My Typical Tour

My Typical Tour

(I reduced the Regular Tour from 3 days to 2 days in 2016 to reduce cost and because there are now so many trusted Expats in each of the areas that you will meet who will freely share their experiences)

Sunday, Day 1

Tours start off from the Adventure Inn at 6:45AM. Eric and his staff are excellent hosts. They offer free airport pickup and delivery as well as free breakfast and discounts to my guests for cash US$.
