We have learned from experience that a proper preparation is a good base for a successful tour. Depending on the route, requirements and administrative demands we ask you to attend some of the pre-tour meetings.
Some short tours, like the Germany Tours will not have a pre-tour meeting. The regular short and standard tours will have a meeting scheduled between 6 and 9 weeks prior to tour start. For the long distance tour there are two meetings enabling us to speak about the administrative aspects first and then tackle the last questions approx 4 weeks prior to tour start.
Since 2020 we use various online services to enable the preparation from the distance.
The pre-tour meetings generally take place in Kastellaun at BurgStadt CampingPark. Mir Tours sponsors one nights camping fee for this. Quite a few participants arrive a day earlier so they can study the tour documentation at ease. This is also a good opportunity to meet the fellow travellers. Anyone coming without their camping vehicle can stay in a nearby bed and breakfast or small hotel.
During the meeting we will go through the tour documentation with you, offer additional information and hints and answer various questions, i.e. about tolls and travel budget, programmes, what to take along etc. Depending on the tour destination visa forms are finalized, tour documents scanned and processed. Apart from getting to know each other, a tour film and some technical training is generally offered.
Should you be interested in having a cb-radio counselling or fitting there is a company called CB Rider in attendance. A leaflet with their services and contact details is given to you upon booking.
We offer all clients to stay on for a briefing on GPS/Navigation Here we explain the various terms, explain what you get in regards to routes and waypoints and inform about additional free map material. If you wish we look at your system and tell you how it is most effectively used. If you have question about your unit or need technical support you must bring along your accessories and documentation.
Should you not attend the pre-tour meeting we will consult you about posting your tour documents.
With a new additional website, we are honoring the customers who decide to travel early or regularly. At www.mir-auch.de there are additional hints, tips and tasks to get you in the right mood for your trip. This page can only be visited via a log-in specially set up for you, which you will receive after completed booking.
Our informative meetings, pre-tour participants meetinga and reunions take place here.
The BurgStadt CampingPark is in Kastellaun next to the hotel with the same name.
The hotel/camping is next to a greek restaurant with a beer garden. The campsite is terraced and park-like. All pitches are hard-standing and have their individual socket. There are many opportunities to spend your leisure time with shops, cafes and restaurant and sights to see.
We suggest you use the A 61 motorway and exit at Pfalzfeld No. 43, even when travelling from the south.
