Terms and Conditions

1. Reservations and payment:

Many of our longer tours are customized itineraries, such as our Expeditions. Upon booking, we will require a deposit. This deposit depends on the program but we need at least a 30% deposit upon booking. You will have to pay the full amount a week before departure.

You can pay by bank transfer or PayPal.

If a confirmed accommodation is not available, we will provide the best possible alternative, in the same class or higher. If such accommodations are not available, we will compensate by upgrading accommodations in another location.

This doesn’t apply to the tours you can book directly on our website. For these trips, we require full payment.

2. Insurance:

You are responsible for having proper and adequate travel insurance for the duration of the trip. We provide limited medical insurance according to the regulations of the Tourist Authority of Thailand.

3. Cancellation Fees:

Please send us an email to notify us of the cancellation of the tour. See below our cancellation fees. We only count working days.

Our office is open daily, except on Sundays and public holidays.

You can cancel free of charge up to 7 days before the start of our tour. Between 7 days and 48 hours before the start of services, we will charge you 50% of the tour costs. If you cancel less than 48 hours before the start of our tour, we will charge you 100% of the tour costs.

We reserve the right to give no refund in case of cancellation of the remaining program, in full or partial, by the travellers after they started the tour.

4. Complaints and Feedback:

Fortunately, we receive very few complaints. We appreciate if you communicate a complaint directly and immediately to our guide. You can also contact our office. We want to solve grievances as soon as possible. If there are any refund to be paid by us, we would like to do that while you are still in Chiang Mai.
