Your obligations and responsibilities

It is your responsibility to have all necessary visas, passports, permits, and certificates required for your selected tour as well as any necessary vaccinations and to comply with all applicable laws. But don’t worry, we will discuss this with you.

You should inform us of any medical condition (such as food allergies), personal preferences (such as dietary restrictions), or other needs that may require attention or medication. The best time to do this is when you fill out the contact form on our website. This ensures that we have ample time to make arrangements to fit your needs.

We will make reasonable efforts to convey any dietary restrictions to your tour guides, restaurant and hotel staff, or other service providers. However, we cannot guarantee that any dietary needs or other restrictions can be accommodated. It is your responsibility to ask any necessary questions and make informed decisions about your dietary needs and other restrictions while traveling.

During your tour, your guide may take photographs or video of you and/or your group, and these may be used in our marketing or advertising and publicity material without obtaining any further consent from you or members of your group.

Weather Conditions

Thailand ETCetera cannot be held responsible for weather conditions. Should attractions or events be canceled due to weather, we will try to find alternative options, but refunds for those events may not be available.

Please realize this is just legal stuff we have to cover. The weather in Thailand is pretty standard. The rainy season is rainy, the hot season is hot. People are used to this, and it’s not often that something would suddenly close due to weather. We will give you information on what to wear and what to bring to make your tour more pleasant.
