Conditions for reservations and payment
A booking is binding once we have agreed on a date and both I and the Guest confirms the reservation by email or phone. Note that an unconfirmed reservation is not valid.
A booking is normally done at least seven days before a trip, but if you do want to book a trip on short notice, you can call me to check the possibilities. However, note that there is a significant risk that I will be occupied when booking on short notice. However, if time permits, I can accept reservations until about an hour before a tour.
Payment for the tour is to be completed no later than 7 days before the tour unless otherwise stated. Failure to pay within the time specified cancels the reservation.
A cancellation is free of charge until 7 days before the tour. After that, the guest will be charged a administration fee of 20 €
If the guest cancels less than 24 hours before the departure, the guest will be charged half the tour cost.
If no cancellation is done prior to the tour and the guest does not show up, the guest will still have to pay full price.
If the tour is canceled after payment has been made, the guest will be refunded according to the specifications above. Note that I will not pay any transfer fee charged by your bank.
Exempt from cancellation policy is force majeure. In case of things like sudden illness, serious accidents, extreme weather or similar the guest will be offered a full refund or a new tour later. However, the guest have to be able to demonstrate force majeure.
If a tour is canceled by the guide because of force majeure the guest will be offered a new tour or a full refund.
Should a guide fail to show up at a tour, the guest will be offered a new tour at half the price or a full refund.

If a guest behaves in a manner that jeopardizes the safety of the guest, other guests, guide, or the public, or otherwise fail to follow the guide's instructions, the tour is discontinued immediately and without any refund.
