer you will be to the front. For tours of 4 or more days, the seats are rotated so that everyone has the opportunity to sit in different parts of the bus.
Who will be my tour guide? The hotel and tour guide information can be confirmed 24 hours in advance. Please double check with us one day before the departure date.
What kind of hotel will we be staying at?

The itinerary page of the tour will have information about the usual hotel booked for that particular tour as well as the hotel level (i.e., standard, deluxe, etc.). The actual hotel will not be finalized until one or two days before the departure date. Most budget tours have 2-star-level accommodations (e.g., Holiday Inn, Comfort Inn, or Best Western). 

Any meal is included in the tour price? Where will we eat on the tour? 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.
Is the order of the itinerary final? All of the places listed on the itinerary will be visited on the tour. However, the order of the itinerary is always subject to change. It could be reversed based on weather, hotel availability, departure date, etc.
Do I have to pay for the optional activity fees/tour guide tips

You may check the "Price Excludes" part on the tour page. 

The optional activity fee and tour guide tips needs to be paid in cash. Optional activities are always recommended and will have to be paid in cash to the tour guide if desired to take them. Tour guide will arrange tickets for all customers in the group tour. On the other hand tips are not optional; this is a mandatory fee that also needs to be paid in cash when on tour.  Passengers can not buy their own tickets as the tour guide will have the ticket ready for you. 

What do I do if I do not want to join in an activity?

If you do not want to go to the optional attraction, you will have some free time around there, and you just need to meet the group at assigned time/place.

What is included and excluded?
