We will not refund or cover any cost or expenses incurred due to unacceptable behavior.  

Food and Beverage Consumption  

All food and beverages consumed during the tour are from third-party establishments (i.e. vendors, cafes, markets, and other related food establishments). We play no role in procuring ingredients or preparing the food/beverages served. We are unable to take any responsibility for any sickness, illness, or injury caused to you or your companions as a result of visiting these establishments or consuming their food and beverages within.  

For any experiences which involve procuring ingredients from the market and cooking them for a meal, the guest agrees to take the full liability of the foods consumed and will not hold us or any of our third-party vendors/contractors responsible.  You understand, accept, and take full responsibility for the potential risks and hazards of consuming foods and beverages during the tour.  

Dietary Restrictions, Allergies, and Medical Conditions  

You are required to let us know of any (a) dietary restrictions, (b) allergies, and (c) other medical conditions related to either walking or eating/drinking, at the time of booking a ticket for the tour.  While there is no guarantee of our being able to accommodate any dietary restrictions, we will do our best to do so.  In the case of dietary restrictions or allergies, it is imperative that you remind us of the allergy before consuming any food/beverage during the tour, so that we can verify with the food establishment regarding the ingredients.  

While we will do our best to see that allergies that have been communicated to us are well taken care of, we cannot take any responsibility for any incidents resulting due to allergies caused to you as a result of food or beverage consumption from third-party vendors during the tour.  In the case of any extreme allergies or medical conditions, we reserve the right to request you to not attend and will refund the full price of the ticket booking.

Every individual is required to book a ticket using our reservation system and advance payment must be made at the time of booking via our online payment system.

The tour price does not include any items that the tour participant may choose to purchase beyond what is already provided by the tour guide. In such cases, the tour guide will either collect the extra payment from the tour participant or the participant may pay the third party vendor directly on the tour.
