The Fine Print 

The above rate includes all meals except for one independent lunch. Most activities are also included in the base price; optional excursions will be available for an additional cost. 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. Airfare is not included in the total, and attendees are responsible for booking their own flights.
