Molly's review for another Dragoman tour
“Lou was a perfect introduction to my experience with Dragoman crew. She knew how to handle all the different passengers on Betsy, especially particularly difficult passengers that didnt make a tour leaders life very easy. Shed always maintain a professional manner. All the while, she was more of a friend than a tour leader, and seemed to have fun along with the passengers, which was preferred rather than a No, Im working attitude.”

Local Payment The local payment is a group fund, paid separately from the trip price on the first day of the tour. It covers everything that the group does together on the ground. This is primarily hotel accommodation and campsite fees, meals whilst camping (but not while eating in restaurants), and included activities and puts money directly back to the local community. The local payment, or kitty system, is unique to overlanding tours and provides maximum flexibility and best value on the road - you can see exactly what is being paid for, you get everything at cost price, it keeps costs competitive by leveraging group expenses and saves on administrative costs. The fund is run by the tour guide, and any excess left over at the end is returned equally to the group. Local prices are estimated in USD when we print the brochure then reviewed monthly as local costs and exchange rates vary throughout the year. It's therefore important once you book your trip to check the website regularly and just before departure for any changes to the amount.
