general info

Possible start of the journey
For our multi-stage tours, we recommend arriving at the weekend, as experience has shown that availability is then highest.

Holidays Major events
You should book a trip during the holiday weeks, to wine and street festivals or other major events in good time. There may be a surcharge, minimum nights or changes in the program.

Meals Half board Packed lunches
The travel price includes the corresponding rich breakfast for each night of our travel programs. Additional nights and extensions are also included breakfast.

The booking of half board and also packed lunches is possible via the item "Additional services accommodation".

Our tip
Book the packed lunch right away. So you are well equipped during your hikes and independent of the few refreshments at the edge of the trail and their opening hours.

Additional nights Extensions
You can arrive earlier or extend your vacation afterwards. You can reserve additional nights as a pre- or post-night stay when booking your trip. Should you wish to stay one more night in a location during your trip, please let us know using the comment field of your booking or give us a call.

Bed tax Guest tax
We would like to point out that some cities levy a culture tax or bed tax. The fees will be collected directly at your accommodation.

List of accommodation
Specific accommodation names are not available prior to a fixed booking. The background to this is the possibility of daily arrival, which for us excludes the purchase of fixed room quotas. In addition, we work together with several accommodation partners per location – always matching the respective theme of the trip and the requirements of the individual booking.

Special food and accommodation
Necessary requests for special dietary or allergy-prone nutrition or physical limitations are communicated to our service partners with the fixed booking without obligation.

Short-term travel requests
Even short-term travel requests require a binding booking, as otherwise availabilities cannot be queried. If the trip is not possible due to a lack of availability, we will provide you with an alternative offer upon request. If you do not wish this, your booking will be canceled free of charge.

Invoice
A booking confirmation / invoice is issued to the travel applicant for each booking. If you are traveling as a group, but would like separate invoices, please make separate bookings, stating a group name. Subsequent splitting of processes and invoices is not technically possible.

Payment
The down payment is 30% of the travel price plus insurance premium (if travel insurance is also taken out) after receipt of the booking confirmation. The remaining payment is due four weeks before the start of the journey. For bookings less than 6 weeks before the start of the journey, the entire travel price is due immediately.

Travel documents
The travel applicant receives the travel documents and the service vouchers for all travel participants by post approx. 14 days before arrival - provided that the travel price has been paid in full. One set of travel documents is created for each room. This includes: a detailed day-to-day travel description, the hotel list with addresses and check-in information, maps with further tips for visiting and sightseeing, city and local maps, as well as recommendations for places to stop and an emergency contact list. In the case of short-term bookings and a foreign address, we will store the complete travel documents in your first hotel. You will receive the exact travel description including the hotel list in advance by email.

Travel insurance
We recommend that you take out travel insurance including travel cancellation, interruption, rebooking fees and luggage insurance. You can find further information on this under the item "explanations" "Travel Insurance" on our homepage.
