General price policy: 

Tour prices get cheaper and cheaper as group size gets bigger and bigger. More people traveling together will reduce the prices

Staying in three starred hotels will reduce tour prices significantly, as accommodation accounts for a big share of total costs. We generally use hotels from three stars upwards.

Meals can be selected based on bread& breakfast; half board or full board. It is quite cheaper if you let us take care of your meals. However you can take a half board basis to experience the cuisine yourself.

The more sights you visit, the more tickets are bought and the more miles are run.

Selecting to travel in high seasons is generally 15-25% more expensive than in low seasons. However if you book a tour well in advance you will get rid of the risk
