The flexibility you want
with the structure you need.

Our Hopper Tours are different. Rather than driving yourself (self-drive) or following a strict schedule on a crowded bus (fully-escorted), you’ll be provided with transportation between towns, accommodations, a flexible itinerary and optional day tours & attractions – the perfect way to combine the structure you need, with the flexibility you want. Plus, you’ll meet some fantastic like-minded travelers!

When will I get my travel documents?

Your travel documents will be issued via EMAIL 7-10 days prior to departure. Documents will include your assigned hotel accommodations, transfer details and times, vendor contact information, emergency numbers and more. All you need to do is print out all of these documents and take them with you. You may forward them to friends & family to share your trip details and contact information.

When should I arrive at the airport?

Play it safe and plan to arrive 2.5 to 3 hours prior to your scheduled departure time to allow for any unexpected delays in traffic, check-in, security, or long lines at the newsstand!

Will I have free time or will I have to stay with the group the entire time?

The foundation of our tours is the flexibility that is built into them. Other than transfers from town to town & scheduled tours or attractions, your vacation to spend as you please. A Hopper Tour is designed to provide you flexibility and independence in which your itinerary, accommodations, transfers and some tours/attractions are all pre-arranged to provide you with the structure you need while traveling. The rest of the trip is up to you to do as you please.

Do we need to tip our drivers on a Hopper tour?

Yes! For each door-to-door transfer with a driver or day tour with a tour guide (such as on our optional tours) it is customary to tip between 2 to 5 Euros or Pounds per person, per transfer based on the service and information provided by your driver and/or guide. No tipping is required for drivers of scheduled/public transfers.

What are the hotel bedding options?

It is important to note that European hotel rooms generally tend to be smaller than North American hotel rooms.

For your hotel room you can choose to have:

Double– One bed for two people (usually Double/Full or Queen size, depending on hotel star level. King only by request for certain hotels and not always guaranteed).

Twin– Two separate beds (can be two Single beds, two Double/Full, one Single & one Double/Full, etc…)

Triple– Two beds to sleep three people.  Rarely will there be three separate beds.  (Normally you will find a Double/Full bed and one twin bed for a total of 2 beds.  Sometimes you may find two Double/Full or three Single beds, but it is rare.) Please note there is no reduction in cost for a third person sharing a room with two others. For comfort, we suggest that three adults take two separate rooms.

Twin and Triple Room configurations will be assigned based on hotel availability at the time of check-in.

Note: No more than three adults can share a hotel room.
