Responsibility: These tours and retreats are arranged by Diana Osberg, (DBA Mia Terra Retreats), located in Van Nuys, California, your tour operator, affiliates and contractors. We act only as an agent for the suppliers of transportation, accommodations, food and other goods and services connected with the tour or retreat, all of which are independent contractors. We in no way own or operate the vehicles or facilities to be used during the tour or retreat, and assume no responsibility for the acts and/or omissions of these independent contractors, their employees, agents or representatives. All bookings are accepted subject to the conditions imposed by the independent suppliers and the laws of the countries in which the services are provided, and we will make no refund for a supplier’s delay, cancellation, overbooking, strike or force majeure, or for elements of the trip you do not use. We reserve the right to withdraw a tour or retreat or any part of it, and to make such alterations in the itinerary as we deem necessary or desirable for your comfort, convenience or safety. We reserve the right to substitute consultants for our retreats, as we engage busy professionals who are sometimes called away on professional projects with schedules they are not able to control. We reserve the right to decline to accept or to retain as a member of any tour any person at any time. Your booking is subject to these terms and conditions, and any claim or dispute shall be governed by California law and subject to exclusive jurisdiction and venue of the court located in Los Angeles County, California, USA.
Disabilities: Any disability requiring special attention should be reported to us at the time you make your reservation. We will make reasonable attempts to accommodate special needs, but we are not responsible for any denial of services by carriers, hotels, restaurants, and other independent suppliers. Travelers requiring extraordinary assistance must be accompanied by a companion who is capable of and totally responsible for providing the necessary assistance. Said companion would be responsible for all fees and costs incurred for the tour or retreat. There are some situations in which it is not possible to accommodate for special needs, for example, as in the case of a tall ship sailing voyage or horseback riding tour.
Passports and Visas: Passengers are responsible for ensuring that they have the proper travel documents and MUST CHECK with the respective consulate(s) or visa agency to determine whether any visas or passports are required. Passports are required to be valid for at least 6 months after the date of travel.

For tours that allow children, all children under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Accompanying adults are responsible for the safety of their children including to provide any necessary safety equipment (such as infant/child seats) where appropriate. IMPORTANT: Many countries have adopted practices to prevent international abductions of children. If a person under the age of 18 years will be traveling with an adult other than his/her parents, or with only one parent, it is recommended that a notarized letter be written by the parents, or non-traveling parent, granting authorization to travel, including the dates of travel.

All prices are based on current exchange rates and until final payment are subject to change without notice.

