Hello. I am seriously planning on signing up for a My Way Alpine Tour in September 7 to September 18, 2015. This will be my first RS tour, and would appreciate getting as much information as I can as I make my plans. I have these questions for starters:
You say that as part of the tour package we will receive some brochures and maps, and a book? I am hoping that we can get those as soon as we pay our deposit?
I would like to know if enough people have signed up for the Sept 7 - Sept 18 tour. I am asking because I need to feel safe about making my plans, like flight reservations, and added itinerary before and after the tour; I would like to know whether this particular tour will likely happen (and not be cancelled for lack of people).
Are there any interesting events happening during this time in September? Like good Mozart concerts, or Vienna Boys' Choir in Austria, or interesting folk events in the Gimmelwald area, and other places in our itinerary?
Should I wear hiking boots in the Gimmelwald area? Would ordinary walking New Balance shoes not be good enough because of the wet weather?
