The Tour Operator incurs costs with the Suppliers of your tour well in advance of your tour date. All Suppliers have their own cancellation policies, which apply to your booking. Upon receipt of your cancellation request, we will contact the Suppliers for any applicable refunds subject to the Supplier’s terms and conditions. If you are entitled to a refund, please note that the Supplier is responsible for this refund, not the Tour Operator. Suppliers may choose to provide a travel voucher or credit in lieu of a refund. We are not responsible for a Supplier’s failure to pay a refund or for the Supplier's bankruptcy or insolvency. In addition to the terms and conditions of the Supplier, the following applies to all cancellations. If the Traveler cancels the reservation more than 91 days prior to the start of the tour, the Traveler shall not be eligible for a deposit refund. Tour cancellation requests received within 91 days of the initial tour date are subject to the following charges:

During the tour, no refund shall be made for transfers, sightseeing tours, additional trips, additional nights, room upgrades, unused site entries, or any other services, including but not limited to meals, accommodation, or transportation, voluntarily not taken. If the Traveler decides to leave the tour in progress voluntarily, the Traveler shall not receive any type of refund.
Cancellation by the Tour Operator: The Tour Operator reserves the right to cancel any tour before departure, in which case the Tour Operator will provide the Traveler with a full refund of all net payments paid to the Tour Operator unless the cancellation is due to a force majeure or an extraordinary event that makes it infeasible to operate the Tour as normal.
Force Majeure: The Tour Operator assumes no liability for any loss, damage, delay, or cancellation resulting in whole or in part from an Act of God or any other force majeure condition, including, without limitation: fire, volcanic eruption, hurricane, environmental pollution or contamination, inclement weather, earthquake, low or high water levels, flood, water or power shortages or failures, tropical storms or hurricanes, riots or civil commissions or disturbances, and any other acts of a similar nature, sabotage, arrests, strikes or labor disruptions, restraint of rulers or peoples, expropriations, acts of terrorism, war, insurrection, quarantine restrictions, government health advisories, governmental and administrative actions (including the closure of borders, tourist attractions, and travel warnings and restrictions), epidemics, pandemics, or warnings or alerts of any kind of nature, government seizures, refusal or cancellation or suspension or delay of any government authority or any license, permit or authorization, damages to its facilities or the travel Supplier and its facilities, or any other unforeseen circumstances or any other factors unforeseen by The Tour Operator that impacts negatively on, or hampers, its ability to fulfill any of its contractual conditions. In the circumstances amounting to force majeure, the Tour Operator shall provide the Traveler with a possibility of rescheduling the tour or with a credit toward a future tour. The credit shall be equivalent to the amount paid by the Traveler to the Tour Operator less any sums the Tour Operator is not able to recover from Suppliers. The rescheduling of the tour or credit equivalent toward a future tour or both is at the Tour Operator's discretion. The Tour Operator is not responsible for services purchased by the Traveler which are not part of the tour package (e.g., advance airline tickets, transaction fees, or travel insurance). Payments made toward the tour shall not be applied to another tour unless a separate agreement made between the Tour Operator and the Traveler provides otherwise. In the event of an agreement made between the Tour Operator and the Traveler, which shall result in applying the Traveler’s funds to another date in full or partially, the transferred funds shall become non-refundable in any case. The transferred funds may be applied to another tour again only if the Tour Operator cancels the tour for which the Traveler is registered at that time without the possibility of a refund. Any complaints or refund inquiries must be made by the Traveler via e-mail to email@example.com within 30 days after the end of the tour or cancellation of the tour. Complaints and refund inquiries sent later than 30 days after the end of the tour, or cancellation of the tour, will not be considered by the Tour Operator. Complaints and refunds inquiries shall be considered by the Tour Operator within 30 days from the date of the inquiry and if there is a need for our Suppliers or Partners to send us any supplementary documents, this period may be extended by an additional 30 days.

The Tour Operator reserves the right to verify possible flight connections concerning the Traveler’s tour.
In case of rescheduling the tour due to any of the reasons described in the Worry-Free Policy all funds paid by the Traveler shall be transferred to a newly selected tour and kept as a deposit, which – in case of tour cancelation made by the Traveler – shall remain entirely non-refundable. In the event of the tour cancellation made by the Tour Operator, already transferred funds may be transferred again to another tour date selected by the Traveler without the possibility of a refund.

None of these modifications or changes listed in the „Itineraries” section shall affect the tour price or entitle the Traveler to any credit or refund.
Travel Concierge: Tours are attended by a Travel Concierge during the main tour Itinerary.

Pre- or post-tour add-ons are organized on a locally hosted basis and are attended by English-speaking experts.

