NACTA – The National Association of Career Travel Agents #travel #greece

#independent travel agents

Many Professional Travel Agents find that working with a “host” agency is the most desirable way to operate their independent travel business. Host agencies specialize in offering independents sophisticated services, overrides, automation, quality control and support. By aligning yourself with a quality host agency you can catapult your business into existence or take it to another level with great confidence that your clients will benefit.

Finding a quality host agency is critical to your success as an independent travel agent. As you might expect, host agencies are all very different so spend some quality time researching which host makes sense for you. Here are a few things to look for in a host agency;

    They already work with successful independent agents

They do not have any unresolved complaints against their agency

They are committed to developing a professional independent agent network

They do not have a “travel agent recruiting other travel agents” program.

They do not tout “travel agent ID cards” to obtain travel discounts.

They offer meaningful commissions and overrides

They are active ASTA and NACTA members

You understand what you are getting for your investment (if any)

They offer ongoing support

It really doesn’t matter where the host agency is located so don’t get locked into the idea that they have to be down the street from your operation. There are several solutions to the issues of access, communication and delivery that resolve the question of location. Most of all you should feel comfortable with your new host agency and their ability to fulfill your needs as your business grows.

NACTA has a membership for host agencies and the minimum standards for a host agency to qualify for this program are as follows:

    Must have been in business as a host agency for at least one full year

Must carry at least one million dollars in Errors and Omissions Insurance or require all independents to maintain their own current policies.

Average sales volume per independent agent must exceed $10,000.00

There are no unresolved complaints against Host agency

Committed to the development of a professional independent travel agent network

Registered to operate as a host agency with all local, state and federal governments as required

Do not have a “recruitment program” whereby consumers recruit other consumers into the network as a higher priority than individual travel sales.

Do not offer a “Travel Agent Photo ID Card” for the purpose of consumers to obtain travel professional benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions about Host Agencies

Why do I need a host agency?

Most Independent Travel Agents find it necessary (and desirable) to associate with a host agency for the purpose of obtaining domestic airline tickets, override commissions, marketing support, expertise, automation, quality control, clout, operational support and many other reasons that may be a combination of the above.

How do I know which host agency to choose?

Long before you choose your host agency you should develop a business (and marketing) plan so that you understand the nature of the business you intend to develop. If you plan to specialize in selling cruises you will probably want to find a host agency that specializes in working with a cruise specialist. Conversely, if you plan to specialize in handling corporate accounts, you will want find a host agency with the expertise and support mechanism, to make you successful. It is highly unlikely that a cruise specialist can help you if you want to sell corporate accounts and vice versa.

Why does one host agency charge $7,500.00 and the next charge $300.00?

Host agencies are just like other businesses. One may specialize in recruiting brand new agents and have a heavy concentration on training and start up integration into their network. The very next may simply recruit experienced agents and offer no training or integration support whatsoever. Common sense should lead your way through this maze. If the host agency you are looking at is charging $7,500.00 and giving you nothing but simply paying for their marketing cost of finding new agents, then look somewhere else. But, If you can easily see the value in a host agency charging even say, $10,000.00, then that may be a wise decision to make concerning your future.

What is the best computerized reservation system (CRS) or GDS to use?

Many new agents think the sun rises and sets on access to the CRS in the travel industry. Their first concern is “what computer software do I need to book travel”. For the most part, CRS (Computerized Reservations System) or GDS access is not really necessary unless you are going to be booking a lot of domestic airline tickets. Many host agencies offer Internet access to their CRS or GDS and others may offer dial up access via modem. The decision on which host to pick should not be based on the type of CRS access they offer, but on the level of support and overrides they offer as it pertains to your business plan.

What should I look for in a host agency?

There are quite a few things to look for in terms of how a host agency pertains to your business plan. Generally, however, these are the things that NACTA looks at. How long have they been in business? Does the host agency carry Errors and Omissions Insurance? What is the average sales volume per independent agent? How many independent agents belong to the network? Are there any unresolved complaints against the agency with the Better Business Bureau, the State Attorney General’s Office, or the FTC? Agencies appearing on these links have all passed these standards.

What about the $495 instant travel agency deals or Card Mill organizations?

Think about it. If all anyone had to do was pay $495 and then fly first class, stay in suites for free, and take cruises for $10 per day, who would pay full fare? If you really believe you can do all of this for $495, then you probably deserve to lose the money anyway. The truth is that when these operations first started they were able to fool some of the suppliers with phony ID cards and receive travel discounts, but the industry is wise to them now and it is going to be difficult (if not impossible) to fool anyone into accepting phony ID cards. There are some host programs that do charge a start up fee of around the $495 amount but what they include or offer can be on the up and up. Check carefully. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Most Helpful Travel Sites for Booking Hotels – Flights #cheap #airline

#travel sites for flights

Most Helpful Travel Sites for Booking Hotels & Flights

by Elizabeth Harper on March 20, 2014

If you’re planning a family vacation or romantic getaway, you’re probably aware of the huge number of ways to search for the right flights and hotels. And while all of these search services work hard to show you the lowest prices, a lot of them miss the mark where it comes to helping you find the best trip.

For example, would you pay $10 more for a flight without a lengthy layover (or without a layover at all)? Even penny-pinchers might find spending that much money to be a worthwhile investment. And what about extra legroom, Wi-Fi access or the best hotel pool? We might consider these must-haves for a happy vacation, but budget-minded search sites can make these amenities harder to hunt down in an effort to save you a buck or two.

A new crop of travel sites is focusing less on cost and more on happiness to help you find not the lowest price tag without impacting your enjoyment on your trip. We’ll walk you through the most helpful sites to help book your perfect vacation.

Find the best flights

We’re big fans of Routehappy. which literally ranks flights based on, yes, happiness. Routehappy tries to find the right balance between a pleasant flying experience and the lowest price.

The search is simple: Enter your starting point, your destination and your travel dates, and Routehappy sets out to find the happiest flights. Sort options by happiest, cheapest, fastest or departure or arrival times, and filter for nonstop, happy and cheap options, nicer planes, roomier seats, high ratings, Wi-Fi, entertainment options and at-seat power in addition to standard options for time and airline. Though it doesn’t show information on extra fees on the search page, clicking on any flight on Routehappy provides extra info about bag fees; it would be nice if this were shown on the main page for more accurate cost calculations, but it’s not a deal-breaker.

