Cancellation / Rescheduling
Should a client cancel the tour within 2 weeks (14 days) of the first date of the tour, a minimum fee of 25% will be retained as non-refundable. Any accommodation venue cancellation fees and rulings are over & above this and will be advised on request. Should the guide cancel any part of the tour due to weather or other circumstances beyond his control and the client fails to reschedule the event, a minimum fee of 25% will be retained as non-refundable.
