Program changes

The organizer reserves the right to postpone the tour/event, cancel it or change the program and prices. The organizer will provide information about the changes and their impact on the price as quickly as possible. Postponements, cancellations and program changes before and during the event may be necessary for weather and other objective reasons, including epidemics or pandemics, as well as for security reasons. In such a case, the organizer is authorized to carry out a similar tour, which is considered correct fulfillment of the contract, even if the services are not identical in detail but are equivalent overall. If a change of the guide intended for the tour has to be made before or during a tour for material or health reasons, this is also considered to be the correct fulfillment of the contract. The guest(s) acknowledge that changes may occur on each tour. The scheduled timing of the event cannot be guaranteed. Any additional costs will be borne by the guest(s).