The downside to Routehappy is that it doesn’t offer a lot of flight flexibility. You can’t book multi-leg trips or use flexible dates. For that, we like Hipmunk. which offers similar search features with even more options. Search Hipmunk for one-way, round-trip or multi-city flights by entering your starting point, destination and travel dates. Then Hipmunk brings up a list of flights sorted by the lowest agony level, which is a combination of price, duration and number of stops.

Though Hipmunk doesn’t offer the amenity details Routehappy focuses on, it definitely helps find the flight options that are least likely to start your vacation off with frustration. Hipmunk lets you sort results by agony, price, duration and departure or arrival times, as well as filter by airlines, number of stops and nonstops.

To put these sites through their paces, we went shopping for a trip from Austin, Texas, to Los Angeles, California, at the end of May. Routehappy suggested a nonstop JetBlue flight with a happiness rating of 8.7 for $375 round trip with a free checked bag. The next flight, with Alaska Airlines, rated 7.8 on happiness but only cost $355 for a round-trip, nonstop flight but with fees for checked baggage, it could be just as pricey as JetBlue for a less happy flight unless you’re going with a carry-on bag only.

Hipmunk guided us towards cheaper flights, suggesting a nonstop flight from United for $355 round trip. However, we found little information on the flight’s amenities just an icon showing whether or not the flight had Wi-Fi and the only warning about baggage fees comes before you pay, when an additional baggage fees may apply warning pops up. Still, with baggage fees to be expected on most airlines, we don’t think this is a deal-breaker either, especially when Hipmunk does such a good job of directing you to low-pain flights.

Find the perfect hotel

With so many hotel options available, finding the perfect place to stay can be even more of a hassle than choosing the right flight. For general hotel searches, we turn to Hipmunk again. Much as it does with flights, Hipmunk rates hotels on their ecstasy level, which is a combination of price, rating and location.

Enter a location and your check-in and check-out dates, and Hipmunk offers an array of hotels with photos, ratings and TripAdvisor ratings (when available). You can sort by ecstasy, price, stars and reviews as well as filtering by business, kid-friendly, luxury or romantic getaway.You can also narrow your search by property type, amenities and specific chains you might be interested in staying in.

Hipmunk is unusual amongst hotel search engines in that it includes Airbnb’s unique properties as results in your search. If a conventional hotel stay isn’t what you want, though, you’ll probably want to visit Airbnb directly. Airbnb offers unique rentals ranging from single rooms to entire houses to truly unique experiences like a stay in a treehouse or a train caboose.

Enter your location and trip dates, and you’ll get a range of options with photos and reviews. Sorting options are limited to location, price, property type (private room, shared room, etc.) and a few basic amenities, but that’s still more than enough to find some truly individual vacation experiences.

If you want the most search options possible, you’ll want to try Though it’s a pretty conventional travel search engine, it offers the most options to filter your results to find the exact property you want. In addition to standard filters for price, location, property type, amenities, and ratings, also lets you easily narrow your options by distance to specific attractions or landmarks, by accessibility features for disadvantaged travelers, and by more themes than other searches offer including beach, boutique, business, casino, family-friendly, golf, historic, LGBT-welcoming, luxury, romantic, shopping and spa trips. On the downside, because it’s such a general search, it probably won’t hit the perfect hotel until you configure all of the filters.

We gave all three of these searches a test run looking for a hotel for our imagined Los Angeles trip. Without any filtering, Hipmunk suggested a $119-a-night stay at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel, which ranks three stars or three and a half stars on TripAdvisor, followed by a loft listing from Airbnb and then by more reasonably priced and reasonably rated but not necessarily stand-out hotels.

Airbnb immediately impressed, with the first result featuring splashing photos of a waterfront suite in Marina del Rey for $130 a night. Other options included a historic home in Venice, a guest house in Manhattan Beach, and a kitschy, 60s-style trailer just blocks from the beach.’s listings were by far the most conventional, suggesting big brands like Marriott (a top-of-the-page sponsored listing for $1,295 a night) and Loews Hollywood (for $229 a night). However, it just takes a few seconds to apply filters to get highly rated hotels more in our price range, like the Millennium Biltmore that Hipmunk recommended.

Whatever your travel situation, you can’t go wrong with one of these travel searches. All of these will help you narrow your vacation searches to find ideal flights and hotels that will transport you to vacation bliss.

Making Fake Boarding Passes as Gifts – Le Chic Geek #inflatable

#airplane ticket

What s Wrong With This Bathroom?

26 days ago

When I surprised my mom with tickets to Paris, I printed out fake boarding passes to present to her.

I ve had some people ask me how I did this, and it was actually quite easy!

First, if you are looking for a way to make your First Class tickets look as real as possible, that won t work with what I used.  My tickets were obviously not real , but were informative.

I searched the one place I thought I would find really detailed instructions on building intricate boarding passes wedding websites.

Please note, the instructions for the boarding pass template are really overwhelming.  They suggest using tools, making multisided boarding passes, and making your own envelopes.  I stared at it blankly for a while.

But remember, these instructions are for obsessed brides.  I used a printer, scissors, one   page of the boarding pass template (page 3), and an envelope I swiped from a boarding gate.

I cut them out, stapled them together, and threw them into the envelope.  I swiped the language from tourism websites/books for the two places.

I m awful at these DIY tasks.  Pinterest is full of things I can never have. Still, I pin things in hopes that some day some day I will suddenly become more crafty.

But here s how a klutz easily did it:

1. Download This Boarding Pass Template

Just click on the boarding passes on that site and it ll download.  I ll wait for your download to finish.

2. Open it, and only focus on page 3

If you are crafty, by all means, poke around the template and make something really fancy (and show me!) but if you are just looking for gift tickets and aren t making wedding invitations, go to page three.

3. Change the text and insert images

This was really easy.  The text is already there, so I clicked on everything I wanted to change and edited the wording.  The pictures are slightly trickier if you aren t used to dropping images into Word (after all, it s called Word)  but here s an easy screen show of how to.

Go to Insert and choose Clip Art.  If you have your own photos you want to put in, choose picture, but Clip Art was sufficient for me!

And then search the ClipArt for a graphic that matches up with your trip and drag it onto the picture.  You can move it around as much as you want until you get it in the right place.

