No, you can come whenever you want, depending on availability of flights and hotels.

Not really….Actually what we do in our tours is give you as much information as possible and creating a visual image of the attractions by the use of senses like smell, touch, taste and feel.

SENIORS FAQ's

Are my tours different that the standard ones?
Not al all!! Bascially we do the same activities, visit the same places, have the same experiences as our regular tours. The only difference is the time required to do the activities, therefore the number of activities we do per day.

How many activities do we do per day?
We understand that taking a holiday is “vacation/relaxing time”. We do not intend to see everything or do everything in the less time possible. Instead we do one or at the most two activities per day, but we certainly make sure we get the most out of that activity/tour.
