Cancellations and refunds
With a regular tour it's most likely the tour guide has started the tour and may have moved away from the starting point. The tour guide is instructed to begin the tour at the designated time. With a private tour the tour guide will wait for you, but please contact the tour guide to notify them that you will arrive later.
No, we're afraid not. If there are extenuating circumstances for being unable to come (on time), please send us an email. Maybe we can offer you the opportunity to join another tour (on another day).
You can get a full refund when you cancel the tour at least 24 hours before the start of the tour by sending us an email.
Normally this isn't the case and the tours will go ahead come rain or shine, as there are many rainy days in the Netherlands. The tour may only not go ahead in extreme weather conditions or due to major transportation issues, in which case the tour may be cancelled (highly unlikely). When a tour is cancelled, you will receive a notification by telephone or email.
The regular tours need a minimum of 4 participants. When a tour has not reached this minimum, the tour will be cancelled. You will be informed at least 12 hours before the start of the tour. In this case you will receive a full refund.
