Single room accommodation (with no supplement) in comfortable, clean and central locations is included, complete with private bathroom and free WiFi.

All breakfast and dinner meals, airport transfers and transport each day are provided and included in our costs. Lunch meals however, are to be paid by each guest based on their preferred meal choice on the day.
