Your group demographics are based on the entire group to which a trip is offered. The demographics of your trip are dependent upon which group members ultimately book the trip.

We cannot guarantee travel conditions, including weather. We cannot guarantee availability of flights, excursions, lodging or any other elements of a proposed trip. Although most travel, including travel to international destinations, is completed without incident, travel to certain destinations may involve greater risk than others. TravelBlender urges each traveler to review travel prohibitions, warnings, announcements and advisories issued by the United States Government and/or the traveler's home country prior to booking travel to international destinations. For example, Information on conditions in various countries and the level of risk associated with travel to particular international destinations can be found at www.state.gov, www.tsa.gov, www.dot.gov, www.faa.gov, www.cdc.gov, www.treas.gov/ofac and www.customs.gov.
