Travel Health & Safety
1. Safety on Tour
Safety of our clients is paramount and we do monitor local events and conditions. If we feel it is necessary to modify an itinerary we will do so and naturally advise you immediately, although this is rare. Every attempt will be made to safeguard your holiday arrangements.
You should be aware of potential hazards as walking amongst mountains, hills and even in cities does involve an element of risk. Terrain underfoot can vary and you may find walking poles a great aid to mobility and they take some strain off the knees.
As the tour leader is responsible for the safety of all group members, he or she may adopt a more cautious approach depending on local conditions.
Do be aware that itineraries planned for some tours may be varied on the spot because of unexpected events such as weather conditions.
The final decision for any change rests with our leader.
We cannot be held responsible for disruption to planned itineraries arising from weather conditions or other situations beyond our control. Every effort will be made to provide alternative activities and to ensure that you have the best possible Tour.
2. Health & Physical Condition
Travelers in all tours should be in good physical condition and prepared to enjoy considerable walking, often over uneven surfaces. Many spectacular views are usually seen from the tops of hills that must be walked up.
We ask you to appraise your own capabilities honestly. In addition, those individuals requiring special attention, treatment or whose condition limits their activities must disclose this information to us.
We reserve the right to decline to accept or retain any person as a tour member should such a person’s health, mental condition, physical infirmity or attitude jeopardize the operation of the tour and the rights welfare or enjoyment of other participants or their own self.
Participants agree not to hold the organizer responsible for any loss, injury or damage to any person, property or otherwise in connection with any accommodation, transportation or resulting from any Acts of God, dangers, incident at sea, fire, breakdowns in machinery or equipment, act of governments authorities, de hure or de facto, wars declared or not, hostilities, civil disturbances, strikes, riots, thefts, pilferage, epidemics, quarantines, medical or customs regulations, defaults, delays, cancellations or any causes beyond our control, for any loss or damage resulting from improperly issued visas or other documents, and that our or its staff will not be responsible for any additional expenses or liability sustained for or incurred by the tour participant as a result of any of the forgoing clauses.
