Because of the fluidity of Covid-19, it is not possible to state exactly what the travel requirements will be in the next few months before our tour’s departure in April 2023. We will stay abreast of all government and CDC regulations regarding travel, vaccinations, testing, etc. that may be required.
We are hopeful that travel will look different in a year. Once we know for certain what the requirements will be for our tour you will be contacted via email, and the information will be updated here.
FLIGHT INFORMATION - WHAT WE KNOW NOW
Flight itineraries will become available in June 2022 for the April 2023 tour. Our preferred international flights will depart from and return to JFK, in New York City. As soon as the flight schedules are released, we will reserve our seats for the tour and update all flight information here.
Please note: Due to fluctuating fuel costs, the flight portion of our tour is subject to price changes. However, once the flights become available, and we reserve the seats for our tour, the flight portion will be locked in and the tour price will be adjusted accordingly. (We have estimated $2000 for roundtrip international flights, per person; your domestic flights are not included in the tour price).
& Visa Info
IMPORTANT: When you are filling out your travel documents make sure your passport name appears exactly as it does on all your travel documents prior to ticketing. Once the flight has been ticketed, name changes are not allowed. Name changes will not be processed at the airport.
