Please note:


Stadium visit fees and football match tickets are not included in the tour price and must be paid in cash. A ticket usually costs EUR 30-50 per person, a stadium visit about EUR 15-30 per person. Due to unpredictable circumstances (force majeure), there is also a very low risk that the game will be canceled or postponed by the AFC, as in football matches in other countries. We ask for your understanding that the tour price in such a case can not be fully or partially refunded.
