Payment

Once you submit a booking form we'll be back in touch to confirm your booking and will issue an invoice with payment instructions and options. For our longer scheduled departure tours you will be required to make a deposit of 300USD per person to guarantee your place on the tour. We advise to make this payment promptly as your place can only be guaranteed once we have received your deposit. The balance of the trip price must be paid 60 days prior to the tour departure date. If booking within 60 days prior to the tour departure date the full amount must be paid. For short tours, day tours, custom tours and other services payment must be made in full. All our tours are priced in U.S. dollars. Payments may be made in other selected currencies and we will calculate the exchange rate at the time of issuing your invoice.
