9. Course Content and Weather
The programmes we publish in our literature and on our website and describing the courses are designed to be illustrative in order to best explain the scope and type of activities you will be undertaking. It is very unlikely that any one programme could be or would be followed precisely as it is published. Several factors outside of our control will determine this and dictate what can be accomplished reasonably during your tour. The most influential factors will be the weather and the physical fitness of course participants.
Taking these factors into consideration and the aims of the course as described in our literature the Tour Director will construct the best programme possible. The Tour Director will review and may alter the programme as the course progresses in response to the changing influence of these factors.
Once the course is underway the Tour Director guides instructors or leaders may change the activities at any time. This applies to all courses.
Circumstances may arise where we are forced to alter dates duration or accommodation before a tour starts. We will try to inform you of any such changes as soon as we know of them.
Our Tour Directors guides and coaches will do their utmost to ensure that any problems are solved for the benefit of the tour participants as a whole. Signing the booking form signifies your acceptance of the Tour Director’s authority to make decisions affecting the group or individuals. For instance the Tour Director may require an individual or individuals to leave the tour if they believe that a person or person’s health is at risk if a person is not coping or may not cope with the technical physical or mental demands of the course if an illegal act has been or may be committed or conduct may become or has been detrimental to the safety enjoyment or well-being of the group or of any individual within the group.
