We insist on small groups – that’s what makes our tours and clinics special – so there can be no rescheduling or refunds within 48hrs for day tours and rentals, and 30 days for multi-day tours and clinics unless a suitable replacement is found.
We reserve the right to cancel or alter any clinics or trips due to weather or insufficient registration. In these cases, refunds will be issued and we will do our best to reschedule.
