Answer - What is the difference between Tour & Travel Packages, Adventure Programs and Escorted Tours?
  

There is a significant difference between the three types of programs as follows.

 

- Tour & Travel Packages are programs we put together for our clients. Most of the time Tour & Travel Packages will include some airfares, some guided services, additional transfers, extra accommodations and other customized portions of a trip.

 

- Adventure Programs are those that can be considered "off the beaten path". These programs may not be for all travelers and normally will require most of the time good health physical conditions. Good examples of Adventure Programs are expeditions into the rain forest of the Amazon, hiking the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu or horse back riding in the Andes. These are programs that may not be for everyone and therefore are considered to be Adventure programs.

 

- Escorted Tours are group tours that include all services. A professional bi-lingual guide will accompany travelers at all times and will make sure all the logistics are in place. These programs are "as is". Add on days are possible only at the beginning or at the end of the tour.

Answer - What are Special Interest Tours?

Special Interest Tours are programs that have been designed specially for a certain segment of the traveling public. Participants on these tours normally have one goal in mind for their travel time and focus their interest on one topic. Some topics for Special Interest Tours can be Bird watching, Fishing, Herpetology, Diving, Tropical Fish Collection, Photography, Archeology, Hiking, Biking, Whale watching, etc. People signing up for these type of tours all share the same interest and are normally well versed on the topic of the tour. Latin Tours Online specializes in Special Interest Tours and almost no topic is too outrageous. Have a group of people with the same interest? Contact us and we will put it all together.

Answer - Can you arrange for International and domestic airline reservations and ticketing for the countries we will visit?
  

Yes, we will arrange all airline reservations and ticketing if so requested by our clients. We have contracts with most airlines serving South America on international flights and we also have contracts with the domestic airlines in the countries in which we offer our vacation programs.

Answer - What is included in the Tours and Packages you offer?

Under the Useful Information link in each individual program we have included a list of what is included and what is not included. These list change from program to programs as no two are alike. Make sure you understand clearly what is and what is not included in your vacation program, as you may need to bring along additional cash or credit cards (if accepted) for services not included. Your final invoice also details what is included in your program and what not.

Answer - Can I make a "hotel only" reservation?
 

No. We do not accept "hotel only" reservations. We specialize in custom designed vacations that include transportation, accommodations, transfers, sightseeing etc. Unfortunately we do not handle hotel only reservations.

Answer - Why are some tours and programs listed in more than just one category?

The reason is simple. Some of our tours and programs will be listed in several categories, cities and sometimes even in several countries, as they may fit into these each of these categories. For example: An Amazon River program combined with a program in the Cuzco and Machu Picchu area will show under cruises and also under tour and travel packages. Also, if a program covers more than one city or region or if it covers more than one country it will show in each of the cities where the program will be operated.

Answer - What should I pack for my vacation?

All our programs and packages have detailed information as to what to bring and what to pack for your vacation. This information can be found by clicking on the Useful Information link in each individual program. Of course, the items in our list are just a sample of what you can bring and in no way should you consider our list complete. Each individual has his/her own needs. Our list is just a guideline. Have suggestions for our lists? Contact us, our future clients will surely appreciate your input.

Answer - I would like to receive a brochure on the programs and services offered. Can you send me one?
 

No, we are sorry. Latin Tours Online does not produce brochures. As access to the internet has grown and most households nowadays have a connection at home, we have decided not to produce four color brochures anymore. All our tours, programs and services are fully described and detailed here in our web site where they can be up-dated quickly and where new programs can be added as desired and not only when a new brochure is printed. The substantial savings in printing cost are being passed on to our customers in the cost of their trip cost.
