Frequently Asked Questions
Can we book an Escape without the activities?
Escapes can be booked without a schedule activities if there is availability – it becomes a houseboat holiday with driver included. We are happy to discuss this with you.
Can we make changes to the itinerary?
We are happy to discuss whether alterations to the itinerary can be made, however, please know that sometimes due to logistics and remote location, not all requests can be fulfilled.
