The Important Stuff
In circumstances beyond the control of Vietnam Backpacker Hostels, such as weather, mechanical failure or restrictions placed by National Park Authorities, we reserve the right to change the route, itinerary or provider of one of our tours.
NO refunds are given in these circumstances, or in the event of any delay, shortening or alteration of the trip. We cannot 100% guarantee pick-up and drop-off times and are not liable for passenger failure to connect with other services or any associated costs incurred.
LIABILITY – Whilst we make every effort to safeguard our clients and their belongings, we cannot be held responsible for personal injury or loss due to events, which are beyond our control.
IMPORTANT – Passengers should note that adventure travel involves a higher than normal risk. Travel insurance is NOT included; we strongly recommend that passengers have their own travel insurance against illness, injury, loss/damage to personal belongings and not being able to travel on the confirmed departure date.
HOW MUCH LUGGAGE CAN I TAKE? – When booking any of our tours, we will let you know what you need to bring in detail in your confirmation. Generally, all you will need is some swimming attire, sunscreen, and the ability to enjoy a good time on the water! All of our tours include a SUP guide, all equipment necessary to participate, drinking water, and food. We also bring along our waterproof camera to catch all the candids for your new profile picture.
DISCLAIMER – As much as we would like to share our love of SUP with any and everybody, a few things are required from all paddies. Due to being on water during a majority of tours, all paddlers must have the ability to swim. Any and all skill levels are able to SUP, but keep in mind it is a physical activity. We don’t recommend SUP for those who get easily seasick or cannot stand for long periods of time. Let us know of any conditions and we’ll do our best to accommodate! Cheers!
ONLINE BOOKINGS – All online bookings need to be confirmed and paid for 24 hours prior to departure. This allows us time to set up your boards and prepare everything in order for you to have a rad time.
