Our tours cover airfares, accommodation, ground transport, all tournaments and camps entry fees, and all group-based tourist attractions. Food, souvenirs and other incidentals etc will be at traveller’s expense.
As always, we aim to make things as cost-effective as possible. As details come together, we will know more about probable costs. We will start making bookings as early as we have required confirmed numbers.
Typically, the earlier we have our team(s) set, the sooner we can book, the better prices we can get on flights & accommodation!
