How much does a tour cost? And what about deposits?

Tour fees vary depending on a lot of factors, especially the length of the tour. Deposits are due at the time of booking and are $700. Deposits are nonrefundable/nontransferable due to the fact they are used to cover administrative expenses such as insurance, office, tour booking, vehicle purchase and other related expenses. Your tour balance is due no later than February 1st of the year your tour starts. Once you book a spot on a tour we’ll send you an invoice which you can pay the deposit and tour balance from. Please check out our tour schedule page for a listing of our offerings. You can click on the tour name to take you to a page where tour details are shown. Once your tour is paid in full, the following rules apply. If you would need to cancel and it is greater than 60 days before your tour starts, you would be refunded 50% of the tour fee, less the deposit. If it is 60 days or less till the start of your tour with us, there would be no refund given.  However, if we can resell your vacated spot, you would be given a refund, less the nonrefundable deposit.  (Under certain rare circumstances, we may allow tour fees to be rolled over for one time only. If not used during the year in which they were rolled over to, they will be forfeited.)
