Some have asked why this is so expensive. Well - it’s because it is expensive to fly, charter a bus, and stay in hotels… It is very true that you could probably do this trip on your own for a lower cost, for example by finding a killer internet airfare deal, using cheap airbnb lodging, and public transportation. However - none of these are options for group travel. Please know that we try to plan as frugally as possible. We do not pay a travel agent to plan our tours. Doing the planning and arranging ourselves saves at least $200 - $300/person for a state-side tour, and more for an oversees trip.

3. When is the trip?  First two weeks of June.
