TOUR GUIDE VS. TOUR LEADER



Tour Guide: 



Often locals with intimate knowledge of an area, its culture, and history. Their role entails providing commentary, routing the tour, and seeing that people have a good time. They are a licensed, qualified expert who supplies specific information on the history, art, architecture and culture of the city/village/attraction where they are guiding the tour. The guide meets the group at the required place and leaves it at the end of the tour; they do not travel with the group. 



 



Tour Leader: 



An experienced person tasked with ensuring the smooth operation of tours, as well as providing practical support to passengers throughout the whole trip. Their role primarily includes assisting with accommodation, transportation between locations, and communication with tour guides at each stop. A tour leader may provide general guidance around a city or village and offer information on the place visited on the bus. However, they are not required to have specific art, architecture, or historical knowledge. They are not allowed to provide a guided tour or commentary of a city/village/attraction once there and, if caught doing so, can be fined. 



 



Please note: Tour leaders/guides are not a standard inclusion in all travel offers. Tour leaders/guides will only be made available when required to enhance the experience of the destination featured. 



 



CLIMATE & AVERAGE TEMPERATURES



Czech Republic



November to March



The average temperature for these cities start at 5.5°C, and reach 10°C during the daytime and drops down at night. The first week of November is one of the best time to visit these destinations, before temperatures start to drop further.



 



May is known for mild temperatures that are ideal for sightseeing, with highs climbing to 21 degrees, however it is still a good idea to bring a lightweight rain coat. August is the middle of Summer, so expect hot and humid days with temperatures averaging 26 degrees. October in Eastern Europe brings an array of brilliant Autumn colours. Expect a few crisp mornings, and be prepared to dress in layers.



 



Slovenia / Italy



November to March



We recommend dressing in layers as there can be significant changes in temperature throughout the day. Wear good walking shoes, jeans or heavy cotton pants, a light cotton shirt plus a sweater/jacket and to fit in with the local Italians, a scarf. Expect temperatures ranging from highs of 16°C to lows of 7°C.



 



In July and August the average temperature is above 25°C. April to June and September to October are the best months to travel through those areas. You can expect temperatures of up to 26°C during the warmest part of the day.



 



In the northern areas in October the average daily temperature is 14.5°C but temperatures can still reach highs of 19°C which can feel quite pleasant. Temperatures are starting to drop low during this month though, especially at night. The average minimum temperature in October is 10°C.



 



The Mediterranean



The months of July and August get especially busy at popular tourist hot spots. If you want to avoid crowds as much as possible, opt for a cruise that departs in shoulder season – September through November. During this month in the Mediterranean, the average sea water temperature for the beaches is 20°C, which is just about warm enough to enjoy a dip.



 



FLIGHTS



Seat Selection & Frequent Flyer Points:



At TripADeal, we do not arrange seat selection. It is essential to highlight that some airlines do not allow pre-selected seats. We strongly suggest you contact the airline directly with seating allocation requirements and/or arrive at the airport earlier to arrange your seating. While we do not add frequent flyer member details to bookings, you can do this directly with the airline once you have your flight information.

Gratuities / Tipping:



Land

Please note: Tipping for services provided is always a matter of personal discretion; however, please be aware that many locals consider tipping part of their normal remuneration, and they may approach you for payment; there's no need to be intimidated by the request.



 



Cruise:



Gratuities (tips) are not included for the cruise staff's services throughout this tour's cruise component. MSC cruises is an internationally registered company & operates to US & European standards, both of which have an economy driven by a tipping culture. Gratuities are expected on your cruise and will be charged to your onboard account at 10 euro per person, per day. If you have any questions regarding the gratuities on your cruise, please speak to the guest services staff onboard the ship.



 



Sightseeing:



Please note: If entrance to a site is affected by changes in operating hours or public holiday closures, your itinerary, where possible, may be adjusted, or a similar activity will be offered in its place (subject to availability).



 



Shopping: 



Shopping overseas can be a daunting and confusing experience, especially when there is a language barrier. Please be very cautious when foreign currencies and prices are involved. If paying by credit card, please pay close attention to the amount you are being charged and keep all your receipts. 



Do not make any purchases you are not comfortable with or feel pressured into. If you are uncertain or need assistance with the language barrier, please seek assistance from your Tour Guide/Leader.



Please refer to our Terms and Conditions regarding shopping for further information.



Visas


A tourist visa is not required for Europe for stays up to 90 days if travelling on an Australian passport.



Important: 



• Please start arranging your visa three weeks before departure to account for any delays due to consulate operating hours.

Please note: 



• Passengers who are not Australian citizens must also check with the respective consulate or visa agency to determine what their visa requirements are and what personal identification is required.



• It is also important to note that some areas of employment, such as journalism, government authorities and charity organisations, may have additional restrictions in applying for visas. This may, in turn, affect the type of application required.
