CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

You have booked a culinary experience with us, excited to be part of this new activity, but sometimes things don’t work out exactly as planned: a flight canceled, a change of travel plans, etc. As much as it pains us, we understand that cancellations are sometimes necessary and that’s why we reimburse the major amount possible according to the prior notice given. Indeed, our experiences involve local partners who are also affected by the cancellation, especially with short notice. 
For all these reasons, please consider the refund policy as following:

- 90% of payment, if the cancellation is made 15 or more days prior to a tour;
- 75% of payment, if the cancellation is made within 14 to 7 days prior to a tour;
- 50% of payment, if the cancellation is made within 6 to 3 days prior to a tour;
- No refunds will be made for cancellations within 72 hours prior to a tour;
- No shows will receive no refund.

If you need to cancel your participation in an experience for any reason, please send us an email at contact@exploreandtaste.com as soon as possible.

In the event that Explore & Taste is obligated to suspend an experience due to factors outside of its control, the company shall offer an alternative in the form of another experience or a different date, according to the availability of the client.