And here s it in the document:

You can get fancier with changing fonts and colors as your knowledge of Word allows.  But I found this basic template really easy to use.

If you want to share the boarding pass template with other people, please link to her site.  As I was trying to find it again, I found websites linking directly to her template rather than her website, which seemed to suggest they made the template.  I want to make sure she gets all the credit she deserves for this amazing idea!

She also has a template for a fake Passport. in case you d prefer to surprise someone with a trip through a series of passport stamps.

Hope this helps and let me know what you make!

For details about the actual trip:

1. Surprising Someone With a Trip to Paris

2. The Newark Lufthansa Senator Lounge

3. Lufthansa Business Class from EWR-FRA

4. The Hilton Frankfurt Airport

5. Roaming Frankfurt Wild

In this time you will get to see Kudremukh landscape.In summer it will be hard to trek as distance of total trek is 18KMS hence covering total distance under hot sun will be difficult. Try to avoid heavy rainy season. It will be very difficult in rains because you will land in to leaches land.

Jordan – Lonely Planet #travel #safe

#jordan travel

Introducing Jordan

A safe haven in a region of conflict, Jordan has delighted visitors for centuries with its world heritage sites, friendly towns and inspiring desert landscapes.

Ancient Allure

Jordan has a tradition of welcoming visitors: camel caravans plied the legendary King’s Highway transporting frankincense in exchange for spices and Nabataean tradesmen, Roman legionnaires, Muslim armies and zealous Crusaders all passed through the land, leaving behind impressive monuments. These monuments, including Roman amphitheatres, crusader castles and Christian mosaics, have fascinated subsequent travellers in search of antiquity and the origins of faith. The tradition of hospitality to visitors remains to this day.

Desert Landscapes

Take a ride through Wadi Rum at sunset and it’s easy to see why T E Lawrence (Lawrence of Arabia) was so drawn to this land of weathered sandstone and reddened dunes. But Jordan’s desert landscapes are not confined to the southeast: they encompass a salt sea at the lowest point on earth, canyons flowing with seasonal water, oases of palm trees and explosions of springtime flowers scattered across arid hills. Minimal planning and only a modest budget is required for an adventure.

Why I Love Jordan

By Jenny Walker, Writer

From the first ‘ahlan wa sahlan’ said in welcome, I knew that Jordan was to become a lifelong friend. After going in search of T E Lawrence as a student, I have returned many times to the low-slung tents of the Howeitat, sipped tea with rug-makers and walked in the wake of shepherds. Beautiful though it is, and blessed with a disproportionate number of wonders, Jordan inspires this loyalty primarily because of its spirit of generous optimism – opening its arms to strangers and sharing its meagre wealth with neighbours in need.

One of the World’s Wonders

Petra, the ancient Nabataean city locked in the heart of Jordan’s sandstone escarpments, is the jewel in the crown of the country’s many antiquities. Ever since Burckhardt brought news of the pink-hued necropolis back to Europe in the 19th century, the walk through the Siq to the Treasury (Petra’s defining monument) has impressed even the most jaded of visitors. It is worth allowing at least two days to make the most of a visit, particularly as the sites are far flung, best seen in early morning and late afternoon, and require a fair amount of walking.

A Taste of the Middle East

It takes tolerance to host endless waves of incomers and Jordan has displayed that virtue amply, absorbing in recent times thousands of refugees from Palestine. Iraq and most recently Syria. Despite contending with this and with ever-growing numbers of tourists who are often insensitive to conservative Jordanian values, rural life in particular has managed to keep continuity with the traditions of the past. While Jordan faces the challenges of modernisation and growing urbanisation, it remains one of the safest countries in which to gain an impression of the Middle East.

This is the worst company I have ever had the displeasure of doing business with.  After being a long time customer of both Jetsetter and Giltgroup, they have now lost all of my respect and business.

I purchased a hotel reservation from Jetsetter a few days ago, and when I received confirmation, I realized that I had accidentally entered in the wrong date (or their system screwed it up. can t be sure).  I called them right back to fix the problem (this is less than 24 hours after the purchase).  When I speak with them, I am informed that my purchase is not refundable and that they can t change the dates.  Of course I am very upset by this information and request to speak with a manager.  Not surprisingly, the manager is busy and can t take my call, but would be happy to call me back later.  At this point, I am very stressed, as we had already booked our flight, and need to get our vacation figured out immediately.  I let them know this, and they assure me I will get a call back that day.  Stupidly, I believed them.

The next day when I had still not received a call back, I called them again.  They gave me the same information as before, and said that the manager was busy again.  All the while the people I spoke with at this company were rude and disrespectful to me.  I let them know that if I don t get the situation resolved immediately, I will cancel the charges.  This got their attention, and they let me know that they would see what they can do.  A few hours later, I get an email letting me know that I can change the dates of my trip, but can t get a refund of the extra day that I had accidentally booked.

This is still not good enough for me, and I am in the process of canceling the charges with my credit card company.  Apparently, Jetsetter has never learned that the customer is always right.  All they had to do was make a small change to my trip, and everything would have been fine.  Now I have lost many hours of my valuable time in dealing with this, and they have lost a customer.  Hopefully the Yelp community will be reading this as well, and also not patronize this horrible company.

JetLine Travel agents

We have just booked a holiday to benidormin this october, we had paid 510 pound on the 18th aug to this company, and then because we had to change the dates due to work, they charged us another 250 pounds. We have just foned this number we had all the time, and they are saying they have no recollection of us paying any money. We are fuming, they have said now that there is no reference number to this number to this holiday.

They re atrocious.

Paid over 2K for 10 day holiday via Jetline in Ios, Greece. They didn t book the hotel! We turned up after a 14 hour journey to find this out.

The hotel staff at Dionysos resort were excellent and sorted us out with alternative accommodation as best they could but it s not what they paid for. If it hadn t been for them we would have been really stuck.

Took multiple emails to Jetline to get any response at all (they woke when we contacted them via Twitter Facebook). It was weeks afterwards we got some small amount of compensation, after rejecting a derisory first offer. We were to worn out by the constant uselessness of them to carry on fighting.

Our experience was to be: a) ignored at first b) fobbed off for a while c) be offered a small amount of money (with a patronising note).

To recap: Paid Jetline 2k. They didn t book the hotel. They did nothing to help sort out an alternative. Gave us a small amount of money back.

