We are confident that you will find the accommodation on tour a highlight of your trip. In the larger towns and tourist centres where the tourism infrastructure is well developed we use a range of supremely comfortable and stylish hotels, in the 3 to 5 star range. In out of the way places, as the nature of these areas dictates, we use the best available accommodation which is always clean and comes with air-conditioning and attached bathroom, the exception being home-stays where facilities are shared.
Please note that, while we endeavour to use the hotels listed below, occasionally for reasons of availability, we are required to book alternative accommodation. In such cases the hotel provided will be of an equal or higher standard than the one we usually use.
