Safety and Security

Like anywhere within the world, major towns have areas safer than others, use sense, be aware of your surroundings and mind your personal stuff.

Many national governments provide a frequently updated advice service on questions of safety involved in international travel. We recommend that you simply check your government’s advice for his or her latest travel information before departure. It’s recommended to use a belt or neck wallet while traveling, for the safe keeping of your passport, air tickets, travelers’ cheques, cash, and other valuable items. Leave your valuable jewelry reception – you will not need it while traveling. Many of the hotels we use have safety deposit boxes, which is that the most secure way of storing your valuables. A lock is suggested to keep your luggage secured. When traveling on a group trip, please note that your guide has the authority to amend or cancel any part of the trip itinerary if it’s deemed necessary thanks to safety concerns. Your guide will be with you on all included activities. During your tour, you’ll have some extra time to pursue your own interests, relax and take it easy or explore at your leisure. Please note that any optional activities you undertake aren’t part of your itinerary and that we offer no representations about the safety of the activity or the quality of the operators running them. Please use your own logic when selecting an activity in your free time. The cities visited on the road are generally safe during the day. However, there are often risks to wandering throughout any major city in the dark. it’s our recommendation to remain in small groups and to require taxis to and from restaurants, or during nighttime excursions.

Protests and Demonstrations: Protests and demonstrations, even people who are well intended, have the potential to show violence with no warning. Counter protests also can turn violent and security forces may disperse demonstrators and protesters at any time. If you’re in a neighborhood where demonstrators or protesters are gathering, avoid the temptation of staying for a good photo op and leave the place immediately.

Water-based activities have a component of danger and excitement built into them. We recommend only participating in water-based activities when amid a guide(s). We do our best to make sure the fun and adventurous element of any water based activities (in countries with varying degrees of operating standards) have a balanced approach to safety. it’s our policy to not allow our tour guides to form arrangements on your behalf for water-based activities that aren’t amid guide(s). Swimming, including snorkeling, is usually at your own risk.
