Most often meals are offered buffet or family style and always have a wide variety of options, including a huge organic salad with all the fixings. In the past about 10% of our attendees have been gluten-free and have raved about the food. In situations where we cook the meals you will be sent a catering form so we are aware of your needs and will be happy to organize our menu planning accordingly.
We will endeavour to cater for any dietary requirements, including vegetarians, vegans and those with special dietary needs.
Good question! There are tours where we will be staying in a hotel and all of our meals will be a restaurants - most will be covered with your tour fees, however, we keep a few meals open so you can discover on your own or with someone from the group. Your tour director will have a list of restaurants that we think are best and that are recommended by the "in the know" locals. Sometimes we find the finest restaurant and book ahead for the group - but participants are free to go out on their own should they wish. We often take our dinners together although is not required.
We also seek out the coolest places to stay ~ mansions, tents, historic hotels, modern condos, masseria's, hip hotels, boutique hotels and ranches. Each location is different and depends on the Ace Camp. You'll find where you'll be staying in the specific Ace Camp description.
We strive to find the best places for participants to stay according to the tour and Ace Camp experience. .
Not in all circumstances but yes, mostly. Room allocation varies on the workshop so we suggest checking the specific workshop you're interested in and going from there. We have had to talk many people into sharing a room and all have been happy with the result. We encourage participants to share bedrooms as it helps create a supportive and community spirit among the group.
This is always a tough question for us as we understand in some cases participants are traveling to other cities and are including the Ace Camp as part of their vacation. It depends - if the accommodation is based on double occupancy or we are staying at a house where space is limited it would be best to contact us to discuss. Remember - this is your learning time and sometimes the workshop works best when you venture on your own. We actually don't encourage it - and hope you can meet up with your spouse or travel partner after the Ace Camp.
