Hey everyone. I'm doing the grand explore that leaves dec 21st to jan 6th 2011...I've read that some of the optional trips are closed Christmas day and maybe new years day. Is this true? and if so, which ones are close?<BR><BR>Is anyone else on this trip?

    Depends on the operator. You’ll get a rundown on what’s closed. There’ll be a mad dash to signup for any available spots for the operators that are running, otherwise it’ll be a quiet day at the hotel. You can always go for a nice hike in the hills. You can always tell your TM at the beginning of the tour that you want in on that optional (for xmas/new years) and pay to reserve your spot.
