Liability: Garden Expeditions has taken all reasonable steps to ensure that proper arrangements have been made for the tours advertised in the brochure, and that the suppliers of the services described are efficient and reputable. We have made the travel arrangements with transportation carriers and other suppliers of services connected with the tour, all of which are independent contractors. Garden Expeditions in no way owns or operates the vehicles or facilities to be used during the trip, and does not guarantee or assume responsibility for the acts and/or omissions of suppliers of services. It is possible that unforeseen circumstances will arise where an inferior vehicle is used as relief or replacement. In such situations, no refund will be issued. All bookings are accepted subject to the terms and conditions imposed by Garden Expeditions and suppliers of services, including airline, rail, coach, hotel, restaurants, and other companies, firms or persons concerned with the tour.
Garden Expeditions reserves the right to cancel a trip, change the itinerary, hotel and gardens at any time for any reasons at Garden Expeditions sole discretion based on practical considerations, including but not limited to weather, availability and quality considerations. You are responsible for, release and hold harmless Garden Expeditions from, passport, visa and safety conditions in travel destinations. Garden Expeditions reserves the right to decline to accept any person as a member of risk to the health and safety of themselves or others.
In the event that a passport is lost/stolen or one of the group members is taken ill or has an accident, Garden Expeditions will assist to the best of its ability but must reserve the right to carry on with the tour. It may be necessary to leave the tour member to rejoin later at his/her own expense.
We cannot be held liable for any loss or expense suffered by you as a result of your late arrival at the start of your tour, or at any time during your tour, for other than reasons within our control. Any willful damage to property is your sole responsibility and Garden Expeditions will not be responsible for any costs incurred due to such actions or measures taken up by the various authorities or principals. Damage will be charged to you and must be paid for at that time.
All the facts about gardens, facilities, accommodations and other services are checked so that they are as accurate as possible before publishing. The information is compiled in advance and changes do happen that are not within our control. If a major change is necessary, we will keep you fully informed.
