These experiences do not form part of the official Congress programme, and as such participants:

  • will need to book/organise directly with the tour operators,
  • may need to organise their own travel and accommodation if those things are not covered by the tour, - we recommend confirming the details of the tour with the tour operator,
  • are free to book tours and with tour operators that are not featured on this website,
  • need to be aware of the local weather and climate, particularly for certain tours. See the BOM website.
