We use many different styles of Tour Operators. On some of our tours you can expect a small group, up to 20 people, with a Tour Manager and local guides that have a ton of experience and can answer all of your questions regarding the area you are visiting. On other tours you can expect more like 45-60 people, depending on the mode of transportation. For cruising we have had as many as 200 gals join us on a Mediterranean voyage, so it really depends on the destination and tour operator.
When you land in your destination, we will have someone waiting for you to take you to your first night hotel so that you are not left trying to find a taxi and to attempt to understand the language. They will have a sign with your name on it, so please look for it after exiting immigration and baggage claim. If you require assistance with your bags they can also help you, just ask.
Once you have arrived at your initial hotel, you will be introduced to the Tour Manager who will introduce you to the other members of your party. The first day is usually left up to the traveler to either rest up for their adventure, or go and do some sightseeing with their newly met friends.
The following day your adventure begins. You will be guided from one city to another, see lands and experience the people from these great cities and countries.
Your transportation, hotels/accommodations and a lot of the food has been prearranged for you so there are no worries. Please bring about $500 USD (or more lol!) with you for food not included, entrance fees not included and shopping for yourself. We stop along roadside stands where the driver will give you enough time to wander and buy the local fares.
At the end of your journey you may have a ride back to the airport for your departure. If this is not included in your package, please speak to the Tour Guide and there may be others that you can share a taxi with.
You have now made new friends from around the globe. Please share your photos on Facebook and mention what a great adventure you had with BraveWomenTravel.com
