Terms & Policies



This exclusive opportunity is open to NPCA members and their guests only (don't worry: it's free to be a member of NPCA!). You'll submit your contact information and make the initial deposit. You will receive a confirmation email with an additional registration form attached and instructions on where to submit it.


The trip deposit is non-refundable. The following schedule applies for refunds:

  • 25% non-refundable 120 days or more prior to departure
  • 50% non-refundable 119 to 90 days prior to departure
  • 75% non-refundable 89 to 60 days prior to departure
  • 100% non-refundable 59 days or less prior to departure

If a traveler leaves the trip for any reason after it has commenced, we are not obligated to make any refunds for unused services. If a travelers fails to join a tour, join it after departure, or leave it prior to its completion, no refund will be made. 


Upon arrival, you will be met by a representative of the tour operator or NPCA. Once the whole group has arrived, the tour will commence. If you arrive a day or more earlier, you may be required to find your way to a designated meet-up point. 


Hotels will be mostly 3 star quality. You can expect what you normally would from hotels of this caliber. Transport will often be in a private bus or private van of some kind.


While the tours themselves are not very strenuous, please note that they can involve the following: somewhat long days, a good amount of walking (sometimes with luggage - for this reason it is recommended to pack light - and sometimes up and down varied elevations or over uneven surfaces), being in the sun in potentially hot temperatures, long journeys by bus or train (including overnight trips), early morning wake-ups and other similarly challenging scenarios. If you have any medical conditions, there will be opportunity for you to make us aware of them, and than we can determine if the trip is appropriate for you.
