NEVER will you be expected to join in with another group nor will others be expected to join with you All our Tour Prices are per person based on two persons sharing one room. Children are subject to charges as per hotel and cruise boat rules; i.e. there is no charge for children under 2 years of age at the end of the package, and children under 12 years of age, at the end of the package, have a price reduction of 50%.
