EXPLANATION OF THE BUS PRICES
Bus prices are based on the actual number of passengers carried (but not below the minimum price), excluding the driver and one tour guide. However, the cashier may check the vehicle to verify this information. If the specified number of persons is incorrect, then instead of the group rate, the adult rate will be charged for the actual number of seats stated in the vehicle’s registration certificate.
For group trips of schoolchildren or adolescents up to the age of 18, the child rate will be charged. One accompanying adult is free per 10 children.
More information you can read in the brochure.
