Before you Book
We carefully curate all of our tours, and because they are unique, completely custom, and stress-free experiences, we can’t guarantee future tour dates—so we recommend booking ASAP in order to secure your spot. Once they’re full, we’re very sorry no exceptions can be made.
We run retreats based on a minimum occupancy of 8 females to maximum 10-12 depending on the retreat. We take pride in keepings our group sizes low so, you have the freedom to move as well as enjoy more one-on-one personal attention from our guides.
Because we confirm our tours in advance, and only offer 12 spots on the tours, we do require an upfront deposit to secure your spot, and it is non-refundable upon payment.
Each of our tours has different costs and therefore offers a unique payment plan. If you are unable to pay the full amount upfront, we offer a 3 payment plan consisting of a deposit and two equal payments prior to the tour. This is subject to change depending on the tour cost and date of booking, but the information will be provided to you prior to booking.
The cost of airfare is not included in the tour price. You are responsible for your own transportation to and from start and end destinations of the tour.
We are able to accommodate requests for vegetarian, gluten-free and dairy-free diets as well as food allergies. Please keep in mind that we are dining at restaurants most of the time. We cater to dietary requirements to our best ability and always communicate and confirm in advance, but we don’t always have control over what food is being supplied or is available. We ask the tour participants to please also be mindful of your own dietary requirements when ordering at restaurants and to carry snacks (if needed) to avoid disappointment. There may be times that we are traveling in remote areas and such dietary requirements cannot be met.
All our tours are based on double occupancy rooms in separate beds. Besides our Bali Retreat each female will have her own room.
What to expect on each tour?
Our team will organize an airport transfer to get you to the specific accommodation the tour starts from.
Check-in times vary from accommodation to accommodation. We will be sure to let you know prior to departure.
Yes of course! Paige will keep you posted about places & times to keep your clothes clean & fresh!
You would need your passport and you will need to present them with your arriving plane ticket. Please be sure that your passport name matches your airline ticket name or you may be denied boarding. If you require a visa, you will need that to show customs as well. Your passport’s expiration date must be at least six months after your return from your trip; if it is not, you should renew your passport. As always, check your country’s travel requirements when visiting a new country.
Should any vaccinations be required for a tour, we will advise retreat attendees as far in advance as possible.
We always recommend packing as light as possible and prepare to dress in layers. However, the specific recommendations for a tour will vary widely depending on where and when you are traveling. We will send out a detailed packing list to all tour participants prior to any given tour based upon the experience of our ground staff.
We suggest limiting your packing to (1) suitcase and (1) backpack or carry-on. You’ll also want a day bag or backpack to carry whatever items you want on days out exploring. You are responsible for carrying your bags on and off buses and trains, and up and down hotel staircases, so pack smart and light. Sidenote: Please make sure you are aware of the baggage allowances that apply to your airline ticket(s).
All activities on our tours are optional, so we always recommend taking personal time when needed. However, if you would like more time in our start or end cities, we advise that you arrive early or plan to stay after the tour to explore. Additionally, we are more than happy to help with itinerary suggestions if you plan to explore beyond the tour itinerary!
We will advise all participants how much spending money is needed and/or recommended, as the amount will vary depending on your destination. spare cash is solely for personal expenditures & food such as occasional dinners, snacks, souvenirs, and expenses for your personal enjoyment.
We recommend having access to money from a variety of sources – cash, a debit card, and a credit card is advisable. You can pull out some cash at the ATM in the airport or make sure to bring a travel credit card (we recommend one with 0% foreign transaction fees).
Your tour cost includes a tip for all drivers, hosts, and guides along the tour. However, if you feel that a guide or driver has provided you with “above and beyond” service or assistance, you’re more than welcome to offer them an additional tip.
