Cancellation and Refund Policy

Bookings Made Directly from Our Site

Refund Requests
For our regular food tours, cooking classes and in-home events, we offer full refunds if cancellation requests are made more than two weeks in advance of the event date. Bookings canceled between two weeks and 48 hours in advance of the event date will receive a 50% refund. After that time, no refunds will be available for cancellations or for failure to attend the event. For shore excursions, airport layovers, customized private tours or other small group private events, we offer a 50% refund if cancellation requests are received at least 48 hours in advance of your event. After that time, no refunds will be available for cancellations or for failure to attend the event.

While we understand that last-minute situations may arise that prevent you from attending your event, we are still obligated to pay for any guides, vehicles, vendors and hosts who are expecting you. For that reason, we strongly recommend taking out a travel insurance policy that protects you from last-minute cancellation of activities due to sickness, missed flights, canceled or delayed port-of-call visits, accidents and other unforeseen circumstances.

Date Changes
We’re happy to try to accommodate date change requests, but can’t promise that we’ll have an opening that works with your new plans. In the event we can’t make a date change, refunds will be offered according to the terms above. Please visit our Contact page to get in touch.

Bookings Made from a Partner Site

We are unable to process cancellation and refund requests for bookings made from a third-party site. Your booking is bound by the cancellation and refund policies of that site. Please review your confirmation email for details of how to make a cancellation or refund request.
