Accommodation

This page is intended to give an idea of the type of accommodation that may be expected. The actual hotels used for any given tour may change due to many reasons such as group size, availability, time of year, hotel standard has dropped or simply we found a better hotel. We update the website immediately if and when any changes take place. If and when we do change hotels it will be to a hotel of equal or higher standard and will be at no extra cost.

Where more than one hotel is shown for a given overnight stop this means that we alternate between the listed hotels. The pre departure pack will show hotel for a given departure.
