Guaranteed Departures

Now you can plan ahead ... Great Programs! Great Prices! Guaranteed!

Our escorted guaranteed departures programs listed here will start as scheduled when they reach their minimum of 6 travellers. Generally, we will keep a tour on our calendar until 30 days before departure. If we have not received any bookings, we will cancel that date.

The main idea of our guaranteed departures trips is once we have accepted your booking, we would not want to cancel the tour.

If you have signed up and paid a deposit for two or four people and no one else has booked up 30 days before departure we will notify you and give you the option of cancelling the tour and receiving a full refund, OR of committing to the tour and accepting the small "individual" charge of maximum 170 € per person.

We are confident that you want to be sure the tour will run. This is especially true for our guests, who are coming from very far away and tend to plan well in advance. For this reason, we promise that all of our tours will run with a minimum of two people, but a small "individual fee" has to be applied depending on the tour.

This is a fair arrangement, we believe, for all concerned. We hope you agree and can appreciate our guarantee to not cancel your tour even if there are no more than two reservations!

We have selected for you great ideas, sights, places and traditions in Bulgaria along with the right season to turn your trip into a once in a lifetime travel experience!
