Booking a Single Room
On this particular tour we are pleased to be able to offer travellers the option of pre-booking a guaranteed single room. Due to the variety of accommodation used on this tour, single rooms are available for a majority of the nightstops, however it would still mean sharing on any overnight trains. All of our tours are planned and operated on a twin-share basis, meaning that the standard cost is based either on individual travellers sharing accommodation with another group member of the same sex, or people who book together sharing accommodation.
Vaccinations and Your Health
recommend that you contact your primary care physician or a travel
doctor for advice on vaccinations and travel health and we advise that
you check to see if your tetanus-diphtheria booster is still valid every
