SEVEN-NIGHT POST-RACE EXTENSION TO ANDASIBE AND MORONDAVA | June 10-17, 2018
Marathon Tours & Travel reserves the right to adjust the itinerary as necessary in order to adhere to flight schedules, which are subject to change at any time.  Due to the small number of rooms at each hotel, we will divide those on the post-race extension into two groups.  The two extensions follow the same itinerary (in opposite order).  We will honor requests to be in the same group as family and friends.
