What is the cancelation policy and deadlines for payments?
We must make our commitments to the hotels, bus company and tours, etc several months in advance. Thus it will be necessary to know as soon as possible those who wish to take a tour. A 50% deposit is required upon booking. This is non-refundable 90 days prior to your tour date. However, if a refund is requested more than 90 days prior to your tour date, this can be accommodated, minus a $300.00CDN administration fee. We can’t refund credit card processing charges. Final payment for all tour costs is due 90 days prior to your tour date.
What is included in the price?
Everything is included in the price of the tour with the exception of meals, extra sight-seeing tours, etc. The price includes airport/hotel shuttles in Toronto; all coach transportation; 11 nights of accommodations; 2 boat cruises (excluding the optional cruises); 5 breakfasts; 2 lunches and we will make the arrangements for your tours at the Bethels.
Are children welcome?
