Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to many of the questions that come to mind when considering joining a trip with Worker Bee tours. Browse the categories. If you don’t see what you need, please contact us. We are happy to answer any questions you may have.

Is it safe to travel in the Balkans?

Generally speaking, it is safer to travel around the Balkans than it is to travel around Western Europe or the United States. In addition, we take precautions to make sure that our teams are secure while they are in our care.

Do I need a passport to participate in a Worker Bee Tours project?

Documentation requirements depend on country of origin, destination country, and age. If the project is in your home country, your national ID Card is sufficient. If you are traveling to another country, we recommend you acquire a passport and carry it with you, regardless of whether you need it for border passage.

Do I need a visa to travel to the project location?

Visa requirements depend on international agreements between your home country and your destination country. Many countries have visa free travel regimes for short term stays. Please check the details of your specific situation or contact us for more information.

How do I pay the fee for my trip?

You can pay for your trip online via the Worker Bee Tours payment portal. For other arrangements, contact us.

When will I receive detailed instructions about my project?

We will send an orientation packet to you about 60 days before the start of your event. It includes all the information you need to successfully prepare for your trip, including packing suggestions, travel and safety tips, emergency contact information, arrival instructions and luggage tags to identify your bags as belonging to our group. Many of these materials are also available online from the resource section of our website.

How do I get to my project location?

You will be met by your project leader at the designated arrival location and taken to an assembly point where your team will gather for transport together to the project location.

Transportation from your arrival point to the project location is included in the project fee, so you will not have to pay anything for the transfer.

Where will I stay during the project?

We have established relationships with lodging providers in every project location, and book all of our participants into the same place. Depending on the location, that may be a hotel, a hostel, or a camp.

Room assignments are typically 2 to 4 persons per room, and you may request specific roommates if you are applying as a group. Single rooms, if available, carry a supplemental fee.

The project description will describe the specific lodging arrangements for your project, the type of room assignments available, and any supplemental fees for single rooms. For special needs, please inquire directly by email.

What will the meals be like?

Your project includes three meals per day, except for arrival and departure days, which include only the meals indicated in your itinerary. Meals may be served by individual plate, family style, or buffet, depending on the location, lodging establishment , and work schedule for your project. 

Our project planners try hard to give you a good introduction to local culture and cuisine, while taking into account the needs and desires of the participants. Please be sure to notify us in advance for any special dietary needs, including any health restrictions, allergies, or convictions that may apply.

Although meals are included, participants are always free to skip a meal if they choose or to purchase snacks on their own if they so desire.
