Note on Itinerary
The tour programs are very much set and we do our best to adhere to the itinerary, but the sights listed should be taken as a general guideline that, given local circumstances, might differ in sequence or substance on a given day. You will be provided final trip dossier about seven or eight weeks prior the travel date.
Trip Activity Level.
This trip is basically motor vehicle-based sightseeing with some boating excursions and some long days driving. Road conditions vary, but generally they are paved. Sightseeing or excursions usually start in the mid-morning, and you will be back to the hotel by late afternoon. The trip does not involve any serious hiking or physical challenges, and so travelers with generally good health conditions can enjoy the trip. Still, the fitter you are, the better you can enjoy the trip.
Accommodations and facilities
The hotels chosen are mid-range properties and ensure adequate amenities and facilities. You will have private bathrooms with running hot and cold water. The hotels listed are our preferred properties, but we reserve the right to change them at any time, always working for the betterment of the tour.
All tour guides are local and they change when you travel from one city to the other. They are local people with college degrees, government certifications, and experience with and knowledge of the destinations, their history, culture and religion. Our guides are, just as importantly, easy-going, detailed oriented, patient, and committed to a high level of customer service. They will uncover the wonders of the destinations that you would never find on your own, and make sure your tour unfolds without a hitch. Your guide will also deal with the bureaucracy and passport or permit control, carry all necessary documents and vouchers, and stay alert to road and weather conditions.
We use clean, reliable, comfortable vehicles for all transfers and tours, often the Toyota Hiace microbus (capacity 8-9 persons) and Toyota Coaster Bus (capacity up to 20 persons); depending on group size, we might also use Japanese-made sedans, SUVs or minivans. We provide separate drivers and guides. Our drivers might speak little or no English, but they know the roads and are, in a pinch, mechanically skillful.
