Getting to the Tour

Transportation to the tour point of origin is not generally provided.  Carolina Tailwinds does not book airline flights. In certain instances, Carolina Tailwinds can provide a courtesy airport shuttle to the tour start.  That requires coordinated arrival and departure times to a limited airport list.  Call us for more details if you are interested.  Otherwise, we'll make sure you find your way to the tour start.  We can refer you to airport shuttle companies for each local airport.  Let us know if you would like to try to share shuttle transportation expenses with another guest and we'll try to arrange it. 

If you are driving to the point of origin, parking for your car will have been arranged for you there for the duration of the tour. We will return you to your car on the last day of the tour.
