Frequently Asked Questions
Ideally its best to arrive on the start date of the tour however you can arrive up to 2 days before, these nights will be booked separately, but we will still pick you up from the airport.
Your trip ends on the Gili T’s and we do always advise that you should allow plenty of time to get back from Gili T to Bali, as it takes about 5/6 hours by ferry/bus and I would recommend a flight home for after 7pm or the next day to avoid any rushing and to take into account delays/cancellations which may occur.
No, flights to your destination are not included and you will need to book them yourself however we can help you! Also, we will be at the airport to meet you once you arrive.
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.
There no age limits on our trips however most of our travellers are between 18 and mid 30’s. Remember you’re only as old as you feel!
It depends on your nationality and which destination you are travelling to. For full visa information please check the Indonesian embassy website
Everyone spends differently so it’s hard for us to give an exact amount but we usually recommend around £150 – £250 per week is sufficient for you to have an epic time. All your activities, transport and accommodation is covered by us so you just need to worry about what your food, drink and shopping which is usually pretty cheap in Asia. Please note we can not be held responsible if you start popping bottles of champagne on the first night and run out of money ?
No we can pick you up from the airport at any time of day or night so you can pick the best flight that works for you.
Yes as long as you stay at our hotel and are arriving within 2 days of your start date. Once you have booked and we have rceived your flight details, we will be in touch to orgniase your extra nights.
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. We do however recommend you take a course of malaria tablets if travelling to Vietnam on one of our trips as a precaution.
Food is usually not included in our tours 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.
Our accommodation is mainly in twin share accommodation in some awesome hotels. You will always be sharing a room with someone of the same sex from your group. We do sometimes stay in dorm accommodation which will be exclusive to our tour group. We use the best accommodation in each location and we have been using them for many years. Its extremely safe.
We head out every evening as a group for dinner and often drinks. We take you to some of the coolest spots around as well as some hidden gems we’ve discovered over the years. This is not part of the itinerary so you do not have to participate but we try to maximise your adventure.
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 thats 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.
There are ATMs readily available in all of our destinations so we would recommend getting a travel card with good rates and withdrawing cash locally rather than carrying big amounts with you. If you are going to bring cash you would get a better rate if you exchanged in Asia so bring your home currency with you.