Want this experience? No? Then I recommend giving Jetline a wide berth.

International Travel Nursing – Travel Nursing Central #bcd #travel

International Travel Nursing

International travel is the future of nursing, says Gary Fanger, founder and owner of an international travel nurse comapny. The nursing shortage is not expected to improve anytime soon. While bringing nurses to the United States from other countries is not the answer to the shortage, it can help while other solutions are put into place.

Entering U.S. at port of Entry

List of Volunteer Medical Mission Organizations to forgein countries

Traveling outside of the United States

Working outside of the United States is not usually a money making venture, except in the middle east. In general, nurses tend to make less money in other parts of the world. For example, the pay in the UK and Australia is approximately 27 to 36 thousand U.S. dollars a year. If you want to travel to another country, you may want to consider saving money and paying off bills before you go.

Plan on spending 6 to 8 months in processing before being able to travel. The process of proving your credentials and obtaining a visa still takes awhile even though the United States nursing education is highly regarded in other countries.

It can be difficult to find companies that send nurses to other countries because there is not much money to be made in doing so. Even more difficult is to find a company that sends nurses to a country that speaks a foreign language.

If you are really serious about working outside of the U.S. you may want to apply for licensure in where you want to go. The licensure application is often the most difficult and tedious part of the process and staffing companies will take you more seriously. Below is a list of some foreign nursing boards.

    Travel Tips for holidays in India

    • Many parts of the country experience extreme weather conditions both in summers as well as winters. Research the internet before booking flights to India.
    • Although the country is largely considered to be safe for tourists, travellers should exercise caution before venturing into places which have for long been marred by the unrest, riots, terrorist attacks and insurgency. Check out the FCO’s advice with respect to the same.
    • Consult your GP and get all the important immunizations and vaccinations couple of months before you travel. Many parts of the country including the cities of tourist interest are known to have standards for hygiene and food far less than those observed in the western countries.
    • The country has not been able to free itself from the clutches of Malaria, so carry the necessary medication along.
    • Getting hospitalised in India is one thing no tourist would want. However, in case you do land up in one, ensure that its one of the renowned hospitals.
    • Hotels in India offer a wide range of choice. Check the details of the hotel on the internet or ask for advice before booking a cheap hotel in a remote area.
    • While at the destination, leave your important and valuable belongings at the place of stay if you feel it is safe to do so. Most tourist spots in India witness incidents of pick pocketing and snatching.
    • Always carry a copy of your passport or any other form of identification proof while travelling in India or any other foreign destination.

    India: A Brief Etiquette Guide

    India being a culturally conservative country, expects its visitors to adhere to certain established cultural code of conduct. Though it is not possible to list out all the norms and etiquettes that a guest is expected to follow, as a foreigner you can find your way through by observing the habits and mannerisms followed by others.

    Indians are, in general, very warm and friendly towards foreigners and even if you err in your social interactions, it will be ignored with a smile. However, keep the following things in mind, once you land in India:-

    • ‘Namaste’ or ‘Namaskar’ is the most common greeting and is said with joined palms held near the heart and a slight bow of head.
    • Shaking hands is a common way of greeting in India, but keep in mind that Indian women do not always prefer to shake hands with men. Wait for them to extend their hand.
    • In most households, you will have to take off your shoes before entering the house. This practice is strictly followed in all the places of worships such as temples, mosques and gurudwaras across the country.
    • In India, hierarchy is most important so, greet the eldest or the senior most person first.
    • Most Indian food is eaten by hands, for some dishes you would require a tablespoon and fork.
    • Food is often served in a particular order with the guest of honour being served first. Women typically serve the men and eat later.
    • In any lunch or dinner you attend, leave a small amount of food on your plate which indicates that you are satisfied. Finishing all your food means that you are still hungry.

    INCOME FROM HOME-BASED TRAVEL AGENCY – Travel Agent Jobs #travel #tips

    #home based travel agent


    Athena in Fairfield, California

    48 months ago

    VOA in Ottawa, Ontario said: PLEASE CAN SOMEONE IN CANADA OR the U.S. PLEASE TELL ME APPROXIMATELY HOW MUCH ONE CAN MAKE AS HOME-BASED TRAVEL AGENT? PLEASEEEEEE HELP! I really interested in this but I would like to know if it is worth it. I like traveling myself.

    Hey, I see no one has responded to you, which is wrong. I went to college and earned 3 certificates in Travel in 2008. I started a home-based business through a host agency for a brief time. If you have a good host agency that is legit, and that pays a good commission split (with low fees), and that has good training and a good reputation, you could do o.k. But, you have to hustle to find your business, and you are in competition with the internet. None of these agencies give you leads, the only one I know is American Express, and you have to have sold approx. $100,000 dollars worth of travel in order to work with them. However, if you find a niche, and a good agency, it is worthwhile because you can travel with FAM trips, and get diccounted travel.

    Look on NACTA to find a certified, bonified host agency. Check everything out to see which one suits you, and call them to see how they represent themselves on the phone.

    Blessings, keep me posted; happy holidays.

    Indochina travel Booking – APT Travel Asia #price #airline #tickets

    #indochina travel

    Indochina Travel Booking

    Indochina or Indo-China is a peninsula in Southeast Asia lying roughly southwest of China, and east of India. The name has its origins in the French Indochine as a combination of the names of “India” and “China”, referring to the location of the territory between those two countries, though the majority of people in the region are neither Chinese nor Indian. The term may also be used in biogeography for the “Indochinese Region”, a major biogeographical region within the Indomalaya ecozone.

    The countries of mainland Southeast Asia received cultural influence from both India and China to varying degrees. Some cultures, such as those of Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Thailand are influenced mainly by India with a smaller influence from China. Others, such as Vietnam, are more heavily influenced by Chinese culture with only minor cultural influences from India, largely via the Champa civilization that Vietnam conquered during its southward expansion.

    The historical term French Indochina was a federation of French colonies and protectorates, that France named Cochinchina, Tonkin, Annam, Laos and Cambodia. France had an imperial presence in the region between 1884 and 1954. France withdrew from southeast Asia following the loss of the Indochina War.

