    Please note that we ask all guests to arrive at the tour meeting point at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time of their tour. If you have difficulty finding the meeting point or are delayed along the way, please call the emergency phone number, we will tell the number to the guests in advance for each tour.
  • How far in advance should I book my tour?
    It’s hard to say and differs from one tour to another. We would recommend booking as soon as you can. If you are cruise ship passenger and want to do private tour, please contact us as soon as you can. It is because many passengers arrive at the port at once.

    Please do get in touch with us before you book. However, please be aware that guests are responsible for propelling their own wheelchairs – guides will be unable to do this.

    No. Please let us know where you need travel arrangements. We have many partners in other area. We will make our best effort.

  • After Reservation
  • Do I need to print my confirmation letter?
    We strongly encourage you to print your confirmation letter, mostly because it contains meeting point directions. It also contains our emergency contact number. However , so long as you have these details to hand, having your confirmation letter isn’t required to join the group, our guide will have your name anyway.
  • Should I tip my guide?
    It’s really up to you. If you enjoyed your tour and feel like you received excellent service from your guide, it is customary to leave a tip at the end of the tour. It’s not obligatory though and we won’t hold it against you if you don’t – nor will your guide.

    We accept PayPal and credit card payment via VISA Card  and Master Card. The tour fare shall be paid by PayPal or credit card no later than the 14th day prior to the tour. When booking is made on or after the 14th day prior to the tour, the tour fare shall be paid by Paypal or credit card by a date designated by us.

    We ask that all customers bring your passport and your confirmation email. For all tours, we would recommend that you wear comfortable shoes. If you’re visiting in summer (Jun – Sep) we recommend that you bring sunscreen, a bottle of water (which you can refill along the way on most tours) and a hat.
