General terms and conditions

Booking and contract

By booking a service on the website www.guidedfjordtours.com the customer accepts these terms and conditions. After booking, the client will receive a written confirmation by email from Guided Fjord Tours. The contract only becomes binding on receipt of this written confirmation. The customer must make the payment before the start of the tour. Third parties have no authority or authorisation from Guided Fjord Tours to make any agreements or promises that change or go beyond the terms of the contract or the services. Third parties include the partners appointed by Guided Fjord Tours.


Payment

Please note that all online bookings of "Private" and "Guided" tours require payment of 20% of the total price at the time of the booking. You will be informed by e-mail when you need to pay the balance of your booking, which is 14 days before your departure date. All "Self-guided" tours and "Fjord cruise" must be paid in full by the time of booking. Payment methods accepted are PayPal, credit cards and debit cards. 


Cancellation

For cancellations received up to 14 calendar days before the scheduled departure, a 20% cancellation fee will be charged.

For cancellations received within 14 calendar days before the scheduled departure date a 100% cancellation fee will be charged.

 

Self-guided tours and cruises are sold as final sales and will not be refunded.

Services

The contractual services result from the specifications by Guided Fjord Tours. These are available online for each booked service. The description of services can change from the booking date to the event date without Guided Fjord Tours being obliged to inform you thereof. Guided Fjord Tours will of course inform you of important changes if possible. Depending on the season or the day of the week, it may be that different versions of the same tour are offered - some tours are performed differently in winter and summer. The Guided Fjord Tours tour guide may deviate from the intended stops, routes and duration of the tour due to the weather or other conditions that cannot be influenced by Guided Fjord Tours. Additional agreements to the contract or the services are possible, but must be confirmed in writing by Guided Fjord Tours. If individual services are omitted, the entire contract amount is nevertheless due. Guided Fjord Tours will try to provide a suitable replacement in advance or on the event date. However, no claims can be made in this regard.
