What is the name of the organization offering this groupon? Can you fly out of Charlotte, NC? Jack M.

Sandra M.  asked on  Jan 23, 2013

A:

We are Friendly Planet Travel, Inc. Flights from other departure cities are based on live airfare availability. Therefore we are not able to provide an accurate quote before you've made your reservation as pricing can change from one moment to the next. When you call to make your reservation, let us know that you'd like to fly from Charlotte and we'll check what's available and let you know. If you can find a more affordable flight to Miami on your own, we'll arrange the included flights from Miami for you.

Q:

What is the Single Supplement Fee: $399?

Leslie C.  asked on  Jan 23, 2013

A:

The Groupon prices are based on Double Occupancy rates. The Single Supplement of $399 is for passengers who are traveling without a roommate. However, we do have a very convenient roommate finder on our website. This will allow you to connect with other Friendly Planet travelers who may be interested in traveling with you. http://www.friendlyplanet.com/faqs/find-roommate.html

Q:

MY WIFE USES A CANE, DOES THIS TOUR REQUIRE MUST CLIMBING?

ROBERT D.  asked on  Jan 22, 2013

A:

This tour does not require any climbing or hiking. As this is an independent program, you have the ability to choose your own daily activities. There will be some walking required and maybe some steps, as most of the hotels are set up in such a way that you need to go outside to get to the dining area from your room.