    Indochina had boundaries imposed by France as a result of military conquests in the region, encompassing areas that are now modern Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam. The subjects of the colony were not homogenous; rather, Indochina was a “separate entity, it was largely unrelated to the cultural, geographical, and racial elements which shaped the people and governments of its constituent parts”. (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

    Indochina highlights – Indochina Tours #travel #to #go

    #travel indochina

    Indochina highlights

    Day 1: Hanoi

    Arrive in Hanoi and fall into the pace of the city with an evening street eats tour. Hanoi is famous for its street food cuisine and this walking tour has been designed for you to enjoy some of the very best of Vietnam’s street food. Pull up a stool and sample the local brewed beer while you people watch, then head through the narrow, chaotic streets of the Old Quarter to have a Vietnamese style barbeque dinner of flamed grilled meats, tofu and vegetables on skewers.

    Day 2: Hanoi

    Discover the story of Hanoi by exploring its top sites and labyrinthine Old Quarter. See the Presidential Palace, the One Pillar Pagoda and the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum — the resting place of Vietnam’s founding president. You’ll also see the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long, an 11th century archaeological site, and the famous Temple of Literature. End the afternoon viewing Long Bien Bridge, which was partially bombed during the Vietnam War, then take a breezy cyclo ride through the Old Quarter’s 36 streets, finishing up with a coffee in a local café. Tonight board the overnight train to Sapa.

    Day 3: Sapa

    Upon arrival, your guide will be waiting to transfer you to your hotel in Sapa.

    You will take a short way north of Sapa town to the quiet valleys and gorges surrounding the village of O Quy Ho. The shallow winding valley sits in the shadow of Indochina’s highest peak, Fangxipan Mountain, and on clear days you can enjoy superb views of the range. Away from the major tourist routes, this trek is the perfect escape. Pass by oolong tea farms before joining a local footpath that clings to the contours of the rice terraces and takes you gently down the valley past grazing buffalo and working farmers. Walk along ancient stone paths and hear the story of the Black H’Mong migration to these mountains centuries before. Learn about the distinct cultures, languages and lifestyles that make northwestern Vietnam so fascinating, and visit an authentic Black H’Mong house, home to a local family. Transfer back to Sapa town in the early afternoon.

    Day 4: Sapa

    This morning, meet your guide at your hotel and walk south of Sapa towards the busy village of Cat Cat. The valleys that surround the village of Y Linh Ho are some of the most picturesque in the region, and this route allows you to explore one of Sapa’s less-traversed areas. Make your way along a gentle incline, through emerald paddy fields above a deep river gorge, before arriving on the river bank. Take a rest, dip your toes in the cool mountain waters and watch local children fishing with nets, before continuing deeper through the villages and terraces of the Black H’mong. Walk at your own pace and take in some of the best panoramas Vietnam has to offer. Enjoy lunch with a view at a local village restaurant before continuing through the valley towards the village of Lao Chai.

    Take a well-earned rest and enjoy a soothing cup of tea before learning the art of Batik painting. The beautiful textiles of the Black H’mong are famous around the world and Batik is a traditional part of H’mong culture. Under threat from modernization, Batik is now only practiced by a handful of villagers. Join a hands-on master class led by a local expert and take your creation home! You will be supporting a sustainable tourism project that supports local women and ensures this amazing art form is handed down to the next generation.

    Day 10: Ho Chi Minh City

    Travel by speedboat from Ho Chi Minh City to the Cu Chi Tunnels, an underground city for Viet Cong soldiers during the Vietnam War. Cruise the Saigon River, taking in the scenery and river life as you leave the bustling city behind. In the tunnels, discover how the Viet Cong survived underground and see various man traps, bomb craters and other remnants of war. Then visit a farm and taste an unusual local specialty – cricket!

    Day 11: Ho Chi Minh City – Mekong Delta – Can Tho

    Travel into the heart of the Mekong Delta to explore the waterways. See small home based factories perched on the river banks producing candy and oil from coconuts as you meander by boat through rivers and small creeks. Take part in a cooking demonstration and learn how to make the perfect spring roll before sitting down to feast on a three-course lunch aboard Le Jarai, a beautifully restored teak rice barge. Return to the pier and drive to Can Tho, the economic hub of the delta.

    Day 12: Can Tho – Chau Doc

    Rise early and travel by boat to the township of Cai Rang to see the hustle and bustle of a floating market. Watch as vendors hawk their wares from boats teeming with produce and buy a coffee from one of the floating cafes. Then, drive approximately three hours to the township of Chau Doc, a colorful and sleepy town near the Vietnam-Cambodia border.

    This afternoon drive approximately 20kms from Chau Doc to Tra Su Forest and travel by sampan through endless waterways flanked by mangroves and lush greenery. This eco reserve spans 850 hectares and is an ecological haven for fauna and flora, with more than 100 species of water birds and colonies of bats. The best time to visit Tra Su is from September to November when the water is high, although it is accessible all year round. On the way to the forest you will visit a small village of ethnic Khmer, where you will learn about the importance of Buddhism in the community and have the opportunity to chat with monks at the local monastery.

    The lush green paddy fields of Chau Doc are the perfect place to escape modern life and discover the authentic Mekong Delta at its very best. Cycle out along quiet dirt tracks, through villages where life has changed little over the decades and through fields busy with busy farmers and water buffalo. Stop for a picnic breakfast and recharge over a glass of traditional ice tea or coffee before getting back on the saddle and continuing your journey. Stop along the way for a chat with locals and some of the best views Southern Vietnam has to offer. Return to your hotel and a well earned break! Overnight in Chau Doc.

    How to Buy Travel Insurance – Consumer Reports #israel #travel

    #travel insurence

    Maybe, if there are gaps in your auto, health, life, or homeowners policies. But buy wisely.

    Overlapping coverage

    Almost $2 billion in travel insurance is sold each year for several what ifs: You need to cancel a trip because of illness, the death of a relative, or bad weather; your belongings are lost or stolen; your traveling companion dies; or you need emergency medical care. Premiums depend on the age of the travelers, the type of coverage, and the trip’s cost. For a standard policy you’ll pay about 5 to 7 percent of the cost of the trip, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Tour operators, cruise-line reps, and travel agents sell two-thirds of the travel policies, and they collect commission on them.

    But coverage may be unnecessary if you already have protection through homeowners, auto, life, or health insurance. Credit-card benefits and consumer-protection laws also may help. Bob Hunter, director of insurance at the Consumer Federation of America, says travel insurance is often not worth the price. “Don’t buy insurance that covers small, manageable losses or only a slice of risk,” he says.

