When a guide is provided for an extended period, more than one day, then you as the hirer are responsible, at your expense, for accommodation and meals, on a demi-pension basis, for our guide.
However we are able to arrange guides in most other European countries, these will be supplied through our contacts with Tourist Information Offices across Europe.
