Exceeding Expectations

We’ve set out to exceed expectations on all our adventure tours around the globe. The reality is that it’s not always smooth sailing – there are sometimes unforeseen challenges – and the difference between a good operator and a world-class operator (with unparalleled satisfaction & safety ratings!) is an unwavering attention to detail and personalized care.

We understand that you’re making a commitment to us

This is your trip of a lifetime and you want it to be perfect! Our Trip Assurance to you is a sign of our confidence in what we do and our ability to deliver exceptional adventure tours - rain, hail, or shine! So here's what you can expect from us.

Flexible Deposit

If for any reason you can’t travel on the trip you’ve booked, just let us know no later than 90 days (180 days for Africa and Himalayas trips) before your departure. We’ll hold on to your deposit as a credit for you to use towards the balance of your next trip for up to 24 months, so you can be sure your travel funds are in safe hands.

Change your trip

We understand plans change. So to transfer your deposit to another trip, just let us know no later than 90 days (180 days for Africa and Himalayas trips) before your trip and we'll take care of the rest.

Refund for cancelled trips

Already paid off your trip and can’t travel? No worries! Just let us know no later than 90 days (180 days for Africa and Himalayas trips) before your trip you'd like to cancel and we’ll provide a refund less your transferrable deposit, which can be used towards the balance of your next trip.
