5 If I join in a group, what is the maximum group size?
You're probably wondering about the people with whom you'll share your adventure. Chances are, they're a lot like you. Our guests include families, couples, friends, and solo travelers from all walks of life. Spirited travelers, they share a passion for our wonderful world. They range in age from their late 20s to mid-70s, reminding us all that you can never be too young or too old to have fun!
While you're here, let us dispel any misconceptions you may have about "group travel." Our groups are intentionally kept small - usually less than 10 people for mountain bike trip and les than 14 people with road bike - so you will not feel herded around. The guides often have very close ties to the local community and we are readily welcomed into the lives of the local folk.
6 Can I request to have more activities (like trekking or walking) if the trip features only normal ones?
Yes, you can if it is your private trip (everything is private like: private transport, private guide, etc) but in case you are joining in group, it is better if you make an extension tour later.
7 What will our accommodation be like?
Since our groups never have more than 10 travelers, we stay in small, authentic accommodations that can't take large tour groups. Marco Polo offers basic amenities and simple comforts with an emphasis on the character of your destination because it depends on the place you are staying in each destination, home-stay or small hotels. But actually, the hotels in our programs are 2-3 star ones with standard and deluxe rooms. If you choose a basic tour, you will share in a twin-room.
8 How can I earn FREE TRAVEL with Marco Polo ?
It begins with your enthusiasm for travel. Simply gather 10 paying travelers to join you on the same adventure, and as the 11th passenger, you travel FREE. If you bring 8-9 friends, then you'll receive 50% off your group's average ticketed price for yourself.
9 Do I receive any benefit if I refer new travelers to Marco Polo ?
Yes. When you refer new travelers, you become one of our partners and earn $50 per person for each traveler who travels with us.
10 Does Marco Polo Travel provide a solo trip (or private trip) with an affordable rate?
Yes, we always organize private trips at the customers' discretion, for example, cycling all days, bike or bike tours, etc. Regardless of private adventure cycling or classical cycling, they are not too expensive for you to afford. That's for sure!
11 I have just glanced over your website and found that your tours are affordable so why you can provide such reasonable trips?

14 Can I return from the trip later than the scheduled return date?

You will be responsible for confirming your international flight back to your country and for your own transfers to the airport. Confirmation will be available approximately 45 days before your departure.
