Will you need anything formal? This will depend on not only your personal preference, but the destinations you are visiting and the time of year you will be travelling. It is advisable to bring at least one ‘smart’ outfit for special evenings or highlight dinners, but this doesn’t mean a tuxedo or even a tie. If your itinerary visits places of worship, you may be required to wear items that cover your shoulders and in some cases, knees. When travelling, we recommend bringing items that are casual and lightweight, and require little or no ironing. The Hotels that we partner with have a strict dress code and we ask that you dress smart/casual for dinner (no joggers/thongs etc)
The only chance you will have to do laundry is if you stay two or more nights in one place and get it done through the hotel service if there is not a coin operated guest laundry. If you don’t wish to use hotel laundry services, then you can always wash items in the bath in your hotel room ensuring there is time for items to dry!

We have ample of stops along the way and we ask that you respect your fellow non-smoking passengers and light up in an area away from the group. Please also note that smoking is not permitted in restaurants and other public places.
