Terms and Conditions

Enrollment in all tours conducted by The Renaissance Company, LLC (hereafter "the Company") is strictly limited to no more than 20 participants per tour.

 

The Renaissance Company and its representatives act only as agents in making arrangements for hotels, transportation, sightseeing, restaurants or any other services in connection with the itinerary, and they will exercise reasonable care in making such arrangements. However, they do not assume any liability whatsoever for any injury, damage, loss, accident or delay to person and property due to any act of default of any hotel, carrier, restaurant, company or person rendering any of the services included in the tour.

The tickets, coupons, tariffs, rules or contracts currently in use by any carrier, hotel, restaurant or other rendering service shall constitute the sole contract between such contractor and the tour member. Baggage and personal effects are the sole responsibility of the owners at all times. Further, the Renaissance Company and its representative agents accept no responsibility for any damage or delay due to sickness, pilferage, labor disputes, machinery breakdown, quarantine, government restraints, weather or any other cause beyond their personal control.

The right is reserved to cancel or change itineraries or substitute services without notice, and to decline to accept any tour member at any time, when such action is determined by the Renaissance Company and its representatives, at their sole discretion, to be in the best interests of the health, safety or general welfare of the tour group or individual. No carrier shall be responsible for any act, omission or event during the time passengers are not on board its own conveyance.

In the event of cancellation of the Tour due to insufficient enrollment, all deposits and payments already received by the Renaissance Company will be refunded in full within 45 days of written announcement of the cancellation to registered participants. Refund of deposits and payments already received shall constitute sole and complete satisfaction of the Renaissance Company’s responsibility in connection with a cancelled tour. The Renaissance Company assumes no responsibility for losses to participants as a result of any travel related expenses, including but not limited to airline tickets, incurred by participants in direct or indirect connection with the Tour. In view of the statutory or contractual limitations which may apply to personal injury, property damage losses, or cancellation of the tour, the purchase of accident and baggage insurance, as well as Travel cancellation insurance, is strongly recommended.

Finally, the Renaissance Company bears no responsibility whatsoever for any travel arrangements made by individual travelers that do not form part of the published itinerary. Extensions of stay, hotel accommodations beyond those indicated in the program, early arrivals or departures, hotel charges not included in the basic room rate including but not limited to telephone, beverages and meals, and hotel services, and all other arrangements undertaken at the initiative of individual participants are their sole responsibility. No change can be made in group plans or schedules to accommodate such arrangements.

CANCELLATION POLICY

* After receipt of the deposit, cancellation by the participant will be subject to a minimum $250 per person cancellation fee.

* Cancellation after 90 days prior to the commencement of the tour will result in forfeiture of the full amount of the full deposit ($1000.).

* Cancellation after 30 days prior to or “no show” at the commencement of the tour will result in forfeiture of full cost of the trip per person.

All tours are offered on condition of sufficient enrollment. If the offer of a tour must be withdrawn at any time due to insufficient enrollment, all deposits and additional payments will be refunded and this will constitute full satisfaction of all claims by participants on the Renaissance Company and its officers.

My wife and I have traveled extensively but this was by far the best trip we have ever taken.  Tom and Martha P.

The group was the perfect size for conviviality and conversation but small enough to be discrete.  Mary Jo F.

You really found the balance: a richly guided trip and yet plenty of time to experience each place on our own.   Jim C.
