those advertised if necessary. If a decision needs to be made, in terms of changing the itinerary due to unforeseen circumstances, like forest fires, floods, breakdowns, heavy rain, thunder storms or anything else that
cannot be foreseen at this time, it will be at the discretion of the tour guide in charge.
If an excursion needs to be cancelled during the tour, due to sudden weather changes that can put our customers at risk, we will discuss rescheduling options with you. Where it is not possible for you to reschedule the

participating in the tour, the same rules will be applied.
