Viaventure FAM trips are designed to teach clients about the destinations they manage through enjoyable experiences that are both informative and inspiring. This trip in particular is designed to demonstrate their classic midrange offerings and will be accompanied by a administrative cost ($500 for GT & BZ or $350 for just GT or BZ**). Viaventure also emphasizes that this is a work trip and although, enjoyable it is not a holiday and this is reflected in the schedule. The trip cost may be subject to change. Clients will have to take care of their interntional flights but all internal flights are included in the cost of the FAM.
