HOW DIFFICULT AND FLEXIBLE ARE TRIP ACTIVITIES?
You don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to enjoy our trips. A typical day consists of a personally paced 5-mile hike or 20-mile bike ride. We’re flexible, though “ we’ll adjust distances and levels of difficulty up or down according to your abilities and desires.
WHAT IS THE MINIMUM AGE AND DO YOU OFFER CHILD DISCOUNTS?
On adult trips, our minimum age is 16. On designated family adventures, we accommodate children as young as 7 (age 6 for Yellowstone & age 5 on our Costa Rica Family Adventures). Children who share accommodations with one or more adults will receive discounts of 10 – 25%, depending upon the trip.
WHAT ABOUT SINGLE AND SOLO TRAVELERS?
Many of our guests travel solo. Solo travelers have the option of paying a single supplement for a private room throughout the trip. At your request, we will also try to match you up with a suitable roommate. If we’re unable to do so and you are forced into a private room situation, we will only charge you 50% of the customary single supplement charge (on most trips). We recommend talking to one of our Custom Trip Experts if this is something you’re interested in.
WILL I HAVE TIME TO SPEND ON MY OWN?
Though our days are busy, there’s always downtime to shop, relax or visit the spa. At any time during your trip, if you feel lik putting your feet up instead of opting for the day’s activities, that’s fine. This is your vacation!
HOW FAR IN ADVANCE DO I NEED TO RESERVE MY TRIP?
The farther in advance you book, the better selection of dates you’ll have. On most trips you’ll want to book 3 to 6 months out. For holiday trips, you’ll want to reserve 6 to 8 months out. Rest assured, though, we’re also masters at accommodating lastminute reservations!
