Each tour is given a Culture Shock
Rating, designed to help you choose a trip that is suitable to your travel
tastes and preferences. The Culture Shock Rating lets you know how much
'difference' you can expect from the experience - whether there's any
familiar food available, if you'll need to adapt a little or a lot to
the surroundings and the kind of home comforts (if any) you can expect.
Culture Shock is rated according to the following scale:
Culture Shock of 1 – Little
or no adjustment at all is required. The comforts of home are here
for the most part.
Culture Shock of 2 – A generally
easy trip but there may be the occasional remote lodging, market meal
or language barrier.
Culture Shock of 3 – Expect
an occasional cold shower, camping and remote or even multishare accommodation…Remember
though, this is all part of your authentic Adventures travel experience!
Culture Shock of 4 – Expect
to rough it here and there. This may mean a public bus, very remote
and rustic accommodation, and no access to western-style food.
Culture Shock of 5 – You are
totally off the beaten path with none of the comforts of home, and
are exposed to a totally foreign culture to what you are accustomed
... Sounds fantastic doesn’t it!
