Welcome Aboard!

Thank you for signing up for a trip! We will get back to you as soon as we can; but keep in mind that if you are signing up on the weekend or a holiday, we may not get back to you until the next business day. Rest assured, your sign up has been received! ^_^

If you don’t hear back from us within two days, please e-mail us directly at info [at] pacsettours.com or call 310-218-3816 between 9am-6pm Pacific, Monday-Friday.

What Next?

If your trip is more than a year away/you’re using SPOTHOLDER: You will be e-mailed when the final trip price is announced. At that time, you will be asked if you want to stick with the trip, switch, or get a refund. Please do not e-mail to ask us for a more detailed price estimate; we really don’t have one!

If it’s still a few months until the trip deadline, Things will be a bit quiet on our end since it is still quite some time until the trip. If it isn’t, you’ll be hearing from us a lot more! As always, if you have any questions, you can always e-mail info[at]pacsettours.com.

Stuff you should do NOW

  • • If you have a Microsoft e-mail (hotmail, msn, live.com, etc.), we strongly suggest that you include “pacsettours.com” in your trusted sender list, but even then, their servers have lost our e-mails regularly. If you have an alternative e-mail, send it on to us!
  • • Don’t forget to save for meals, personal expenses, and an optional tour guide gratuity. We recommend budgeting ~$40/day for meals, and 4%-9% of the tour cost for gratuity.
  • • If you don’t have a passport yet, apply for one! We strongly suggest applying at least three months in advance or expediting it if you apply later.
  • • Come say hi! We’re on Twitter, FaceBook, Instagram, and Tumblr.
  • • Feel free to also read through our FAQ on the website to help prepare you for the tour. Do read our Policy page if you haven’t already! https://pacsettours.com/policy/
  • Once we get closer to the tour dates, we will be sending you pre-departure information.

    Should I buy my flight yet?

    Not yet! We will send out an e-mail when the tour is “confirmed” – which means it’s safe to buy flights. If a tour already has a “confirmed” mark next to the tour price, go for it.
