Terms and Conditions

Bookings & Prices

We do our best to provide accurate and up-to-date information on our website, but errors may occur. Please confirm pricing and details with us prior to making a booking.

BOOKING ON BEHALF OF OTHERS: If you make a booking for anyone other than yourself, you are considered the designated contact person for those other travelers. You represent and warrant that you are legally authorized to act on their behalf; that you have obtained all required consents; and that you will inform them of these Terms and warrant that they accept and agree to them. You are also responsible for making all payments due for your booking; notifying us if any changes or cancellations are required; and keeping the other travelers informed of all information relevant to your trip.

REGISTRATION: After you complete your booking, we’ll send you an email containing a link to a secure traveler registration form. For most packages, you must complete this form within 5 days of booking. Let us know if you are unable to complete it within this timeframe, or your booking may be subject to cancellation.

If any option or component you selected is not available, we will alert you and give you the option to modify your booking or to cancel and receive a refund of your deposit.

From the time of your booking confirmation until your final payment; your price may only be changed if: 1) you request Changes or Customizations to your booking; 2) new or increased government taxes or fees are implemented that apply to your package or its components; 3) vendor costs applicable to your package or its components increase. Under any of these circumstances, we will inform you how your package price will be affected.

Once your booking is fully paid the package price will not change, unless: 1) you request Changes or Customizations to your booking; 2) new or increased government taxes or fees are implemented that apply to your package or its components. In either case, we will inform you how your package price will be affected.

Advertised package prices may reflect an “Instant Savings” discount. On occasion, we may also offer price reductions, sale discounts, coupon discounts, or other promotional discounts on certain packages, departures, or services. Such discounts are valid for a limited time, only apply to new bookings, and may have other conditions or limitations. Existing bookings for which a deposit has been received are not entitled to price reductions or discounts that were not valid at the time of booking.

Prices and availability are subject to change until you make a booking and that booking is confirmed. After that, your package price will not change, with some exceptions listed under Confirmation.

Optional Excursions

Any activity, transportation, meal, product, or service listed as optional and not expressly included in the itinerary or price of a package is considered an Optional Excursion. In most cases, these Optional Excursions are offered by Third Party Suppliers. Some may be purchased from us with your booking, while others must be selected and paid for in destination, sometimes in local currency. We cannot guarantee availability of Optional Excursions, and for those paid for in destination, we cannot guarantee the price. If an Optional Excursion you paid for with your booking is not available, we will refund your payment for that excursion. We make no warranties and expressly deny any claims or liability whatsoever, including loss of enjoyment, arising from participation in, or the lack of availability of, Optional Excursions or any information provided by us or our representatives about these Optional Excursions.

AGE REQUIREMENTS: For most of our tours & packages, you must be 18 or older to make a booking, and any other travelers on your booking must be 8 or older at the time of travel. Some packages have different requirements; see the package page or contact us for details. Travelers under 18 years at the time of travel are considered minors. Minors must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older. One adult may accompany up to two minors. Each adult accompanying one or more minors is jointly and individually responsible for the behavior, wellbeing, supervision, and monitoring of such minors. If the consent of a parent, guardian, or any other person is required by applicable law for any minor to travel, the accompanying adult is responsible for securing all consents and documents and ensuring that they and the minor(s) meet all legal requirements to travel, to enter into and depart from applicable countries and regions. We will not be responsible for any fees, damages, or losses that may result from failure to secure necessary consents, permits, and approvals.

TRAVELERS WITH DISABILITIES OR DIFFICULTIES: Travelers requiring any type of special assistance must notify us of their requirements at the time of booking.

ACCEPTANCE OF RISK: You acknowledge that travel, especially to foreign and remote destinations, may involve some risk to your health and safety. The degree and nature of personal risk involved depends on the products or services booked and the location(s) in which a product or service operates. There may be a significant degree of personal risk involved in participating in physical and/or high-risk activities (such as ziplining, snorkeling, etc), carriage by watercraft, or traveling to high altitudes, remote locations, or countries with developing infrastructure. Standards of hygiene, accommodation, and transport in certain destinations we visit are often lower than the standards you may expect in your home country, and there may be a risk of food poisoning, disease, or injury.

By booking with us, you acknowledge that you have considered the potential risks, dangers and challenges, and your own personal capabilities and needs, and you assume responsibility for all such risks. You agree to take all prudent measures in relation to your own safety while traveling, including but not limited to the proper use of safety devices (including seatbelts, harnesses, flotation devices, and helmets) and obeying all posted signs and oral or written warnings regarding health and safety. Absent any negligence on our part, op Top Shore Excursions and our representatives will not be held liable for any claims or causes of action arising from any losses, damages, injuries, or death resulting from failure to comply with safety instructions or warnings or the risks inherent in travel and participating in adventurous activities included in our itineraries or otherwise offered by us or our representatives.

EMERGENCY MEDICAL TREATMENT: Should any medical emergency arise which precludes your ability to consent to emergency treatment when such authorization is required, we or our representatives will endeavor to communicate with your travel companions or previously designated emergency contact to request permission for any necessary treatment. If our representatives believe, at their sole discretion, that time or circumstances do not permit such communication, you authorize our representatives to consent on your behalf to any medical treatment, including all types of medical examinations, diagnoses, medication, treatment, or physician or hospital care, that is deemed advisable by, and is to be rendered under, the supervision of any physician or surgeon. You agree not to hold us or our representatives responsible for actions relating to any such medical or emergency treatment.

LOCAL PURCHASES: We make every effort to give you an opportunity to browse local markets, shops and stores, time permitting. Some itineraries include scheduled stops at specialty stores or factories where you can view a demonstration of a local craft or purchase merchandise. If you decide to purchase these or any other items while on tour, you are responsible for those purchases. We are not responsible for the quality or authenticity of these items. It is always a good idea to comparison-shop and to thoroughly inspect all merchandise before leaving the store or shop, as most stores will not permit you to return or exchange purchased items. Prices may not include shipping/handling fees or customs charges. We are not responsible for the delivery or receipt of any item you purchase while traveling.

LOCAL LAWS: During travel, you must always comply with the laws and regulations of all places visited. Committing any illegal act may result in your removal from a tour and put you at risk of fines or punishment by local authorities, for which we cannot be held responsible.

Passports, Visas & Entry Requirements

We provide information about the requirements for U.S. passport holders to enter each destination we offer. Travelers with passports from other countries should determine the passport, visa, identification, and entry requirements that apply to them. Requirements are subject to change, often without notice, and we suggest you verify requirements with the relevant embassy or consulate. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of each traveler to understand and comply with all entry requirements, including acquiring and carrying the proper travel documents and paying any Entry & Exit Fees. We will not be held responsible for any trip interruptions, cancellations, or costs incurred by failure to comply with these requirements.

PASSPORTS: In general, passports are required for all citizens of the U.S. and other countries traveling abroad. Your passport should be valid for at least six months after your date of return (longer for some destinations), or you may be denied entry. Some countries also require a specific number of blank visa pages in your passport.

The names of all travelers must be provided to us exactly as they appear on their passport, including titles such as Jr. or Sr. and any multiple first, middle, or last names, when you complete our Registration form.

We reserve the right to update or alter these Terms at any time. We will post amendments to these Terms on our website at topshoreexcursions.com/terms/, and any amendment will take effect immediately upon posting.
