Travel Package Inclusions

Please note that the packages also include gratuities to guides, drivers, restaurant staff, porters and hotel staff.

Travel Insurance

It is strongly recommended that attendees hold a comprehensive travel insurance policy. We recommend this should is taken out at the time of booking. Like all forms of insurance there are a wide variety of options available from various companies. What is suitable for one could be quite inappropriate for another. Attendees should carefully consider these options and make the selection most relevant to their circumstances. Travel insurance is available from Amaco or your insurance agent. Policy options will be sent to you with the confirmation of your booking.

Note: It is rare that any travel insurance will cover disinclination to travel in the event of terrorist incidents. If you cancel for this reason, you will be liable for the full, published cancellation fees as outlined in the terms and conditions on your registration form.

If you have taken out your own travel insurance, please ensure it is valid for this particular journey. If in doubt, please check with your insurance provider.
