Tour Guide Reservation & Tour Guide Tours Cancellation Policies

In the event that you decide to cancel your tour guide reservation you will not be eligible to receive a full refund of your 10% deposit. If a reservation cannot be confirmed, your 10% deposit will be fully refunded. Cancellation request must be submitted to tour guide by email, not by telephone.

In some cases, the tour guide may cancel a tour due to weather or other circumstances. Every tour guide reserves the right to cancel a booking prior to your tour departure date and in the event that the tour guide cancels your tour you will be eligible to receive a full refund of your 10% deposit.

ITG is only financially responsible for the 10% deposit which you make through the DiscoverTourGuides site. A refund of any payments that were made to your tour guide prior to your tour departure date is to be arranged with your tour guide. The tour guide may offer cancellation terms that are more generous than the ones outlined above. Please confirm the individual tour guide cancellation policies with a message from the tour guide.

Amendment Fees: Any changes (i.e. date, location, tour, etc.) made to a reservation after successfully submitting the order online, will be subject to a minimum $30 Amendment Fee (per change). The $30 Amendment Fee also applies to such changes where an additional passenger is added onto an existing reservation. Seats will be confirmed within one to two business days. To cancel a customer from a reservation, the regular Cancellation Policy will apply.

The $30 amendment fee is a minimum tour change fee. If changes are too frequent and urgent, additional fees may apply to alter or change the tour in addition to the $30 amendment fee. Paying the $30 amendment fee does not guarantee a change can and will be made.

To cancel a passenger free of charge from a reservation with promotions such as "Buy 2 get 1 Free or Buy 2 Get 2 Free" within 7 days of departure date, please refer to the "Pricing" tab of your product page for penalty fees. If cancellation falls beyond 7 days of departure date, the $30 Amendment Fee will be applied, per person.
