Booking in advance is not always necessary. However, we will only reserve your space if you have done so. Reservations will be confirmed on receipt of 100% of the tour price (unless otherwise stated). Bookings are only recognised if paid in full.
The prices listed on the website are valid from 30th March 2018 until 30th March 2019. Tour prices do not include entrance fees, hotels, meals (unless otherwise stated), ferry costs (when needed – guides’ ferry cost to be paid also), or gratuities.
We accept the following: Paypal payments, bank transfers, and cash and credit card payments in person.
20% charge for cancellation more than 45 days before tour departure
50% charge for cancellation 15-45 days before tour departure
For cancellation less than 15 days before tour departure, any refund would be solely at our discretion
Customers may also be liable for costs of any cancelled accommodations and any other 3rd party costs such as attraction and activity costs.
Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) becoming an increasing concern and the unprecedented volume of cancellations and refunds being requested, we are now having to over-ride our cancellation policy as detailed above.
This will now mean we are no longer offering refunds of any sort and we are promoting a ‘Don’t cancel-Postpone’ policy.
This policy is a ‘holding credit’ policy for those who do not wish to/unable to travel at the moment due to travel and health restrictions but who will do so in the future. Any payments made towards a tour booking will be held for a future date of your choosing within the next 24 months and can be applied then, with no additional charges or fees. To reiterate, 100% of any payments made, can be used within 24 months from notice of postponement. If any of our customers would like more information or to inform us that they are no longer able to visit on the original booking date(s) please email us at – [email protected]and we will be happy to assist. Many other operators are offering similar credits and it is a really good idea to contact each one to see where you stand at this time. Ultimately, we would like to ease the stress of you having to postpone your trip and hope to see you in the future. Scotland will be waiting for you when you do visit. We wish good health and safety to you all and advise that you to stay informed through official Government advice.
If we cancel the tour for any reason (excluding the above), we offer a 100% refund on the tour OR an alternative date agreed by the customer. Refunds may take as long as 30 days to clear depending on the card issuer or bank’s policies.
