**PLEASE NOTE: As our invitations to travel with Ryan and Malaka on their escorted departures are limited and in high demand, we kindly request that only serious inquiries are made. Due to the fact that our departures are announced well over a year in advance in order to assist with our guest’s extended travel plans, they tend to sell out very quickly. We recognize plans can change and are always hopeful to be able to re-sell your space if we are in a sold out scenario, however, in the event we are unable to re-sell your space, we will charge a cancel fee equal to 10% of the cost of the trip.
