- If you decide to cancel your booking with us because of concerns related to Covid-19, you will be subject to the Terms and Conditions (see above) that you agreed upon when you made your booking and paid your retainer fee and/or balance for the tour.
- This may result in forfeiture of a portion or all of the fees paid, including your retainer fee. See below to determine the extent of your liability.

Many of the multi-day workshops are all inclusive (meals, travel, accommodation, etc) and complications may arise for any unvaccinated participants due to these inclusions. If you are unvaccinated and wish to attend one of these multi-day workshops you will need to contact us first so that we can make a decision on whether or not we can accommodate you. The decision will be based on a matter of logistics, public health advice, and participant safety.
