Accommodation & Meals

All accommodation - 14 camping, 2 hotel, 2 hostel & 2 apartment nights.

On our camping tours, our groups share in the preparation and cooking of the food. Supplies, excluding soft drinks and alcohol, are purchased from the food kitty, and each member of the group pays US$10 per day en route. This covers three meals on most days while we are camping; eating fresh foods that we purchase as we travel to satisfy the international flavour of the group - a healthy way to travel at an unbeatable price. Naturally this does not cover hotel stops or when tour groups sometimes sample regional cuisine at local restaurants.

Eligibility & FAQ's

Minimum age is 18 years. Maximum age is 38 years.

How Much Money Do I Need To Bring On The Tour?

For camping tours you will need to budget for the food kitty. This is usually US$10 a day however see individual tour pages for specific details. This will cover all of your meals while camping but does not cover meals during hotel stops or when the group chooses to sample regional cuisine. Depending on the tour you choose, there may be en-route hotel nights paid locally and the cost will be shown on the itinerary. You should budget for each of these night stops. We recommend you take at least US$40/CAN$40 dollars per day to budget for your optional activities and snacks along the way on all our North American Treks. This does not include money for food kitty and en route hotel expenses. We suggest you bring US $150 with you in cash. ATM’s and cash machines are readily available throughout North America and major credit cards are widely accepted throughout the country. Traveller’s checks are accepted and can be a safe way to take your funds but aren’t always the most practical. In some off the beaten track destinations ATM’s and cash machines may be limited. Credit card payment can’t be accepted for food kitty and enroute hotel payments.

Do I Need To Tip?

Although it may not be customary in your country, it is normal and expected in North America to tip waiters, bar staff, any type of guide and taxi drivers. Service workers are paid a low wage and depend upon their tips for their livelihood. A minimum of 15% is standard in restaurants. Your tour leader works long and hard for you. He or she may well become your close friend during the tour, but they also need to pay their bills. If the leader's performance meets or exceeds your expectations we recommend a tip of US $5 per person, per day.

Any other comments?

The camping aspect of the trip really brought the group close quickly and we all chipped in cooking and cleaning. Camp fires and marshmallows are a must! Do all the extras you can afford and don't waste money if theres one you don't particularly want to do - budget! Spend more time in NYC if you can and fit in.

Any other comments?

Trip needs to be longer to incorporate days of travelling. Too little time spent in all the good places e.g. cowboy ranch. Too long spent in other places such as New Orleans. Good tour, too much travelling though.

What were the highlights of your trip?

Washington DC was really interesting, New Orleans was really fun, white water rafting was great, the cowboy ranch and horseriding was great too. Pretty much the whole trip was a highlight.

Is there anything else you would have liked to have added to your itinerary?

On days where there is a lot of driving it would have been good to have done/seen something on the way. An extra day or two would be good on the trip so we could see NYC and LA as I never had chance to see these cities.

Any other comments?

I would love to do another trip. I enjoyed being in such a small group with just 6 of us. If I was to go again could that be arranged? I think 13 is quite a big group and I'm not sure I would enjoy the experience as much with so many people.
