BAGGAGE: The less you bring with you, the better; we recommend that you take along one suitcase per person, plus a small overnight bag. On land, due to limited motor coach capacity, we request that only one bag per person be carried on motor coaches. If additional baggage is carried (other than overnight bag) a supplementary charge of $2.00 per additional suitcase per “lift” will be levied according to the number of lifts. For those tours that include a domestic flight(s) only one suitcase per person will be allowed. Additional baggage charges according to airline tariff. Baggage is carried at owner’s risk and baggage insurance is strongly recommended. PORTERAGE: Porterage of one suitcase per person is provided in our tours. However you should know that strict security precautions in Greece, especially going through Customs inspections, on entry or exit points, demand

that you carry your personal piece of luggage for the Customs official. This procedure is seriously enforced in Greece and there are no exceptions to the rule. We ask that you bring with you only a small carry on piece and one suitcase. Both pieces you should be able to carry on your own, where necessary, when the law, for your own protection, demands it. This will be in Customs and security areas such at ports and airports. Our own people will be there beyond these areas to assist you. Also porterage is not always available on the islands and especially in Santorini PASSPORTS AND VISAS: United States citizens traveling to Greece require a valid passport only. It is required that the passport be valid at least (3) months beyond the conclusion of your trip. For other countries than Greece, see page 50. It is suggested that ALL participants check with the appropriate Consulates to determine if any visas are required. Those taking one of our Egypt and/or Turkey tours require a visa and should obtain one prior to departure.