    For example, losing some of your belongings won’t break you financially, so keep a close eye on your valuables and be ready to accept losing less-valuable stuff. Still losing sleep? Narrow in on what you’re worried about, and see if your insurance or credit cards cover you. Then be flexible. “If you’re worried about dying in a plane crash,” Hunter says, “you should get term life insurance rather than flight insurance, because you might die in a car crash.”

    If you’ll be traveling overseas, your health insurance might not provide coverage should you need to see a doctor or be evacuated to a hospital, the insurance institute says. Medicare generally doesn’t cover health-care expenses outside the U.S. although some Medigap policies do. So you might want to consider a medical travel-insurance policy.

    How To Get Dirt Cheap Airline Tickets – Stumble Forward #ramsay

    #how to get cheap airline tickets

    How To Get Dirt Cheap Airline Tickets

    However a lot of times to take these kinds of vacations it requires buying airline tickets in order to get to your destination.  In this article I m going to share what I ve done to score dirt cheap airline tickets.

    Start Looking Ahead Of Time

    The first thing I always do is look ahead of time.  In fact you can start looking for really cheap airline tickets 330 days ahead of time.  Now I know what your thinking, I m not going to buy my airline tickets that early,  and I m not telling you to.

    What I like to do is once I roughly know the time I m going to take the trip is look up the current going rates for the tickets and make a mental note of the price.  Then every couple of days I will keep checking the price.  What this does for me is it allows me to know what is a dirt cheap airline ticket and what s not.

    I once flew to Los Angles from Ohio and it was going to run around $280 round trip but I knew if I could get the tickets for anything less than that it would be a deal and I ended up finding some for around $240 because  I would relentlessly check ticket prices .  That s what knowing your ticket value can help you do.

    The Day You Fly

    The next thing you need to look at is the day you will fly out.  This can make a big difference in the cost you will pay for a ticket.  In fact the two cheapest days to fly out are Tuesday and Wednesday typically.

    To prove my point I was recently helping a close relative find an airline ticket who was flying from Ohio to North Carolina.  The cost for her to fly on the weekend was around $205, the cost for her to fly on a Tuesday was $150.  So in this case it s obvious that it would be better wait a few more days to save $55.

    The Time Of The Year

    Third, as important as the day is concerned the time of the year you leave is  also very important.  However this a lot of times also depends on the destination.

    For example, if wanted to take a trip to a place in the Caribbean and you were leaving in February you would likely pay more for your ticket.  On the other hand if you left in September during the peak of hurricane season you would likely get some great dirt cheap tickets.

    Stand By

    The next option you should consider is stand by.  This is an option that airlines will offer when you re traveling because their flight may be overbooked or to heavy.  Airlines will then usually ask people if they would like to fly stand by and a lot of times offer a free ticket option which will allow you to fly anywhere in the continental United State.

    However a lot of times these tickets are only good for one year and may have some restriction like stand by only.  To get these deals ahead of time contact the airline you are flying on ask if their is any stand by option available.

    Get Rewards

    Finally the last option is to get an airline miles reward credit card, like the Capital One Venture Rewards credit card.  These cards work great if you want to cut down on ticket prices and fly for really cheap.

    With the Venture card you will get double miles on every purchase you make every day.  They will give you 10,000 bonus miles when you spend a thousand buck in the first three months, and best of all you can fly free with no blackout dates anywhere you want to go. That sounds like a great deal.

    In fact a few people I know will actually charge as many of their monthly expenses they can to this credit card to build up enough miles to fly literally for free every time they go some place.

    Share Your Story

    Getting a dirt cheap airline ticket can be an easy thing to do if you follow the great tips I ve laid out for you here.  In fact, you can save even more if you combine all of these tips and get them cheaper yet.

    If you have used a tip I gave in this article or would like to share your own feel free to leave a comment and share what you know.

    Vacation packages – travel, hotel and Cruise package #travel #leaders

    #travel packages

    Vacation Packages

    Vacation packages offer two or more different travel services, like flights, hotels, and car rentals together. All inclusive vacation packages offer great value, and everything is arranged for you, so you can focus on having fun! Before you sign up, find out what is included in the package and what is not.

    This is a good time to plan a vacation, because vacation packages are on offer at very attractive prices. You can get great value for your money and can book packages that may have been out of reach last year.

    Due to the economic downturn, many people are canceling their vacation plans. As a result, travel packages are being offered at bargain prices, and lots of extras are being thrown in to attract customers. Cruise packages are being offered at highly discounted rates, and air fares have also dropped, though the decreases have not been as large.

    An online search can help you to find out about cheap vacation packages being offered at holiday destinations of your choice. You can book some of the best hotel packages and honeymoon packages at a fraction of their usual price.

    The Internet has made it possible for you to find out about Las Vegas vacation packages, Caribbean vacation packages, Disney vacation packages, Cancun packages, and more, with a few clicks.

    Rates for vacation packages are usually provided on a per person basis, on double occupancy. Packages designed for families include children who are under a certain age. Family vacation packages and packages for groups are usually cheaper than individual packages.

    It pays to make arrangements with a reputable travel provider, so take time to check their credentials and reputation. Compare the packages offered by different travel providers, and read the fine print before you sign up.

    Look for an affordable package that will allow you to have a good time with your family. A vacation package that costs slightly more may offer much better value than the cheapest option. Remember, you get what you pay for!

    We can help you to find vacation and hotels packages that are just right for you, based on your interests and budget. There are no charges or commitments involved at all and we will not disclose your contact details to anyone without your permission. Find out about how we can help you now!

    Health Information for Travelers to Puerto Rico (U. S. ) –

    #travel to puerto rico

    Vaccines and Medicines

    You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel.

    Get travel vaccines and medicines because there is a risk of these diseases in the country you are visiting.

    Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the US.

    You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures.

    • Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities in remote areas that put them at risk for animal bites (such as adventure travel and caving).
    • People who will be working with or around animals (such as veterinarians, wildlife professionals, and researchers).
    • People who are taking long trips or moving to remote areas in Puerto Rico
    • Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck.

This does not include the US. If you are traveling from a country other than the US, check this list to see if you may be required to get the yellow fever vaccine: Countries with risk of yellow fever virus (YFV) transmission .

