I am staying at an AirBNB. Where can I get picked up from?

We cannot pick up clients from AirBNBs for our tours. If you are staying in Batsi then you can come by our offices here to start the tour.

What if it rains?

All our bus tours run regardless of weather. If we are forced to cancel an activity because of extreme weather conditions, you have the option to change date or switch activity or cancel and receive a refund.

What time is the pick-up time for the tours?

The pick-up time for all our tours is the same as the meeting time, indicated on your vouchers and our website. Please note that there may be a slight difference of 5-10 minutes between that time and the actual pick up time, depending on the number of pickups we have scheduled. Please be ready 10 minutes prior to your trip in order to facilitate that.

Can I bring my luggage inside your bus?

Yes you can! In case there is no room in our bus, we will drop off your luggage on our offices and you will be able to pick them up after the end of the tour.

How late can I make a booking?

You can make a booking with us literally at the last minute! Just keep in mind that there may be no seats left on the tour if you do that! We recommend booking at least one week in advance, in order to have the best chances of finding availability.

Which tours can I join on the same day?

We have split our tours. Morning and afternoon ones. Furthermore, all our tours visit different places. This way, you can combine any morning tour with any afternoon tour you wish.
