Although our tours are generally mild when it comes to physical activity, we do encounter times when our guests might need to move quickly including ingress/egress of our tour vans. Severe weather conditions can change rapidly without warning so getting our guests into the safety of shelter if viewing weather events outside of our vans is imperative. Some of our down-day activities might also include low exertion hikes or long walks for sightseeing. Although we do our best to secure hotel properties that have elevators, some may require the use of stairs. Those with hearing, visual or mental disabilities could pose a risk to themselves from a safety standpoint if they are unable to receive immediate direction from our touring staff. As such it is important to note that you must be able-bodied enough to accomplish these tasks from a physical and mental standpoint while on tour with us.
Additionally, the elderly or those suffering from obesity or other physical handicaps might find themselves uncomfortable on our tours. We spend a great deal of time on the road in our vans, and although spacious, some might find the van seating and long trips and activities we encounter on tour uncomfortable to themselves or those around them. Those suffering from medical ailments must also consider that our tours are sometimes a great distance from large-scale medical care or emergency services as we tend to travel in rural areas.
If you feel that any of these medical conditions or disabilities apply to you, our tours might not be the best fit for you and we apologetically urge you to choose not to book with us. By agreeing to this verification you are confirming that you are able-bodied and that none of these conditions apply to you. If you agree to this verification and we find that you are not actually able-bodied while on tour with us, we reserve the right to cancel your tour in person at any time, without a refund. If you feel that you might have mild forms of any of these conditions and want to ask more about the possibilities of what they might entail for you while on tour, please reach out to us prior to booking to help answer your questions via our “Contact Us” tab at the top of our webpage so we can better assist you in your decision to book with us.
