What forms of payment do you accept?

Where can I find out the current dates and prices for the schools?

Most programs have the dates and prices listed on its own page. For those programs that don't have dates, please inquire, as they are more flexible in accommodating your requested time of travel.

What is included in the price?

At the bottom of each vacation page, you will find a paragraph detailing what is and is not included in the vacation (i.e. airfare).

Do I need to tip?

In general, tips and gratuities are included in the package, unless otherwise noted. When on your own before or after the program, in Italy for example, you don’t need to leave tips but can leave an extra 5% to 10%; small tips to hotel staff are appreciated – 1 Euro per day for chambermaids, a few Euros for bellhops, doormen calling a cab, 50 cents.  Taxis are happy with 5%-10%.

"Thank you so much for organising what turned out to be the holiday of a lifetime. Everything was first class from the luxury accommodation and transportation to our fantastic tour guides and spectacular excursions. While we went without a true understanding of Peruvian cuisine, we were blown away by the variety and quality of the produce and techniques used in the restaurants selected for us. We are already looking on the website for our next destination!" - Brenda A. and Lynne A., Glasgow, Scotland
