The decision of the leader as to the conduct, itinerary and objectives of the tour is final. If, in the opinion of the leader, your behaviour or physical condition is detrimental to the safety, welfare and well-being of the group as a whole (which are the paramount considerations), or if the leader considers your general wellbeing will be put at risk by continuing with the holiday, you may be asked to leave the tour without the right to any refund for unused services.
