    Thanks again Michael. Love these types of contests. (My famous face for LA was Jackson Galaxy of "My cat from hell")

    It is good, but I don't know if this is a great contest. All they are offering are accommodations (guesthouses, hotels, and trains), transportation, and guidance. Reading the rules, no airfare, meals, and they will also charge you a "trip kitty." The kitty a cash fund for the tour operator to use to get the group out of problems. On a few of the trips, the kitty can be quite high compared to the cost of the trip.

    For many of the tours, costs for the not included items will be as much or more than the trip itself is worth.

    That's how a lot of these tour operators work. I know G Adventures used to have a "local fee" which was like the trip kitty. You would pay a certain amount upon arrival for the trip which was used for various expenses. I believe that they took the fee away and incorporated it into the price of the trips.
    Winning the prize will still cost you quite a bit in terms of flights, trip kitty etc... The prizes (tours) being awarded are still worth a good amount!
