TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER
Tour Guide:
Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on the history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction where they are guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves it at the end of the tour; they do not travel with the group.
 
Tour Leader:
An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides at each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village and offer information on the place visited on the bus. However, they are not required to have specific art, architecture, or historical knowledge. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and, if caught doing so, can be fined.
 
Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when required to enhance the experience of the destination featured.
 
CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES
Croatia
Spring is a lovely time to visit Croatia as the weather starts to warm up, and the landscapes become lush and green, temperatures are between 8°C and 21°C.
Summer is the peak tourist season in Croatia due to the warm and sunny weather, particularly along the Adriatic coast with temperatures ranging from 17°C to 30°C. September is considered one of the best times to visit Croatia, as the summer crowds start to thin out, and the weather remains warm and pleasant with temperatures between 16°C to 23°C. October sees decreasing temperatures, especially in the northern and interior regions. Coastal areas may still have mild temperatures between 11°C and 18°C.
 
Albania and Montenegro
The coastal areas experience a typical Mediterranean climate, with hot, dry summers and mild, wet winters. Summers, which usually last from June to September, are generally hot and dry, with average temperatures ranging from 25°C to 30°C (77°F to 86°F). During this time, the coastal regions receive little to no rainfall. During the shoulder seasons, Albania & Montenegro experience mild and pleasant weather. These seasons are generally considered the best time to visit the country for travellers who prefer avoiding the summer crowds and extreme temperatures.

If you require wheelchair access please contact our friendly sales and service team to inquire on your behalf.
 
Fitness Level Required:
A moderate level of fitness will be required.
 
Moderate may involve more physical activity, including biking, longer day hikes or extended walking and standing, low-altitude treks, and water-based activities such as canoeing or low-grade kayaking. Guests using any walking aid other than a walking stick would be advised to reconsider as surfaces may be uneven.
 
Please note: If you have any concerns, please consult your healthcare provider prior to purchase/travel.
 
Gratuities / Tipping:
Land
Gratuities (tips) are not included for the services of the tour leader (when available) and driver throughout the tour. The recommended tip is 5 Euro per person per day. This covers the guide/leader and the driver and will be collected on tour.
Please note: Tipping for services provided is always a matter of personal discretion; however, please be aware that many locals consider tipping part of their normal remuneration, and they may approach you for payment; there's no need to be intimidated by the request.
 
Sightseeing:
Please note: If entry to a site is affected by changes in operating hours or public holiday closures, your itinerary, where possible, may be adjusted, or a similar activity will be offered in its place (subject to availability).
 
Shopping:
Shopping overseas can be a daunting and confusing experience, especially when there is a language barrier. Please be very cautious when foreign currencies and prices are involved. If paying by credit card, please pay close attention to the amount you are being charged and keep all your receipts.
Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader.
Please refer to our Terms and Conditions regarding shopping for further information.
Visas

Albania / Montenegro / Croatia
A tourist visa is not required for Albania, Montenegro & Croatia for stays up to 90 days if travelling on an Australian passport.
Important:
• Please start arranging your visa three weeks before departure to account for any delays due to consulate operating hours.
• Visa rules may have changed since Covid-19. Some countries and airlines may require you to obtain an additional visa before arrival. Please check with the nearest embassy, consulate or immigration department of the destination you're entering.
Please note:
• Passengers who are not Australian citizens must also check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required.
• It is also important to note that some areas of employment, such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations, may have additional restrictions in applying for visas. This may, in turn, affect the type of application required.
