    How much is this trip? How much room is left? Thanks!!

    • Darlene

      The 11 days cost $3409 Canadian. Additionally, airfare from the company is $1660 Canadian. It's a Canadian Company out of Toronto. If you book now you can pay $300 deposit and make additional payments over the next 14 months. Final pmt is due May 2017. Several of us have booked the trip only and plan to use air miles. But, I was told I could add the flight to my booking anytime before the final due date in May. Should be lots of room. The tour bus accommodates 20. (So it may not be just our group.)
