Frequently Asked Questions

For you to have a clear picture of your tour service choices that we provide within our ‘Travel Plans’ and how to go about extending these plans into your own custom trip, you will find the main characteristics of each of the options we provide listed within each of our Travel Offers. However here we present a quick reference guide to our service choices below. 

ARE HOTELS INCLUDED?

The answer is that this depends. By  “rule of thumb”, whenever we offer a set date toward a multi-day tour, hotels will be included. However, when you are given a choice to select your own tour dates for any service, within our private tour options, the hotels will only be included manually a Custom Private Tour Service. We need to offer this one manually unless you find a session within the independent hotel offer section that matches your ‘Travel Plan’ and prefered tour dates.

HOW DO WE BOOK FOR A LARGE GROUP?

Choices are given to plan any tour for any group size in our  Custom Private Tour form we will respond usually within 24-48 h with an initial detailed travel plan and quotation completely ready for you to confirm all bookings or make any convenient changes before booking.

HOW DO WE BOOK FOR A SMALLER & COZY GROUP?

Choices are given to plan any tour for any group size in our  Custom Private Tour form we, simply choose the ‘Courtesy Economy’ option available for groups under 6 total participants. We will respond usually within 24-48 h with an initial detailed travel plan and quotation completely ready for you to confirm all bookings or make any convenient changes before booking.

CAN A SMALLER GROUP JOIN A LARGER GROUP?

Yes, you may book any number of travellers into our ‘Regular Group Tours’ and thereby be joining onto a larger group to our own agenda. Once the group is confirmed at a minimum 15 participants, we are all set and can confirm. Private initiatives towards schedule tour dates are more than welcome, just send us a quick email and we will schedule a new tour onto our Regular Group Tour agenda with your group as the first registrants. In case of not meeting the minimum group size, we can always study alternative independent plans or a ‘Courtesy Economy Tour’ alternative option for registered participants to book instead.

WHAT IS THE MOST COST EFFECTIVE CHOICE OFFER?

Again this depends on ona number of factors. Mainly the final group size accessing any service will normally determine the overall cost of a series of shared elements provided towards a service performance. Also even towards services consumed per person such as meals or hotel rooms, we obtain group rates from a group size of 20 upwards, negotiable down to 15 hence our minimum Regular Group Tour offer minimum group size.  If you are less than 15 persons this will always be your best offer. However if this does not line up to your chosen dates, we offer a ‘Courtesy Economy’ tour option by which the cost of overal group services is optimized for a private familiar experience. However looking purely at pocket economy it is cheaper to take an independent approach, only including hotels and optional extra services. From here you may also join our Guided City Tours and Activities, but they are not included into your bookings from start, only our best hotels & extra booking vouchers instructions! Anything else to consider? Breakfast! We usually include it in all options as extra value, since we know it is easy to simply  book hotels elsewhere online.

WHAT ELSE IS INCLUDED?

Our ‘Price Includes’ work on a per section basis, meaning by section our main catalogue sections, we call our “Travel Plan Offer Choices”, these being:

a) Join a Regular Group Tour where we can say that everything that is listed is included, so to sum up we include: our own specialist tour  travel guides from arrival to departure, assisting all the way;  hotels with breakfast provided, group meal options also provided, UNESCO Heritage Guided Tours & Tickets provided where mentioned in each of our Travel Plans,  transportation by private bus with dedicated driver 12/24 h a day, from arrival to departure, mainly destined to the intercity itineraries on our routes. Smiles all along and under any weather.

b)Private Tours will be given the same standards as above, and a choice of the services to be included, we are flexible about where you book your hotels since our speciality is dealing with ground services.

c) Independent Tour Package: Here we are talking about a basic Travel Plan with the main bookings covered, we start our with a hotel only with breakfast included, and then provide options to build up the service through guides, transportation and meals options which are not included unless you choose so. 

d) City Guided Tours & Activities: Here we are talking about a specific tour within a location at a given time and date. You will receive a participant voucher after your booking is confirmed and this will cover you on a per-activity basis. Our tours and activities usually have a duration of 2-3 hours up to 4-5 h depending on each activity the duration is listed. 

Package Offers except for from our Regular Group Tour section, and especially towards independent Travel Plan offers, may sometimes include bookings from different sections and hereby include elements from the above sections sparingly on a per schedule and activity basis, meeting the itinerary described in any given package offer we issue.

 

 

WHERE DO WE MEET?

There is a meeting point or a symbolic starting place established and documented towards every one of our tours, service or events offer. Whether this be main arrival ports or city locations depend on the type of service, but don’t worry so far, we will make sure you know where to conveniently​ meet up to start our tour.

DO YOU MAKE HOTEL ONLY PACKAGES?

Indeed we do, these packages are highlighted through our City Escapes section and can be combined to plan your own independent multi-day, multi-city travel plan. Extra Optional Service Choices are given through our online booking process or you can also write to us to contact@alandalus-experience.com and we will add any items to your existing order taking it to any level

DO YOU HAVE A WEEKLY AGENDA IN EVERY CITY?

We have a specific agenda in our main cities. These are those listed in UNESCO heritage sites of our main ‘Regular Group Tour’ itinearies. Herefore our city agenda includes so far Toledo, Cordoba, Granada and Seville, as well as the offer included in our main arrival and departure cities: Malaga, Madrid, Barcelona and Lisbon, where we are still weak but growing.

IS THE TOUR SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN? ARE THERE DISCOUNTS?

Our tours are suitable for all ages, though considerable walking distances are a second nature to Spain and this is also seen in our cities. Suitable footwear, walking or adequate carry or moving gear will be sufficient for most. 

About discounts, there are discounts available up to age 12-14 in most monuments, hotels provide discount to a third bed in a double room shared by two adults and we ourselves do not speculate with our prices but try to integrate all participants in best manner so we have provided a 50%  discount to our part of the service for children aged 5-14  when booking along with two adults  fact, under this age we do our best to go by free. Listed children price details are available in all of our offers online or via our Custom Tour Service  form, if they are  not listed please enquire to admin@alandalus-experience.com
