The following FAQ and cancellations sections outline terms and conditions. When signing up for and paying a deposit for a GRECOPATHS tour, the tour participant is stating that they have read, understand and agree to the terms and conditions as they are set forth on this web site.

PRICING-ΜULTI DAYS PACKAGES
Pricing is displayed in EUROS, based on double occupancy and includes all taxes. Prices are based on an annually set exchange rate. Due to currency fluctuation and other factors beyond the control of Grecopaths, tour prices may change without notice at any time. Price changes are not retroactive and tour participants who have already registered for a tour will not be affected by any price changes.
There is no price reduction for participants arriving late or leaving a tour early. Single supplements are available on a limited basis at additional cost. The actual cost of a single supplement for each tour is listed on the overview page for each tour.  A single supplement is not meant to penalize solo travelers but reflects the actual cost difference when splitting the cost of a room since the two participants are sharing that cost vs. a single traveler paying the entire cost of the room themselves.

In the case of computer or human billing error we reserve the right to re-invoice Tour Participants with correct billing.