    Heena Tours and Travels Incompetent staff

    I and my friend had visited Heena tours and travels office to inquire about their ladakh trip on 10th July. We were told that there were 3 people scheduled for 7 august. We spoke to the gentleman over there and after confirming that they will organise the tip for us even if we are two people. After getting all the dates verified by them we booked our airline tickets from mumbai to leh and back.

    When we went to pay the tour cost at their ghatkopar branch we were told that the tour had been cancelled. At first they refused to make travelling arrangements for us. However after some haggling they did agree.

    Just two days before only when we inquired about our travel arrangements they said that they would be unable to make the arrangements for us.

    My friend and I have suffered a huge loss because of them as we had to cancel our airline tickets. They had also deposited our cheque which was cleared by the bank. They provided a lame excuse that there is curfew in Ladakh. Every one knows that inspite of the upheaveal in Kashmir Ladakh never has a curfew. We called up the hotels over there and had inquired. Though they returned the money. we had to suffer a huge loss due to the cancellation of the air tickets.

    I would not recommend anyone to travel by heena tours and Travels. They have a very incompetent staff who are not aware about the tours being conducted. They just know how to provide lame excuses and to pull wool over people s eyes.

    Gulliver – s Travels #travel #sites

    #gulliver travel

    Gulliver s Travels

    I am still on the classics kick as you can see! After the mammoth Bleak House, I thought the relatively slim Gulliver s Travels would be a cakewalk. Not true at all! In some ways, this was a more challenging read.

    Anyway, on to the synopsis

    Gulliver s Travels really is a compilation of 4 different journeys:

    • Journey to Liiliput
    • Journey to Brobdingnag
    • Journey to Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Gluggdubdrib and Japan
    • Journey to the land of the Houyhnhnms

    Lilliput: This is the most popular story, and one that I read (an abridged version) in childhood. Of course at that time, the satire went completely over my head. This time, things were a lot more understandable. In this story, Gulliver gets shipwrecked onto an island occupied by miniature people. These people are very similar to our own with the same vices we have. And Swift uses these people as a mirror to highlight our own follies (focusing primarily on politics and kings).

    Brobdingnag: In this second voyage, Gulliver is shipwrecked onto an island occupied by giants. At first, he is contemptuous of them, thinking them an ugly race, but as he spends more time, he begins to appreciate the king and his government. The king and Gulliver have long discourses together comparing their ways of living and Gulliver comes away feeling embarrassed about England and it s government.

    Laputa, Balnibarbi, Luggnagg, Gluggdubdrib and Japan: I found this book the weakest among all the books. It was all too fantastical for me a floating island, a race of immortal people, servants of ghouls there was just a bit too much squeezed into this section for my taste. In addition, Swift uses this journey to satirize scientists who are always working on impractical discoveries. Somehow, this section was not really convincing. I mean, if scientists did not spend time and money trying to invent new things, then how would the human race have actually grown so much so fast?

    Houyhnhnms: This is probably the most savage and the most pessimistic of his journeys. In this journey, Gulliver finds to his amazement that men have degenerated into savages (called Yahoos) and are now being ruled by an intelligent and benevolent race called the Houyhnhnms (who are horses that have evolved into intelligent beings). Gulliver is devastated to find out this degeneration and after several discourses with his master Houyhnhnm, he decides he wants to continue living with them. Unfortunately for him, he is not one of them, and is soon asked to leave. He returns home and struggles to re-adjust himself to mankind s treacherous, lying ways.

    My thoughts on the book

    First up, I want to say that I found Swift s language and grammar rather difficult to adjust to. He had an unfortunate habit of inappropriately (at least in today s English usage) capitalizing words right in the middle of sentences. An example is the opening sentence of this book:

    I hope you will be ready to own publicly, whenever you shall be called to it, that by your great and frequent Urgency you prevailed on me to publish a very loose and uncorrect Account of my Travels; with Direction to hire some young Gentlemen of either University to put them in Order, and correct the Style, as my Cousin Dampier did by my Advice, in his Book called, A Voyage round the World.

    Oh, and did I mention he was verbose? It took some time to get used to such a style, but was able to ignore it once the story starts to get going.

    Another thing that bothered me was his use of satire. I generally prefer humor to be more subtle. In many places, it felt that Swift was using a hammer to convey his point when a sharp prod of a knitting needle would have been more effective. In places, his jokes are vulgar and gross too.

    I was also expecting some kind of adventures in the book, and although he does have adventures, the focus is really on the dialogues and there are pages and pages of extremely pessimistic dialogues :(. Reading this book made me feel that Swift must really be quite a misanthrope, and that does not really suit me.

    But in spite of it all, I think this is a book that people should read. It s not easy reading, but he does make some good points that I can appreciate, and I can understand why this book is termed a Classic . In spite of my negative points on this book, I am glad I read it

    Btw, it s so cool that two words which are commonly used today probably originate from this book:

    • Lilliputian is now a word that is used to refer to something that is small.
    • Yahoo is now slang used to refer to uncouth people living in remote places.

    Isn t that so cool?

    Same-sex couples in Portugal will soon be able to legally adopt children, after the newly elected Parliament endorsed legislation that has been introduced four times in the past three years. All left-leaning political parties backed the legislation on its first reading, as did roughly 20 deputies from the nation’s center-right Social Democratic Party, according to Agence France Presse.

    Tasmania’s lower house has become the third state parliament to show support for same-sex marriage. Late on 18 November a majority, 15 votes, of the House of Assembly backed a Greens party motion for in-principle support for marriage equality. Liberal premier Will Hodgman and deputy Jeremy Rockliff were among the government MPs who voted in favour of the motion at the end of a three-hour debate.

    LGBT rights defenders reasonably compromising on gay rights legislation with conservative church leaders. A church ban on baptism of children of same-sex couples. A judge removing an infant from her same-sex foster parents — until child services objected and a Republican governor frowned, leading to a quick reversal.

    Despite this year’s Supreme Court’s ruling striking down bans on same-sex marriage, LGBT leaders are warning that a backlash against gay rights is coming. The Court’s ruling, which guarantees gays and lesbians to right to wed, has been met with efforts to protest those protections.

