Exchange Rate Notation

All costs have been calculated on exchange rates based as at 18 November 2009. While it is our aim to avoid any increases to the tour prices, such levels must remain subject to possible alteration should a deterioration occur in the Australian or New Zealand dollar and subject to minimum group size contingency.

Prepaid Tipping Fund

After countless requests from our pilgrims, wisdom has shown us the practical necessity to request a prepaid tipping fund for the convenience of pilgrims.

Based on destinational influences and trip duration, the standard tipping expectations for each country’s guides, drivers and porters have been carefully considered resulting in the amounts listed under each tour. Your group co-ordinator will receive the total amount paid and distribute according to our guidelines. The implementation of this scheme immediately removes the otherwise regular interruptions, demands and potential awkwardness on tour with this standard travel practice, while maintaining our control and quality of the important aspects of our service providers.
