TCT tours are physically demanding
To enjoy your tour, you should be in good shape. On the most active days we may average several miles of walking (often over uneven paving stones), lots of steep stair-climbing and a fair amount of standing while sightseeing. Before you leave, try to get in shape and walk at least an hour every day.
Tour itineraries are subject to change
Travel is full of surprises and we need to be flexible enough to take advantage of whatever comes along so that we may provide you with the best possible tour. Uncompleted portions of the tour itinerary are not cause for refund.
To reserve a seat you must agree to these Tour Conditions and provide a deposit of $1,000. per person. For deposits and final tour payments we accept personal checks, money orders, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. There is a 3% processing fee if using a credit card for your final payments. Your final tour payment is due March 1st, 2017. Missing the final payment deadline may result in your being removed from the tour so please make a note of your final payment due date, as shown on your written tour confirmation, as it is your responsibility to pay your final payment in a timely manner.
Cancellations and refunds
You are eligible to receive back 100% of your deposit for two weeks after signing up. After that time, the full deposit is nonrefundable.
Final tour payments are ineligible for refund under any reason should you cancel. This is why we strongly encourage travel insurance to protect you. We recommend you check out InsureMyTrip.com. We are in no way affiliated with them. Nor do we receive commission from them. It’s just a company that many of our travelers have used over the years.
Although we want everyone to have a good time, it sometimes happens that someone participating in a tour can misbehave or do things that are incompatible with the safety, comfort or convenience of other members of the tour. You agree that in those circumstances we have the exclusive right and discretion, to expel someone, even you, from a tour at any time, without any claims or complaints by you against us.
Any pre-existing physical, mental, or emotional disability that may require attention or treatment must be reported in writing prior to the beginning of a tour.
