- In order to keep you safe we reserve the right to alter a tour if conditions mean we have to do this for safety reasons during the tour. If this happens the tour is not covered by our money back guarantee. Prior to the tour departure, if we feel we can still operate the tour but it requires some changes to keep it safe, we will discuss this with you at check in time but prior to departure so that you have the opportunity to pull out of the tour and get a refund prior to departure. If you agree to the changes but then once you have completed the tour decide you didn’t like them it is not covered by our guarantee and no refund will be made. So please make sure you understand what you are going to do prior to departure. Changes might be because river levels are to high or low on the day for the trip you have chosen so we will go to a different river that has the correct levels to give you a great trip. We have 8 rivers and our type of terrain means you can have lots of rain in one but none in another nearby!