Air Transportation: International airfare (to the tour starting point and from the ending point) is not included in tour pricing. The Tour Operator can offer quotations from any gateway. By standard, all payments made by the Tour Operator for the Traveler’s international airfare are non-refundable and we are not responsible for any air carrier’s decision regarding refund unless separate agreements between the Traveler and the Tour Operator provide otherwise.
Behavior/Indemnification: The Tour Operator will not tolerate abusive or aggressive behavior from the Traveler. The Tour Operator will refuse to deal with and may terminate the tour of a traveler who assaults staff, Suppliers, or fellow travelers or who is abusive or aggressive to them and is generally affecting the enjoyment of others with their behavior. The Tour Operator reserves the right at any time and our discretion to terminate the travel arrangements with the Traveler and/or cease to deal with any party member(s) whose behavior, in the reasonable opinion of the Tour Operator or our Suppliers, may cause danger, upset, disruption or distress to anyone else or damage to property.

Traveler agrees to and shall indemnify and hold harmless the Tour Operator, and each of our officers, directors, employees, and agents (collectively “Tour Operator”), from any expenses, losses, liabilities, damages, judgments, settlements, and costs (collectively, “damages”) involved with or incurred by the Tour Operator (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and the advancement of same) with respect to any claims, lawsuits, arbitrations, or other causes of action, which result, directly or indirectly, from: (i) the Traveler’s breach or violation, or threatened breach or violation, of this Agreement and (ii) any damage caused by the Traveler while participating on the tour. While the Tour Operator values opinions and points of view of each Traveler and appreciates every bit of feedback shared with the Tour Operator, or on the Tour Operator’s website, or other platforms, the Traveler shall ensure that that their review of the tour or any other service provided by the Tour Operator is consistent with facts and real events that have taken place during the tour and concerns only those components of the tour in which the Traveler personally participated or used. The Traveler's review should relate to the entire tour and include all its aspects in an honest and complete manner. The Traveler agrees to avoid any form of blackmailing, bad publicity, or actions that aim to damage the Tour Operator’s image. The Traveler accepts that failure to respect the above-mentioned provisions enables the Tour Operator to take legal actions against the Traveler and recover any costs, including attorney’s fees, as well as seek compensation from the Traveler for any potential damages related to the Tour Operator’s image and financial losses.
Roommates: Single Travelers may choose to share a room with another tour participant during the tour. In such a case, the Tour Operator will try to find a roommate for the single Traveler. If the Tour Operator is unable to find a roommate for the single Traveler, the single Traveler will not need to pay for the single supplement as the Tour Operator will cover the cost of the single supplement for the single Traveler. This policy applies only to reservations made 91 days and more prior to the tour and concerns only the main portion of the Traveler’s tour. This policy does not apply to additional nights before and after the tour, tailor-made tours and pre- and post-tour add-ons, for which the single Traveler shall purchase the single supplement unless the Tour Operator is able to pair the single Traveler with another tour participant. The single Traveler who registers 90 days or less prior to the tour shall require the single supplement and will have to purchase it, providing that the Tour Operator is unable to find a roommate for the single Traveler. If the Traveler has already been assigned to a shared room with another participant before, during, or after a standard tour and then decides to purchase the single supplement for himself/herself, the Traveler shall also purchase the single supplement for the participant he/she was paired with to share the room initially. The cost of the single supplement shall be in accordance with the terms and conditions applying at the time of the requested change.
Additional Nights: The Traveler may purchase additional hotel nights through the Tour Operator. The additional hotel night includes meals (as stated in the individual offer sent to the Traveler via email before the tour), Travel Insurance, the assistance of the Tour Operator’s representative, and airport transfer(s) on a non-standard arrival/departure day. If the Traveler purchases additional hotel night(s) on their own, the Tour Operator shall not provide the Traveler with airport transfers to/from the hotel on non-standard arrival and departure days, meals, Travel Insurance, and assistance of the Tour Operator’ representative during the additional day(s) and the Traveler’s extended stay at the hotel will be at their sole expense. If the Traveler participates in an add-on that ends a day before the standard arrival day of the main tour or in an add-on that starts a day after the standard departure day of the main tour, the Traveler shall purchase an additional hotel night(s).
Hotel Check-in: Check-ins at the hotels usually take place during the midafternoon. If the Traveler wishes to have a guaranteed room ready for their immediate check-in upon arrival, it requires an additional room night to be confirmed. Early check-in depends on hotel availability and, therefore, cannot be guaranteed.
Tailor-Made Tours: The Traveler may book a Tailor-Made Tour customized to their own specific needs. In such a case, the Tour Operator shall prepare an individual tour offer for the Traveler. The price per person included on the Registration Form for such Tailor-Made Tour is based specifically on the number of travelers booking the Tailor-Made Tour. In the event that the number of travelers decreases, the Tour Operator reserves the right to increase the price per person included previously on the Registration Form. The Tour Operator shall notify the Traveler about the increase of the price per person. The Traveler shall agree to pay the increased price for their Tailor-Made Tour prior to the tour.
General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Clause: The Tour Operator takes the privacy of the Traveler seriously and will only use their personal information (entered on the Registration Form and in email messages by the Traveler, or passed to the Tour Operator during telephone conversations with the Tour Operator’s consultants) to administer the Traveler’s tour and to provide the tour services the Traveler has requested from the Tour Operator.
