The deposit to be paid when you book your tour will be 30% of the tour price per person.  The final balance must be paid at least 8 weeks before departure.  Where a tour is booked within 8 weeks of the departure then the full payment must be made on booking.  If the balance is not paid within the stated time-frame then we reserve the right to cancel your place on the tour and everything included in the package.  If the balance is not paid in time we will retain your deposit.


In the unfortunate situation that you have to cancel your tour with us the following cancellation charges apply.

In all circumstances your deposit will be retained.  If you have made full payment and you cancel within the 8 weeks prior to departure then additional penalties may apply, up to 100% of tour costs.  No refunds are available once the tour commences.

In the rare event that we are forced due to extraordinary reasons to cancel a tour, you will be entitled to book any other available tour shown on our website.  If the cost is more then you will be expected to pay the additional sum.  Likewise we will refund the difference if the cost of your chosen tour is less than the cancelled tour.  In the case of us having to cancel a tour, we are not liable for travel or any other expenses outside of those included in the itinerary.  A full refund of money already paid will be made to you.
