frequently asked questions
We have compiled a few of the questions that we are commonly asked and trust that the answers are
useful in helping you to understand the Aroma Tours experience and how best to arrange your time with us.
What is the average number of people on an Aroma Tour?
Most of our tours are limited to 16 people with the exception of our Provence
Aromatherapy Retreat and Turkish Aromatic
Odyssey which are a little larger with a maximum of about 20 people.
What sort of people will I find on an Aroma Tour?
Our guests are friendly, free-spirited people from all over the world and to date
we have shared our Aroma Tours adventures with guests from over 30 different countries.
The normal age range of our guests is from 40 to 70 with the ocassional
younger and older ( young at heart ) guests, traveling either individually,
as a couple, or as a small group of friends.
Please note: We are not able to accept children on tour.
Who will accompany us on tour?
All of our tours are personally escorted by either Robbi and/or Jim along
with local guides and special guests.
How will we be travelling about?
We mostly use an air-conditioned 26 seat luxury coach and arrange our itineraries to keep
travel to a minimum. Where appropriate we take internal flights to avoid long drives.
In Turkey where we are travelling by coach we ensure that each person has 2 seats
to themselves for comfort.
What type of accommodation will we be staying in?
You will stay in carefully selected specialty hotels, chateaux and resorts, chosen for their service, charm
and comfort. All rooms have private facilities and reflect the character of each destination.
The standard varies between tours from charming 3 star to luxurious
5 star with each room chosen to reflect our
desire to create an authentic, relaxing and enjoyable experience for you.
What will our meals be like?
Delicious food and wines are an integral part of each Aroma Tour. From finest gourmet cuisine to delicious
traditional fare, our meals are always colourful, authentic and flavoursome and are enjoyed in a leisurely fashion.
We are happy to cater for vegetarians and if you have specific dietary needs we will do our best to accommodate you.