    Revelers from all over the world touched down in Rio de Janeiro this past weekend for the 20th anniversary of the LGBT Pride parade, and from the looks of these photos, the event was as epic as ever. The 2015 festivities began with a poignant tribute to the victims of recently attacks in Paris, as well as those who died after two dams burst and caused a mudslide in southeastern Brazil earlier this month.

    Members and supporters of the LGBT community participated in a ‘Pride March’ rally in Bangalore, India. Gay rights supporters waved flags and danced past traffic during the march to celebrate gay pride and to push for the repeal of a colonial-era law that makes homosexuality a crime.

    Gay Dominican Republic Guide – Gay Bars & Clubs, Hotels, Reviews

    #travel replublic

    Dominican Republic

    The Dominican Republic is a beautiful country in the Caribbean where African, Spanish, European, and native cultures collide!

    Gay Dominican Republic

    The Dominican Republic is a beautiful country in the Caribbean where African, Spanish, European, and native cultures collide! This wonderful fusion comes across in its cuisine that will make your mouth water, as well as in the passion-filled beats of its merengue music. With a thriving ecotourism industry, there are tons of beautiful and natural sights to see. When night falls, hit the dance floor and bust a move at one of the various bars and clubs peppered across the urban parts of the country. Salsa, anyone?

    Because of it s location in the Caribbean, the Dominican Republic s climate is tropical, with a heavy wet season in winter and warm summers peaking in the month of August. Hurricanes hit the D.R between August and October- and cyclones hit every few years so be sure to check weather reports before your travels! Temperatures are pretty consistent year-round, but lows in the 30 s aren t uncommon in the mountainous regions of the country. Getting around the Dominican Republic is most often done by bus. Independent companies offer services within and between most towns and cities, although the gua-gua taxis and local buses are often packed with people and luggage so get ready to squeeze!

    Drivers are friendly and knowledgeable with inside scoop about local hotspots. Because of its location on an island, the Dominican Republic must be accessed by boat or plane. Although it is frequented by tourists, it is also rampant with poverty so stick in groups and stay in well-lit areas. There is no limit to the amount of alcohol you can consume before driving- so beware of drivers under the influence while you are on the road. There is also a special tourist police specifically for the protection of foreigners, so reach out to this agency instead of the national police for more responsive service.

    Frommer – s – Best Places to Go in 2015 #travel

    #best places to travel

    In June 2014, UNESCO World Heritage put the Selous Game Reserve on the list of World Heritage sites that are most endangered. Why would a reserve ever be considered at risk? Because at more than 19,000 square miles, the area is impossible to seal against poachers. Elephant and rhinoceros populations have plummeted 90 percent—90 percent! —since 1982. A third of Selous’ elephants, or 25,000 animals, were killed between 2009 and 2013 alone.

    The slaughter has been so unsustainable, it is now predicted that elephants will be close to extinction in Sub-Saharan Africa within 10 years, and by 2018, rhino deaths will surpass rhino births, making extinction a mathematical certainty. This qualifies Selous as the most depressing “get there now” Top Destinations designee we’ve ever named.

    “Send him to Belize “. That was the euphemistic advice given to lead character Walter White in the final season of TV’s Breaking Bad by his lawyer Saul, who felt that Walt should bump off his cop brother-in-law. Immediately after the episode aired, the Belize Tourism Board issued an invitation to the cast for all-expense paid vacations.

    Since Belize has far more Mayan sites, its a better choice for the traveler who wants to mix culture and history in with their green time. Over the course of a week, you might find yourself scaling ancient Mayan pyramids or swimming into caves once used by the Mayans for ceremonies. In the Actun Tunichil Muknal  cave in the Cayo region, centruies-old pots and the skulls of victims of ritual sacrifices have been calcified to the floor. (So it turns out an ancient Walter White actually did send someone to Belize.) Prime dving and snorkeling spots also give his tiny country a thriving beach culture—the opening image for this year’s slideshow was taken in Belize.

    For the adventure traveler, there are few countries as satisfying or as suprisingly beautiful as Belize, so visit it before the rest of the world realizes what it’s missing.

    Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming, Montana and Idaho, U.S.A.

    It’s no secret that Yellowstone is one of the most awe-inspiring places to visit in the United States. But in 2015 and 2016, vacationing here will be a more comfortable, contemporary experience. That’s because the Park’s hospitality facilities are undergoing a major overhaul to the tune of $134 million in renovations and new builds. The historic Lake Yellowstone Hotel (designed by Robert Reamer, the man behind the Old Faithful Inn) has been restored to its Colonial Revival grandeur. Meanswhile, ecologically sound, Western-chic lodges are being erected where the dingy, 1960’s era Canyon Lodges and cabins used to be. The modular units are being fabricated in Boise and trucked in by summer, so construction noise and disruption should be minimal.

    And finally, now there’s a new reason to go in winter, too. Revised regulations allow one group per day to snowmobile into the park without hiring a guide, which lowers touring costs dramatically.

    People who are looking into taking out buy to let mortgages are increasingly switching away from trying to buy property at the high end of the market. Instead it now appears that they are focusing on buying cheaper property because of the higher returns that they could potentially see on rent levels.

    #single travel groups

    Find my Classic Journey

    Solo vacations in the best of companies

    Classic Journeys welcomes solo travel on all of our tours. In fact, on average about a third of our guests travel on their own. If your goal is to experience the life and culture of the places you visit, you re already one of us and you ll find yourself in the congenial company of others who look at the world like you do.

    Let s get that single supplement out of the way.

    Admit it. Once you find the perfect trip, you ve learned that you can t get emotionally involved until you check out the single supplement. Then here s the best news! To encourage solo travel, tours from Classic Journeys have the lowest single supplements you re likely to find anywhere. While some companies boost prices up to 50% for single travelers, we keep it to just 15% on average. We only pass along the extra cost hotels charge us, instead of marking it up to make extra profit from you.

    For starters, you already have a friend on tour. Our local guides are with you full time to watch out for everyone s needs and interests. At the fine restaurants we select, you won t find yourself at a table for one. And, as often as possible, the accommodations we arrange for you are doubles for single use so that you can have as much elbow room as everyone else. Of course, at your request, we ll invite another solo traveler on the tour to share accommodations with you.

    Join us for a one-of-a-kind tour.

    If you re planning a solo vacation of your own (but don t see yourself on a singles vacation ), give us a call. We ll be happy to give you one-to-one answers about the tour you re considering.
