APRIL'S TRAVEL TIP TOPIC: Travel Insurance
Yes! All US citizens must have a passport that remains valid 6 months beyond the dates of your trip. All non-US citizens must check with their local consulate for documentation requirements. If you do not have a passport, one may be obtained through your local post office, which also offers expedited processing. ALL NAMES PROVIDED TO TENON TOURS MUST BE AS THEY APPEAR ON YOUR PASSPORT (first and last names only). You may want to make a copy of your passport and leave it at home with a friend of family.
Yes! For each door-to-door transfer with a driver or day tour with a tour guide (such as on our optional tours) it is customary to tip between 2 to 5 Euros or Pounds per person, per transfer based on the service and information provided by your driver and/or guide. No tipping is required for drivers of scheduled/public transfers.
Typically, check-in is 3:00pm, although many places will allow you to check in earlier once rooms have been cleaned and inspected. Luggage can be stored in a secure area for early arrivals.
Play it safe and plan to arrive 2.5 to 3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time to allow for any unexpected delays in traffic, check-in, security, or long lines at the newsstand!
It is important to note that European hotel rooms generally tend to be smaller than North American hotel rooms.
For your hotel room you can choose to have:
Double– One bed for two people (usually Queen size, sometimes Double/Full. King only by request and not always guaranteed).
Twin– Two separate beds (can be two Single beds, two Double/Full, one Single & one Double/Full, etc…)
Triple– Two beds to sleep three people. Rarely will there be three separate beds. (Normally you will find a Double/Full bed and one twin bed for a total of 2 beds. Sometimes you may find two Double/Full or three Single beds, but it is rare.) Please note there is no reduction in cost for a third person sharing a room with two others. For comfort, we suggest that three adults take two separate rooms.
Twin and Triple Room configurations will be assigned based on hotel availability at the time of check-in.
Note: No more than three people can share a hotel room on escorted tours.
