Frequently Asked Questions on Private Tours

GIL201p

We charge a 20% deposit on our website for securing a seat on our tours. The remainder of the cost (80%) is then charged upon arrival. You can pay with cash or card upon arrival. We accept all major cards and currencies. The deposit is non refundable, but can be forwarded to a new booking (either a new tour or a new date of departure). The reason we do not refund the deposit is that costs for the booking have already been created, we have credit card fees, online advertising costs and service desk employees.
