Tour's Location


Why are your tours so expensive?
We don't feel our tours are expensive...we include loads of attractions and meals that most other companies do not, making Travelling Time's tours exceptional value for money! If you compare like for like you will see what we mean.
What is your cancellation policy?
Our deposits of £200pp are non- refundable. However under certain circumstances your deposit can be moved to a different date or tour (Subject to certain conditions) As a rule of thumb - If you have to cancel after your balance is paid, unfortunately this means you will have lost your money - as all of our suppliers will have been paid. Our full terms and conditions can bee found on the "About Us" page.
Will you send paperwork to us?
As soon as you book, you will receive paperwork relating to your tour booking. Confirmations, Receipts, ATOL Certificates etc. After your balance is paid, a further receipt and information form will be sent out to you. Then about 4 weeks prior to the tour, you will be sent a pack containing all your travel documents and a full itinerary.
