About our Package Prices

Our tour & cruise packages are a great value, because we negotiate very special wholesale rates with our suppliers based on volume purchases, which are far better than prices you could get on your own. And we make it easy for you, by bundling everything together, including most taxes and fees, into one easy price.


For most packages, we only require a deposit payment to reserve your spot. If upon receipt of your reservation, we are unable to confirm any component you selected, you may cancel your reservation and receive a full refund of your deposit, which is otherwise non-refundable.

Price Guarantee

Once we have received your reservation and confirmed all components of your package, your package price is guaranteed with two exceptions:

  • Government-imposed taxes & fees: Foreign governments may (with little or no warning) institute new or increased taxes or fees on services within their countries. This includes but is not limited to national park fees and locally-paid hotel taxes. Such changes are rare and usually small, but you may be liable for the additional fees, even if you have already paid in full. If such an increase occurs, we will notify you immediately via email.
  • Airfare: For packages that include flights, airfare is subject to change due to increases in air surcharges and/or government-imposed taxes and fees such as foreign departure taxes and airport fees, until we receive your final payment. If such an increase occurs, your package price will increase accordingly, and we will notify you immediately via email. After tickets have been issued or we receive your final payment, airfare and surcharges are no longer subject to change.

PriceLock Deposit

On some packages that include flights, we offer a special PriceLock deposit option. By paying this larger deposit, you can lock in your international airfare, vastly reducing the chance that the price of your package might increase before you make your final payment. Selecting this option doesn't increase the cost of your package, just how much you pay up-front.

Not Included

For most of our packages, unless otherwise noted, the following items are not included in the price:


All prices listed are in U.S. currency. Payments must be made in U.S. currency or a conversion fee may apply.
