What is a “Land-only” package?
A Land-only package includes all the items listed as “tour package features” EXCEPT for air transportation, airport/hotel transfers and baggage handling.

What’s included in my price?
Your final price includes room and all hotel taxes. It does not include items such as charges for meals, parking, rollaway beds, telephone, valet and room service, or any other items of a personal nature.
What size is a triple or quad room?
A triple/quad room is the same size as a double-bedded room and beds will accommodate three or four people; but there will not be three or four separate beds. A rollaway may be requested but cannot be guaranteed due to size of room and fire codes.
What does the Child price mean?
Children’s prices are limited to those 12 years of age or under sharing a room with one or more adults and using existing bedding. For example, if the room is shared with one adult, the single rate applies as the adult’s price plus the child’s price. If the room is shared with two adults, the double rate applies as the adult’s price plus the child’s price.
