Tour information
Most tours are available with daily departures. We further offer several seat-in-coach tours with fixed departure dates. Since flight schedules vary from day to day, schedules of sightseeing tours may sometimes require adjustment. Although VIP tour Asia offers a selection of accommodation at various hotels, it may not always be possible to confirm accommodation as requested due to very limited room capacities during certain periods and certain parts of Asia. Alternative accommodation can in some cases be at sub-standard hotels, which lack essential facilities. No refunds can be made for any shortcomings related to accommodation there. Visa fees are not included in the tour prices. Quote is included the English speaking guide only. (French, Italian, Spanish, German, Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Russian speaking guides can also be arranged at additional cost - subject to availability).

Important notice
We further would like to advise that, because of frequent flight changes and cancellations by certain airlines and visiting places close for maintenance/ seasonal reasons, we cannot fully guarantee that the proposed itinerary can be carried out as planned if any. Based on our experience changes of departure times and/or cancellations can occur at very short notice even after confirmations for a flight have been received. Same applies for train travel - schedule changes occur frequently and sometimes without prior notification.

In case of schedule changes or flight cancellation we will always try everything human possible to arrange an alternate program within the framework of the original quoted costs. However we reserve the right to charge any cost exceeding the original budget to the tour operator/travel agent or to the participant of a tour after consultation with the agent.
