the fine print
The above rate includes most meals (daily breakfast, 2 dinners, and 1 lunch). Most activities are also included in the base price; optional excursions (ie, ghost tour), spa services, and hotel upgrades are available for an additional cost. Non-included items are noted with an * in the itinerary. The base rate is based on double occupancy. Hotel room upgrades are based on availability and any upgrade charge is due once booked. We intend to use the vendors outlined in the itinerary. While we do our best to adhere to the itinerary, traveling anywhere requires flexibility, and changes to specific interactions and other activities may occur, particularly if specified vendors or activities become unavailable. In addition, some changes may occur in our itineraries due to inclement weather and changes to timetables and transport routes, which can happen with little notice. The order and timing of included activities in each location may also vary. Each day we will update you on the program and keep you informed throughout the trip. Please note that while unlikely, hotels and restaurants, while confirmed, are also subject to change due for unforeseen circumstances.
