Trip Frequently Asked Questions
Yes, lots of people come on our trips alone, its a great way to meet new people and you will never feel alone from the moment you arrive as you will instantly be travelling with an awesome group of like-minded people.
For most of our destinations, you don’t need any specific vaccinations however its always good to check with your doctor to make sure you have an up to date tetanus jab.
Food is usually not included however we do include occasional meals on day trips. We do also head out every evening for a group dinner at some awesome our favourite spots.
Your group leader will get in touch with you a week before your trip to confirm your meeting time/flight details and to introduce themselves.
If you have an allergy you must let us know as we will make your group leader aware. We also recommend printing out allergy cards in the local language. These cards can be easily found on google and are great to carry as they can be shown to the restaurants we eat at to explain your allergy in depth and make sure nothing gets lost in translation.
We would always recommend a backpack. Suitcases are not ideal for Asia as even if your suitcase has wheels its very hard to pull it across the beach. If its your first time with a backpack, you’ll never look back after.
We are not going to force anyone to do anything they might not want to do so if you’re not confident on a push bike and want to sit out a bike ride or not a fan of open water and want to stay on the boat during snorkelling that’s absolutely fine, its your adventure!
Yes we try and balance our itineraries with a nice balance of awesome activities and free time to explore the local surroundings, shop or even get a well earned massage.
