Q3. Why are dinners not included in all locations?

We would recommend downloading all your important documents eg. Maps, etc to your phone in case you can’t access WiFi or the internet while out on the trails.

Once you book, if you need to postpone your trip, you can only change your travel dates.
If you need to make further changes to your itinerary you will need to pay an extra cost.
