  • The cost for twin-share of $1,795.00 per person is based on 30 passengers. Should we have less, the cost will increase, and at less than 20 passengers, the tour would have to be cancelled. At this stage we are fairly confident to have sufficient passengers.
  • The single room supplement is $420.00.
  • We will endeavour to find a person to share a room with you if you do not know anyone. However, single room rate applies if you have to occupy the room on your own. This also applies if the person you are booked to share with cancels his/her booking.
