TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Tours

All tours are private. A standard formula usually covers distances ranging from a few dozen to approximately 100 miles (e.g. Mont Saint Michel tour). Of course, the personalised formula or tours starting in various ports (e.g. Le Havre, Honfleur, Cherbourg, St. Malo) may involve longer distances.


Tour fares

You are booking a vehicle (9-seater Opel Vivaro van) for up to 9 hours/day and the rate depends on duration but also on the number of participants. If you want to calculate the amount due individually you just have to divide the overall cost by the actual number of participants.

Please note that PayPal charges a 6% commission at every transaction and this will be added to the deposit. Payments in Dollars or Pounds are accepted as well but please beware that an 8% conversion fee shall be added to the balance.
