Tour FAQs

What is the cancellation policy?

When you make a reservation, you close out space for other people and we are obligated to honor your reservation. We do understand that things can happen to change plans, so we have a policy that is fair to all. If you cancel 24hours or more prior to the tour, we will refund you, less the service charge. After that, we will issue you a gift card which can be used for one year. The card is transferrable.
