Three new booking options for Fall Festival 2013
Three new options are now available online! You can now pre-book lunches, a tour of the new Temple in Portugal and recordings of the teachings. More information on these new options is available below and on the Festival website. To add these options to your Festival booking, click the ‘Book now’ links below and select ‘Add an option’ in your booking cart.
Tours of the new Portugal Temple will be organized during the International Fall Festival.
Tours will be available in the afternoons of the Festival, departing and returning from and to the Festival site. The Temple is located in Sintra, a 30-minute bus ride from the Festival site in Cascais.
The Temple tour costs €15.00 per person and includes the bus trip, a guided tour, and a packed lunch (sandwich, fruit and a bottle of water). At the Temple site there will also be drinks and snacks available for sale. The cost for children is: 0-3 years FREE (provided they do not require a separate seat on the bus, no lunch is provided), 4-11 years €7.50, 12 years + charged as an adult.
Make sure to select the day and time you wish when the tour will be offered in the language of your choice. You will be back at the Festival site approximately 2 1/2 hours from your departure time. There are a limited number of spaces available each day, according to time and language option.
Each day during the Festival, teams of Festival volunteers and outside caterers will provide a selection of healthy, affordable vegetarian lunches including vegan and gluten-free options. These will be served at the Festival site in a food court style dining area.
As there will be a limited number of meals available each day, you will need to pre-book through the Festival booking system if you wish to benefit from this new option.
Pre-booking meals saves you the trouble of having to go offsite for your lunch and guarantees you a healthy, affordable vegetarian meal each day.
The booking system allows you to select which days you would like meals as well as choose which meal you’d like on each day. All meals are €6.00 each and come with a bottle of water. You will receive your pre-booked meal tickets when you register on arrival.
Please remember that lunch is included with the Temple Tour so you won’t need to book lunch on the day you visit the Temple site.
