Cancellation Policy

When we schedule a spot for you with Salida Walking Tours, we also plan a tour guide. If there are no-shows, we still incur staffing expenses. For this reason, we do not issue refunds if your tour is canceled less than 24 hours in advance. We will, however, gladly reschedule you for another time. All fees are refunded to you if your trip is canceled due to unsafe weather conditions, but, this is rare. We usually conduct tours regardless of rain or shine or snow.

Weather Policy: We will cancel, reschedule, or postpone tours due to bad weather. We reserve the right to delay a trip up to one hour to wait out inclement weather and then resume the tour. We want you to experience a fabulous tour, but nature cannot be predicted or controlled, and we will not risk our guests’ safety.
