Sam: Hi, is this where I can get information on tours?
Nan: Yes, I can help you with that. What type of tour are you thinking about? There are some great city tours that are half-day or full-day.
Sam: You know, we've explored the city a lot since we've been here. I was actually thinking of a side trip .
Nan: Oh, sure. We have excursions to nearby attractions . There are one-day trips or two-day overnight trips, depending on which one you pick.
Sam: I think I'm interested in a hiking trip to the mountains. I'm big on nature. Are the overnight trips expensive?
Nan: Not at all. They are very moderately priced, starting at $120 and up. Here's a brochure on the three hiking tours that are available. All three are guided tours, and meals and transportation are included.
Sam: Do I need to book ahead?
Nan: Yes, this company requires that you make a reservation 24 hours ahead.
Sam: Great. I'll take a look at the brochure. Can I book that here at the hotel tour desk, or do I call the company directly?
Nan: I can book that for you. Just stop by when you've made a decision and I'll take care of it for you.
Sam: That's great. Thanks a lot for your help.
Nan: It's my pleasure. Let me know if you have any questions.
Sam: I will. Thanks.
