What is your refund policy? 

Due to the limited number of people per tour, purchased tour tickets are refundable up until 48 hours before scheduled tour date/time only. Any cancellation of tour within 48 hours before scheduled tour WILL NOT be entitled to a refund. This policy gives us the opportunity to fill each tour. Thank you for your understanding.
