We have extensive experience in operating travel in these regions of the world. We work with the best local partners available within the possibilities of these countries. Even so, it is important to keep in mind that the quality of local services and infrastructure (hotels, transport, food, etc) are not the same as in Brazil, Europe and North America. Most of the time they will surprise us very positively, for example, for their human qualities and, sometimes, even for the technical aspect of the service. But unforeseen and problems must happen. It is our job, responsibility and even pleasure, from Chörten and our partners, to anticipate them and, when necessary, take care of circumventing them in the best possible way. So that, in this way, travelers have the most important responsibility: to enjoy the trip in the most peaceful, pleasant and profitable way possible. As part of this responsibility, we understand that we are traveling in these incredible countries and cultures, very different from our own in many ways and that teach us so much.

For international airlines, it is the specific exchange rate for the purchase of international tickets, which usually has a value between the commercial dollar for sale and tourism, to be checked at the time of issuance.
The cancellation policies are effective from the moment of payment of the down payment, when we confirm the accommodation reservations, we issue air and train tickets according to the necessary advance of each trip. These vary from service provider to service provider we use on our trip (hotels, airlines, etc). Payments canceled up to 60 days before the start of the trip are generally refunded almost entirely, with small cancellation fees from local airlines, train tickets, hotels, local operators and banks. From 45 days before the start of the trip, cancellation fees increase gradually, varying from service provider to service provider. Still, we will definitely do our best and talk to each service provider to see what we can get out of refunds even after this date. With respect to airline tickets, each airline and fare has its own cancellation policy.
