It may sound obvious but…

The Gil Travel Group’s Iconic Journeys’ tours are not always for everyone! It is important to us that the tour you choose is the most suitable. Please therefore take time to read the itinerary description very carefully. This particular tour will include some rather rustic and basic travel segments. We try and make the trip as comfortable as we can with regards to accommodations and the vehicles used, but this is to be balanced with the remote area of some of the itinerary. Should you have any concerns about your ability to partake in any aspect of the tour then please contact the office.
