What you pay depends on whether you are joining a group or whether you are opting for private guiding. For simplicity all our rates are in GBP.
Private guiding is for private groups or individuals employing the Guide on a daily basis for a bespoke itinerary. The fee works on a sliding scale according to the number of guests to one Guide. The fees below are for guiding only, per day. Guide expenses are not included and should be paid as you go along.

Because of variables it’s always best to confirm the rate before you make your booking.
Prices for trips appear on the trip info pages. It is important to clarify what is included in the package. Prices are normally linked to a minimum group size. Accommodation in hotels is based on twin room sharing, so if you want single occupancy rates there would be a surcharge.
