While your tour is in the planning stages, you may be working with one of our group sales account executives who will be very helpful to you in “getting the ball rolling” on the development of your itinerary and he or she will be available as needed throughout your promotion. Whether you were introduced to our company by an account executive, found us on the Internet, or were referred by a colleague or friend, your primary contact in our office will be the person who prepares your proposal and itinerary brochure. Your primary contact will also serve as the project manager for your tour throughout its promotion. Any time you need to discuss the planning or operational details of your tour, ask to speak with your primary contact or another member of the group sales team. See Group Tour Professionals for more information.
We offer a variety of payment plans with the goal of making the financial details of your tour as simple as possible. Our accounting staff can work directly with the individual group members, collecting deposits and interim payments or we can accept group payments—whichever works best for you. Depending on the payment plan you select, credit cards can be accepted for the deposit and/or payments on account.

The cultural experience, too, was very rich… I can’t imagine changing anything.
