We may often operate more than one coach per departure date. We may operate more than one group per departure or club 2 groups in one departure due to operational reasons. For the comfort and convenience of our clients, we will sometimes reverse the direction, or slightly amend the itinerary including the flight routing.

In view of this you may have to stay in hotels further away from the cities and itineraries may have to be altered / amended. Since the rooms are comparatively small, we would recommend only 3 persons in one room for your own comfort.
