Solo travelers and single supplements:
If you are traveling solo, you will board with another tour member of the same sex. If you would like a single, private room, we will provide that if it is available. Please note that single rooms tend to be the smallest and most basic rooms the hotel has to offer. It may not have a bathroom en suite.
Cancellations and refunds:
Your deposit is nonrefundable as I may also be subject to non-refundable deposits. However, there are more people who want to go on this tour than we have slots available, so your deposit may be transferrable. If you have to cancel, ask. I will maintain a waiting list.
Refunds requests initiated while the tour is in progress will not be honored for carrier related delays, personal problems, business problems, accidents, emergencies, government obligations (such as jury duty or lawsuits), inability to provide travel documents, self-inflicted injury or harm, problems related to substance abuse, personal injuries, weather, or medical issues.
You may wish to consider purchasing travel insurance to cover health, travel interruptions, loss of luggage, or additional costs as no insurance is provided.
If we cancel a tour you have reserved, the entire amount you have paid will be refunded to you within 14 days after the tour’s cancellation.
