Waitlisted Tours:
Our tours tend to sell out quickly so you will see on the list of trips above that a lot are sold out and have a waiting list.  Please do not be discouraged by the trip being sold out but do contact us to put your name on the waiting list.  Putting your name on a wait list often works out very well.  Many times we receive a cancellation after filling a trip, whether due to a calendar conflict, illness or another one of life's emergencies.  Wait lists help those that would like to go and those that have to cancel, even if it is after the cancellation deadline.
