These terms and conditions, together with any other written information brought to your attention before we confirm your booking, shall form the basis of your contract with ‘us’, ‘we’, ‘our’, Town Trails of Tenby or Marion Davies in respect of the relevant tour experience (together referred to in these terms and conditions as ‘tours’) to be provided by Town Trails of Tenby or Marion Davies. Please read these terms and conditions carefully and contact us if you have any queries.
Within these conditions, ‘you’ and ‘your’ means all persons named on the booking. By making a booking, the ‘lead passenger’ specified in the booking will be deemed to have accepted these conditions on behalf of all participants within the booking. For the avoidance of doubt, ‘written’ or ‘in writing’ shall, where used in these terms and conditions, include email.
We endeavour to ensure that the information and prices in our leaflets and on our website are accurate; however occasionally changes and errors occur and we reserve the right to correct prices and other details in such circumstances. You should check the current price and all other details relating to the arrangements that you wish to book before your booking request is made. All tours are sold subject to availability.
In the event that your booking constitutes a ‘linked travel arrangement’ you should refer to the section below entitled ‘Your Protection’.
1. Walking tours
Bookings for scheduled walking tours can be made via our website at www.guidedtourswales.co.uk by telephone, or by contacting us by email at email@example.com
Your booking is not confirmed until we have issued your booking confirmation. At that point a binding contract will be entered into between us. We cannot be held responsible if any tour in which you are interested becomes fully booked or otherwise unavailable prior to full payment being received from you.
For scheduled walking tours, bookings can be made in person (before the start of the tour if: a) running and b) space available, but it would be advisable that you book and pay in advance on our website at www.guidedtourswales.co.uk
Please ensure that you read these terms carefully, and check that the details in your booking and/or ticket are complete and accurate, before continuing with the Booking.
You are obliged to pay the price appropriate to your status:
(a) Children are aged between 3 to 17 years old, and must be accompanied by an Adult.
(b) Adults are everyone from 18 years old and older.
The prices applicable to each of the above are set out in our price list, as updated from time to time.
You are not permitted to make a booking for a lone child(ren) under the age of 18 years old, and if you do, they will be refused entry.
Group bookings of more than 20 people will, at our discretion, be able to negotiate a discount and may be offered as a private walk.
2. Private Tailor Made Tours
For single day tours, or tours of more than one day, which are private tailor made tours, full payment will be required at the time of booking and (unless otherwise agreed), a booking confirmation will only be issued once we have received payment from you.
The date, start time, length and/or end time shall be specified in your booking and/or confirmation.
These single day tours, or tours of more than one day may include various elements such as transport, meals, car/bus hire, and entrance to attractions, guided tours and/or other value added services.
Please contact us to discuss your requirements further.
In the event that we offer any private tailor made tours the relevant provisions of these terms and conditions shall apply. If we quote a price for a tailor made tour, which is based upon a specified number of individuals then, in the event of the size of the group increasing in size, we may alter our quoted price accordingly to reflect the revised numbers.
Any changes made following the issue of your booking confirmation may be subject to an administration fee, which is at the discretion of the Town Trails of Tenby. The fee is typically 10% of the total cost of the tour and may be subject to any costs or charges incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers.
Where a booking is made more than 3 months prior to the date of the tour, a 20% deposit will be required to secure the booking. Where a tour is to take place within 3 months, full payment may be required at the time of booking.
Admission fees or guided tours of specific venues are not included in the tour price unless expressly stated in the tour description or prior request by you, tour organiser or lead passenger.
In respect of the cancellation charges outlined in these terms, other services booked by us on your behalf may also result in you being liable for cancellation charges levied by the relevant third party provider. Any such costs or charges should be payable to us, so that we may remit them to the relevant provider on your behalf.
Changes made by us
While we shall do everything reasonably possible to provide your tour itinerary and/or services as planned, we reserves the right to alter itineraries or transport if required to do so. The majority of any such alterations will be minor and we will try to advise you of them at the earliest possible date.
In the unlikely event, however, that we are required to significantly alter a material part of your tour, we will notify you of this as quickly as possible in order to enable you to decide how you wish to proceed. In such event you will be entitled to:-
- take an alternative tour of equivalent quality if we are able to offer that.
- cancel your booking and obtain a full refund of all monies paid by you.
Please be aware that the nature of travel involves risks and unpredictable weather and road conditions and we cannot, therefore, guarantee any departure or arrival times at any particular points of a tour itinerary.
Changes made by you
If you wish to change any part of your confirmed booking, you should inform us in writing as soon as possible. This should be done by the tour organiser or lead passenger named on the booking. Whilst we will do our best to assist you, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet your request.
Where we can meet a change request made by you, any changes made may be subject to an administration fee (as advised by us–regarding your specific tour).
You may be required to meet any extra costs incurred by us (and any costs or charges incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers) in making the requested change. Where we are unable to meet your change request and you no longer wish to travel on the basis of the original booking, this will be treated as a cancellation of your booking and cancellation charges may be payable by you, as outlined in these terms.
For the avoidance of doubt, no changes will be finally confirmed until full payment of all applicable charges referred to above have been received by us.
Cancellation by us
We will only cancel tours due to unavoidable and extraordinary circumstances which are outside our control or which might jeopardise your safety. If we cancel your tour then we will notify you as soon as possible and we will always refund you, in full, for all sums paid by you.
Cancellation by you
If you wish to cancel your booking after our booking confirmation has been issued, you should inform us in writing as soon as possible – the effective date of cancellation will be the date upon which we receive such written notification. In the event of cancellation by you, cancellation charges may be payable, as set out below.
For scheduled walking tours or extended tours, one day tours and half day tours the following cancellation charges shall apply (depending on the date of cancellation):-
- Cancellation more than 48 hours before the tour departure but less than 7 days: 50% of the whole tour price unless otherwise agreed in writing by us.
- Cancellation less than 48 hours before the tour departure: 100% of the tour price unless otherwise agreed in writing by us.
- In the event of a ‘no show’ you will be charged 100% of the tour price.
Private Tailor Made Tours
Our standard cancellation terms for tailor made tours are as follows*:
- Cancellation more than 8 weeks / 56 days before the tour date: 0% of the price;
- Cancellation between 55 and 30 days before the tour date: 20% of the price;
- Cancellation between 29 and 7 days before the tour date: 50% of the price;

*Please note however, that the standard cancellation terms above, may differ depending on the cancellation terms of any third party supplier providing any element of your Tailor Made Tour. The standard terms above are therefore subject to any variations advised at the time of quoting the price of your tour.
You are responsible for ensuring that you are at the correct departure point at the correct time.
We cannot accept any responsibility for your failure to do so, nor any costs or expenses incurred as a result of you failing to do so (which will be treated as a cancellation by you).
No monies will be refunded for any missed departures or unused services.
Refusal of Travel
The Company reserves the right to refuse to carry any person whose conduct or manner is likely to cause offence or upset to other passengers. The Company also reserves the right to refuse travel to any person who is experiencing medical symptoms likely to cause ill health to others. It is therefore vital that you ensure that you are fit to travel on the departure date.
In either of the cases mentioned above, full cancellation charges shall be applied us and the we shall have no further liability to that passenger or to any person travelling with them.
