Tour Policies


What you need to know before your trip

Validity of travel documents:

CHECK YOUR PASSPORT. As a general rule, passports should have at least six months of validity when traveling internationally. Most countries will not permit a traveler to enter their country if the passport is set to expire less than six months after the final day of travel.

Meeting information:

  • Your guides and drivers meet you with a Firebird Tours meeting sign that has your name on it.
  • Meeting points and meeting times with your guides and drivers are indicated in your day-by-day schedule.
  • Please do not leave the meeting points if you cannot see your guide or driver. If you have trouble locating your guide or driver please contact us on our emergency phone. In case of a flight delay, please contact us immediately to re-arrange your transfers. Please note, the maximum waiting time for a driver at the airport is 1 hour.

Adjustment of meeting times: During the peak Summer Season, from June to August, it is often not possible to make last-minute timing modifications, simply because the transfer supplier will not be able to fulfill it. They are all booked up weeks in advance.

Hotel information:

  • Hotel reservations are made under your last name.
  • Standard check-in time at the hotels is 3:00 p.m. Early check-in is not included unless indicated on the itinerary. In case you arrive earlier you may leave your luggage in the luggage room prior to check-in.
  • Standard check-out time at the hotels is 12:00 p.m. Late check-out is not included unless indicated on the itinerary. In case you depart later you may leave your luggage in the luggage room until departure.
  • Standard breakfast time at the hotels is after 7:00 a.m. If you leave the hotel earlier please pick up your breakfast box(es) at the hotel reception upon check-out.
  • City taxes are not included in the price. This is a small tax (1-5 EUR per person per night) collected by many European cities. You will need to pay it at the hotel at checkout.

Additional information:

  • Recommended arrival time at a train station is 30 minutes prior to departure.
  • Please print all travel documents before departure. You may find all the documents in the DOCUMENTS section of the final confirmation.
  • Any changes and add-ons required to be made on your itinerary after the final confirmation has been sent to you are subject to a $150 modification fee.
