2017 hotels and itineraries may differ from the 2018 programs presented in this brochure. We will make every effort to operate tours as disclosed in this brochure, but circumstances beyond our control may arise which require modification of itineraries, hotel substitution, changes in transportation, inclusions or staff accompanying the trip. We will avoid such changes when we can but reserve the right to make modifications.
There is no smoking on any transportation. Disabilities requiring special attention must be reported when making reservations. We will make reasonable attempts to accommodate special needs but cannot provide individual assistance. We are not responsible for any denial of services by carriers, hotels, and other independent suppliers. Tours require walking over uneven surfaces and you assume responsibility for your personal safety. Activities, lodges, and camps may require a signed liability waiver.
Alexander+Roberts packages and operates these programs solely as an independent contractor. The tour services described in this brochure, including without limitation transportation, lodging, and sightseeing, are provided by the carrier, hoteliers,
and other suppliers that are independent contractors and not our agents, employees, partners, or joint venturers. We issue tickets, vouchers, and other travel documents for such services merely as an agent
for the companies that furnish such services. Such tickets, vouchers, and other travel documents are subject to all terms and conditions of the respective suppliers (some of them may limit or exclude the supplier’s liability). We are not responsible for any loss of or damage to property or death or injury to persons, resulting from any act or omission of any supplier providing any tour service or any other person or entity or caused by strike, war, weather,
quarantine, sickness, government restriction or regulation, or any other cause beyond its reasonable control, including supplier’s decision to withdraw and/or cancel a tour for any reason. The tour participant expressly waives all rights, which he or she may have against us in connection with the foregoing. Under no circumstances are we to be construed
as a carrier under contract for safe carriage of the passenger or his or her baggage and belongings. We reserve the right to remove a client from a tour at our sole discretion.
All matters concerning these tours and services shall be governed by, and administered and interpreted according to the laws of the State of New Hampshire (without regard to conflicts of laws principles). Any unresolved dispute or controversy arising under or
in connection with the services we provide shall be settled exclusively by arbitration, conducted before the American Arbitration Association in Boston, Massachusetts, in accordance with the rules of that body then in effect. In addition, the arbitrator and not any federal, state, or local court or agency shall have exclusive authority to resolve any dispute relating
to the interpretation, applicability, enforceability, conscionability, or formation of this contract, including but not limited to a claim that all or any part of this contract is void or voidable. The arbitrator shall not have the authority to add to, detract from, or modify any provision hereof nor to award punitive damages to any injured party. A decision by the arbitrator shall be final and binding. Judgment may be entered on the arbitrator’s award in any court having jurisdiction. Each party shall be responsible for the respective fees and expenses of their legal representation and the costs of arbitration shall be shared equally.
Legal proceedings against us may be instituted only in a state or federal court within the State of New Hampshire, and any claim involved in such proceedings shall be decided in accordance with the laws of the State of New Hampshire. Any legal proceeding against us must be commenced within one year following the date of tour completion.
