Travel expences and accomodation costs for our guide will be added to the total price. Regarding standard of travel and accomodation it is your choice. High, medium or low cost standards can probably be arranged in most places.

Reservation on short notice: Trips can also be arranged at short notice, in such cases you must be prepared to cover all expences along the way (including car rental and accomodation for longer trips), and pay for guiding in cash, or we can accept other terms agreed upon.
