CHANGES OR CANCELLATIONS
It goes without saying that we’ll do our best to make sure your excursion goes according to plan. But when
circumstances are beyond our control we sometimes have to amend or cancel excursions without warning. These
include but are not limited to…
Insufficient demand. Most of our excursions need a minimum number of participants to go ahead. So, if we don’t
get enough bookings we may have to amend or cancel your excursion.
Local or national holidays.
During public holidays, access to certain facilities – such as museums, archaeological and religious sites – may
Unexpected queues or traffic delays – Whilst this will be out of our control we’ll do our best, where possible,
to minimize any inconvenience caused.
Popular sights – these can sometimes get a bit overcrowded. When that happens, we’ll do our best where possible
to run the excursion in a different order to minimize inconvenience and enhance your experience.
We operate our excursions come rain or shine, however at times we will be forced to amend or cancel a particular
excursion due to weather-related safety considerations.
If your tour is cancelled by us, we will give you a full refund.
Payment will be made at our office or in your hotel when we deliver the tickets or on board, only by cash. Extras will be paid on spot.

On your excursion it is necessary that you follow all reasonable instructions of the leader. If you commit any
illegal act when on an excursion or in the reasonable opinion of the leader your behavior is disruptive,
threatening or abusive, causes or likely to cause danger, and/or detrimental to or incompatible with the
interests, comfort, well-being or harmony of the group and/or others we will require you to withdraw from the

material damages of third parties for each accident or series of accident that have the same cause,
each group accident, whoever the beneficiaries are.
The insurance also covers any personal harm to third parties or customers due to food poisoning from the
consumption of food or beverages during the trip, provided that it occurs in at least three (3) people from
the same cause and with the same symptoms.

our company in case of an accident as long as all health protocols are observed.
