We anticipate this trip to fill quickly, so we encourage you to register now. Space will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 25 participants. Please read all of the fine print before you register.
To register, click on the REGISTER button, complete the form and make your payment. Please include a deposit of $1,000 per person (or the full amount if you wish). The balance of $1,700 (plus single supplement where applicable) must be received no later than June 1, 2019. We reserve the right to cancel a reservation if full payment is not received by this date, as we anticipate a wait list and have overseas commitments to finalize. You will be sent a confirmation packet via email within a week of registration with detailed information to help you plan your trip.
You may pay by credit card securely online or by sending a check (preferred) payable to Toni D’Anca at 1015 Orilla del Mar #3, Santa Barbara, CA 93103. If you are registering for two people, please use two separate registration forms. If you are registering for yourself and anticipate having someone attend with you, be sure they register now before the program fills and closes or they will be put on a wait list. We must have formal registration forms and payment from both participants. Let us know if you plan to share accommodations, if you would like us to find a roommate, or if you prefer a single room.
Cancellation and Refund
Registrations are not transferrable. All cancellations must be made in writing and received by June 1, 2019 for a full refund less a $500 processing fee. Cancellations received from this date to July 31, 2019 receive a full refund less a $1,200 processing fee. There is no refund for cancellations received after this date.
If you leave the program for any reason, there is no refund for unused services. If the program is cancelled or postponed by us, due to enrollment level or other unforeseeable circumstances, all fees will be refunded in full. If the program is cancelled or postponed, we assume no responsibility for participant’s cancelled air tickets or other prepaid transportation arrangements.
Travel and Insurance
We will begin with 5 nights at our hotel in Rennes and end with 3 nights at our hotel in Paris. You can fly to Paris and take a train to Rennes or fly into the Rennes Bretagne Airport. You will need to make your own transportation arrangements from the airport to your first hotel and back to the airport from our last hotel in Paris. Detailed recommendations and ground transportation options will be provided in the confirmation materials. We highly recommend travel insurance that covers the costs of emergency medical, medical evacuation, trip cancellation/interruption, and cancel for any reason. More information will be sent with your confirmation materials.
Important Health Note
We welcome all travelers, but request that you be in good physical condition in order to enjoy the tour to the fullest. As a participant you must be able to keep up with the group, walk a few miles, traverse uneven terrain, climb steps, and get on and off busses on your own. Additionally, the tour is not wheelchair accessible. We regret that we cannot provide individual assistance. We reserve the right to remove at any time anyone whose physical condition, in our opinion, compromises the operation of the tour or detracts from your enjoyment or safety, or that of other participants. In that event, we assume no financial responsibility for any unused portion of the tour. The signed registration form is also a release of liability, required for all participants.
By registering for this tour, participants specifically waive any and all claims of action against Evans Lansing Smith and Toni D’Anca for damages, loss, injury, accident, delay, or death incurred by any person in connection with the program. Neither will we be responsible for any injury, death, loss, accident, delay, or irregularity through neglect or default of any company or person engaged in carrying out the purposes for which tickets, vouchers, or coupons are issued, or monies collected. No responsibility is accepted for losses or expenses due to sickness, weather, strikes, wars and/or other causes. In the event it becomes necessary or advisable for any reason whatsoever to alter the itinerary or arrangements, including faculty and/or hotel substitutions, such alterations may be made without penalty. Baggage and personal effects are at all times the sole responsibility of the participant. We reserve the right to decline to accept a participant or, as stated above, to remove a person from the tour if it is determined to be in the best interest of the health, safety, and general well-being of the group. We will make every effort to operate our tour as planned, but reserve the right to make itinerary changes as necessary.
