Where this is necessary, notification will be given to tour members. No refund will be made for any unused portion of the tour.
The prices of the tours are based on tariffs and exchange rates in effect at the time of itinerary publication, and are subject to adjustment in the event of any change therein. We reserve the right to decline acceptance of, or to retain, any person as a member of any tour. Baggage is at owner’s risk entirely.
