If severe weather affects any of the spring locations where we conduct guided tours we will either cancel and refund or offer alternative tours. Please observe that only the tour operator will make weather related cancellations based upon unsafe weather conditions and only on the day of the tour. In the unfortunate circumstance of a cancellation due to weather, this will be made on the day of the event as soon as the tour operator determines the existence of weather that is outside of our operating policy and considered unsafe. Guests will be notified of this and provided the option of an alternative date or a refund. Please understand that No weather cancellations will be accepted from guests.
