Minimums and Cancellations
We try to keep our minimum number of people as low as possible for our private tours. Because of this, if a cancellation of one or more of your group members brings you below the required minimum, you as a group must decide whether to distribute the cost of any amounts due among the remaining group members OR cancel the tour.
If you choose to cancel the tour, we will treat each person’s payments as per our normal deposit and cancellation policies. Of course, you always have the option to recruit more group members.
For private trips with fewer than 10 people, a mandatory single supplement will apply when there is an odd number of either males or females who are not sharing a room.
Unless specifically agreed with your Private Tour group organizer, our normal discounts (such as our Early Booking Discount for alumni) do not apply.
Most of our Private Tours follow the same itineraries as the tours we have already set up and run for all our travelers. If you wish us to change an existing itinerary or create one entirely from scratch, we can do so. However, in this case, we will require a non-refundable deposit of $1000 to cover our time investment. If the tour runs, this deposit will be applied to the trip organizer’s tour cost.
