We understand that it is often a challenge to plan your vacation far in advance. However, we encourage you to make early reservations (at least 2 months in advance) on all tours in order to guarantee that you will be confirmed. We must let the suppliers who are the key features of our tours, namely, hotels, attractions and restaurants, know how many passengers are on our tours, and we often have to pay as much as six months in advance for many admissions. If we have a low number of bookings for a particular tour, we are forced to cancel it or lose our deposit and payments. Such a situation is very disappointing to us but also to those of you who may call for reservations one or two weeks before a trip is scheduled. The earlier you book a tour, the less likely of a cancellation.
