In order for your activity to start at the correct time, we ask you to arrive 5-10 minutes early when possible.
If you are going to be late, kindly call us :

In London: Coming Soon
You can also send us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We will inform your Welcomer to do his/her best to slightly postpone the departure (up to 30 minutes but he/she will then have to shorten the activity). In cases where you cannot make it and miss the departure, no refund will be given.
Sometimes we use public transportation when needed (Paris is a big city!), but we also have activities that include a private van. In each activity page you will find a “What’s included” section indicating the transportation included with your activity.
Our activities take place even if the weather has decided to turn into rain or snow. Your Welcomer will do her/his best to adapt the itinerary to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
If an activity is cancelled for any reason that falls under our responsibility (a Welcomer’s absence, sickness, reservation mistakes, etc.), we will of course try to find the best alternative, as we want the best for you! If our proposal is not agreeable to you, we will refund you within 10 business days. In the event that circumstances outside of our control force us to cancel a tour (unexpected closings, cases of force majeure…), we will unfortunately be unable to refund you, though your Welcomer will do his/her best to make your time with us as enjoyable as possible.
Our prices are indicated in Euros, Pounds and US dollars (based on the daily conversion rate) to give you an indication. If you book an activity in Paris, you will be charged in Euros, but if you book an activity in London, you will be charged in Pounds.
We accept payment with all international credit cards (VISA, Mastercard, American Express), as well as PayPal!
Completely! Your bank information is encrypted thanks to our advanced SSL protocol. It will never remain on our site, since all payments go through our payment system provider (Crédit Agricole).
