                        Part of our protocols involve procedures such as:

                        -Hydroalcoholic gel in all the vehicles

                        -Individual headphones for groups to keep the necessary distance.

                        We do not include travel or health insurance and we strongly recommend a comprehensive travel insurance for any unexpected circumstances. This is not obligatory, however. An full travel insurance policy that covers cancellations and delays as well as medical insurance.

                        We suggest that you speak with your doctor to ensure that you are up-to-date with the recommended vaccinations when traveling to the destination. In any case, a negative Coronavirus Molecular Test (PCR) is needed to enter the country.

                        We suggest that you speak with your doctor to ensure what medications you will need to bring to the destination. Pharmacies and drugstores are common in all cities, however, it is not certain that you will be able to find a specific drug that you can find in your country of origin.

                        As in any city in the world, there can be pickpockets in crowded places. We suggest being vigilant at all times, but if you are in a group you will always be safer.

                        We do not include the cost of any domestic or international flight in any of our programs. These services must be booked independently by each guest.

                        Yes, hotels will charge the cost of a double room as standard, so a single supplement will be charged if you are traveling alone.

                        VA Expeditions is supported by Valencia Travel, a company with more than 12 years of foundation with a solid financial position. We have insurance from the insurance company La Positiva, that supports us and protects our guests from any eventuality at the destination, covering our guests for more than 5 million US dollars.

                        Each trip is customizable, but there may be additional restrictions and expenses in each case. We suggest contacting your sales representative for more information.

                        Yes, in addition to multi-day programs, we offer half-day experiences and excursions without overnight, which you can purchase as additional services.

                        Yes, you can travel with children and we have many activities to do as a family, however, depending on your itinerary, some experiences can be a bit demanding for young children. As a recommendation, we suggest that you ask your sales consultant if the tour you wish to book is suitable for children.

                        We work with a maximum group size of 12 passengers for sustainability reasons and a more personaized experience.

                        We suggest making your reservations at least one month before your trip in order to reserve the best hotels, transportation and services for your travel dates, however, in last minute cases, we can reserve up to 15 days in advance.

                        We suggest consulting with your embassy to review any documents, tests or special visa you need for your trip.

                        The official currency in Brasil is the Brazilean Real (BRL). In large cities there is a good chance that you will find ATMs or ATMs, however, we suggest that you do not rely entirely on this solution, as it may not be enabled to work with your bank.

                        Yes, we cater for all special dietary requirements. Please let us know at the time of booking if you have any allergies or special dietary needs.

                        As a sustainable travel company, we are in constant search of how we can improve the sustainability of our operations, intensifying our support for social projects, reinforcing our commitment to the development of our country, and adding community-based responsible experiences as we are also committed to support their recovery. In partnership with local NGOs, we launched our Sustainability and Reforestation seal, where for each apartment booked with us in the Amazon, a tree seedling will be planted in the forest. Our idea is to develop an increasingly conscientious tourism and help preserve this spectacular biome.

                        Tips are not included in the cost of the tour. You should plan to tip 10% in restaurants and for your guided services, however, tipping is never required.

                        Cultural norms vary within each Latin American country, even within each city within the country, however, we recommend the following measures to have a pleasant visit in each destination: Latin American culture in general tends to be closer and more informal than in others cultures, so there is usually always a friendly approach in all conversations, and going directly to the point could be considered offensive to some people. Personal space can be much shorter as well, but without being interpreted as sexual in nature. 

                        The schedules are also usually more relaxed and informal, however, this is not the case of VA EXPEDITIONS, since we will always respect the hours indicated in your itinerary. This may be different for other appointments that you can book on your own at other locations.

                        This depends on each itinerary, and will be indicated in the detail of the day. However, our itineraries always usually include free times to offer more flexibility to our guests. 

                        For any emergency, we appreciate contacting the following number:  + 55 21 99735-7446

                        It is through travel that we want to give each individual the opportunity to reconnect and positively transform themselves, positively develop traditional Brazilian communities and promote Brazil as a responsible tourism destination.

                        This depends on each itinerary, but generally is a ratio of one guide for every nine guests.

                        This depends on the type of the type of Travel insurance that the passenger has. We recommend that you have a comprehensive travel insurance policy for better care and hospital facilities.

                        The tours are carried out by an expert team that has determined the optimal times of visits to make the most of our guests' time, without rushing.

                        It depends on each itinerary. We suggest contacting your account representative to give you specific information regarding your  program.
