Custom private tours Terms & cancellation policy:
Although we make every effort to accommodate the needs of our guests, our trip dates and capacities are limited by logistics and the agencies that manage our activities. Our cancellation policy is intended to reflect the fact that when we accept your reservation, we have not only made logistical commitments, but have turned others away from booking the space on that trip. When a reservation is made and confirmed with a deposit or full payment, it becomes an assured/guaranteed reservation. At which point New Mexico Wine Tours is committing to hold that date for you by removing it from the market. If you decide to cancel your reservation, it may not be possible for us to re-book that space (or spaces), resulting in a very real loss in opportunity, capacity and time; especially in the case of cancellations that occur close to the reserved trip date.
With this is mind, we must firmly adhere to the following policy:
