If, for any reason, the tour is cancelled by Pictours Portugal you will be given a full refund for the amount you paid for your tour. (No refunds will be given for other expenses you may have incurred such as airfare and transportation, visa applications, gear purchases, etc.)
Insurance, Waiver, and Passports
Each participant will be required to have trip cancellation and travel medical health insurance for tours more than three days. Passports need to have an expiry date of no less than 6 months prior to the end of the tour for those coming from other countries.
Participants in every tour will be asked to sign a Release and Indemnity Form with Pictours Portugal when the tour starts.
The itinerary may be subject to change and replaced with similar experiences. Portugal is known for sunny skies and balmy breezes. In the event of heavy rain, some of our photographic instruction will be indoors or in covered areas of historical sites.
No refunds will be given in the event of an itinerary change.
Airfare and Airport Transfer
Airfare and transportation expenses, other than those listed in your exclusive group itinerary will be the responsibility of each photographer.
You are welcome to make your own room bookings and/or airport transfer directly with the hotel should you decide you want extra days and plan to arrive earlier or stay longer.
Our scheduled Photography Tours do not require strenuous activity. However, you will be walking on uneven surfaces, cobbled streets, up stairs and small hills, as well as getting in and out of vehicles. You will need to be able to carry your own camera gear. If you have any health limitations, please discuss these with Pictours Portugal before registering.
We will do our best to make this a wonderful photography holiday for all of the participants.
