Open & Private Tour Cancellation Policy
We’re as flexible as possible with all factors that can change plans, hope the following works for you:
- Open tour cancellation: 50% refund up to 1 week (7 days) before booked tour date.
- Private tour cancellation: Only the deposit (see below) is kept if cancelled up to 3 days beforehand.
- You can reschedule a tour for another date/time, but must notify at least 4 days (open tours) or 24hrs (private tours) before the agreed start time. Please note that rescheduling is down to availability of your guide Andy.
- You can give the booking to someone else at no extra charge, of course please notify us first.
In case of rain: We push on in very light rain (and offer you a free camera cover to help), in case of heavy or dangerous rain we will usually offer rescheduling or you can cancel for a 50% refund until 1hr before the tour starts.
Also: We’re probably not horrible people so will happily consider unusual exceptions as possible. 🙂
Photo tours leave on the advertised/agreed start time.
Please be on time or even 5 minutes early,we’ll try and wait or even call you… but miss us, sorry there’s no refund.
Private Photo Tours Deposits & Payment
A 75€ non-refundable deposit is required to secure your private photo tour booking.
If you decide to pay on the day, the 75€ deposit is still due if you cancel up to 3 days beforehand by bank transfer or online payment (paypal or credit card). If you miss or cancel a private tour within 3 days of your booking then surely note that the full fee (220€) of the private tour is due afterwards.
