Guided tours are available for groups of up to 30 people per guide, unless otherwise stated.

Changes by OTCBM: Should OTCBM be required to alter a key part of the contract, the client can (after being informed of the change by email from OTCBM) either agree to the alteration or replacement of scheduled services (both parties sign a contract amendment or new contract detailing the changes) or cancel the contract for a full refund of any monies paid. Any difference in price is deducted from the amount paid by the client, any overpayment will be returned to the client.
Group delays: The timetable detailed on the booking form must be adhered to. Please notify OTCBM of any delays. Any delays will be deducted from the original duration of the service. However, in the event of the group being 30 minutes late and with no information from the group, the service providers are no longer required to provide the service. In this event, the full amount is due. The service provider or guide is free to continue the service or not, subject to their availability and extra charge.
