No. For personal travel, it is the responsibility of all travelers to obtain all needed visas and information from their designated embassy. Customers can do this through the embassy and/or online. Please note that obtaining visas can take up to six weeks prior to your departure. It is strongly advised that you consult your local Consulate or Embassy of the country you are visiting well in advance to determine which visas they require and how to obtain them.

At the end of your trip, if you’re happy with the service you received, providing a tip for the leader is appropriate.