TRAVELERS WITH DISABILITIES:
In order to fully enjoy your Mia Terra Retreats event, we recommend that you select a trip that is suitable to your physical capabilities. Non-accessible tours and retreats are clearly stated for each retreat or tour. Tour participants requiring any form of assistance are required to notify Mia Terra Retreats in writing prior to reservation for review and our agreement. Additionally, the tour or retreat participant must be accompanied by an individual responsible for providing those services. That individual must register and cover their travel costs, including accommodations and included meals. Tour managers, guides, drivers or other tour, hotel, ship personnel are not able to provide such assistance. Escorted tours are fast-paced, often requiring lengthy walks over uneven terrain. Clients with special needs may be better served independently. In order to participate in escorted tours, passengers must be able to understand and follow instructions given by the Tour Director at all times. Passengers may not interfere actively or passively with the successful operation of the tour, including but not limited to emergency situations.
Wheelchairs & Walkers:
International Tours, Workshops and Retreats: Hotels and ships outside of the United States are not required to comply with ADA requirements and therefore may not have ramps, wide entryways or elevators to accommodate disabled passengers or devices such as wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters. Due to physical constraints and space limitations, wheelchairs, walkers and motorized scooters may not be taken aboard motor coaches.
USA Tours, Workshops and Retreats: Pursuant to the Americans with Disabilities Act (the ADA), Mia Terra Retreats tries to accommodate disabled travelers to the extent possible and consistent with the specific tour or retreat itinerary. Nevertheless, you may find that certain tour or retreat features may not be accessible to the extent that you require a wheelchair, scooter, or other special equipment to participate. We cannot provide individual assistance to travelers with wheelchairs or other mobility devices. We regret that some itineraries cannot accommodate wheelchairs or motorized scooters. Passengers are required to advise Mia Terra Retreats of their accessibility requirements prior to booking in order for Mia Terra Retreats to determine if reasonable accommodations are available. Mia Terra Retreats and its agents will endeavor to accommodate special access needs, however may not be held responsible in the event that we are unable to do so.
Service Animals: Service animals cannot be accommodated on international escorted tours. Passengers on USA escorted tours who require a service dog because of a disability should check with Mia Terra Tours & Retreats prior to booking a tour.
Mia Terra Retreats reserves the right to remove any person from a tour who has not provided the required notification, has not received written confirmation from Mia Terra Retreats, or does not comply with these regulations. All related expenses, including those to return home, will be borne by the passenger.
Flights: Flights are not included in most Mia Terra Retreats events. It is advisable to book your flights early, as some adventures will mandate that you connect to small domestic flights within some countries, particularly when the destination is in a remote area. Mia Terra Retreats is not responsible for sold out flights and airline schedules. Where indicated, tour and retreat participants may be required to provide flight itineraries, as some tours and retreats include airport transfers.
Contact Information: Pursuant to TSA Secure Flight requirements, passengers are responsible to provide Mia Terra Retreats with their name as it appears on their passport (or other government-issued I.D. when traveling), date of birth, gender, address, phone number, and email for all passengers. Passengers must ensure that names are correctly listed on their invoice. Mia Terra Retreats will not be responsible for passengers who do not receive an invoice or documents or are denied boarding due to inaccurate information. For international tours and retreats, participants will be required to present their passport to the hotel during check-in.
Hotel Accommodations: Unless otherwise noted, all rooms are shared rooms with private facilities. Special requests such as bed types, smoking preference and connecting rooms are subject to availability. Room selection in all cases, unless otherwise reserved, is strictly at the discretion of the hotel’s management on a run-of-house basis. Room descriptions are noted for each tour and retreat on the registration page. All hotel rates are based on Mia Terra Retreats agreements with its suppliers and are not negotiable. Hotel check-in time is generally not before 4:00 p.m. and check-out time is prior to noon. Please be sure that adequate arrangements for accommodations have been taken into consideration when a late night flight is being used. If a day room is included in the itinerary, check-out will normally be 6:00 p.m. We reserve the right to make substitutions with hotels of equal standard. There will be no refunds for any difference in the cost of those accommodations.
Hotel & Ship Profiles: Mia Terra Retreats’ hotel and ship profiles are based upon information provided to Mia Terra Retreats by hotel and sailing partners and their representatives, including images and descriptions of individual properties. Star-ratings may differ from country to country. Mia Terra Retreats does its best to maintain current information, however is not responsible for any inaccuracies, changes in description details or amenities, or images provided by third parties.
Meals: As specified in each itinerary. Meals are based on the hotel’s, restaurant’s or ship’s buffet or set menu. In general, beverages are not included, unless specifically stated. Although Mia Terra Retreats cannot make guarantees, every effort will be made to honor special dietary requests submitted in writing at least 72 hours prior to departure to email@example.com.
Transfers: Transfers are provided only as indicated for each tour or retreat, by car, minibus, or motor coach. If airport transfers are provided in your package, and you deviate from the arrival and/or departure dates as stated in the itinerary, you will need to have the option to add transfer services to your reservation at your expense. Your arrival transfer is guaranteed for up to one hour from your scheduled arrival time in order to compensate for minor delays. Mia Terra Retreats or the transfer company will not be responsible for flight delays, for any reason, beyond one hour from your originally scheduled arrival time. In case of a delay, whether due to flight delay, immigration and customs, or time spent reporting baggage damage or loss, it will be your responsibility to make other transfer arrangements such as a taxi. Transfer costs are not refundable and any additional expenses will be your responsibility. The cost of a transfer is more expensive than hiring a taxi, as a Mia Terra Tours & Retreats transfer necessarily includes round trip service, or ‘dead-leg’, meaning that our driver must come to the airport, hotel or pier only to pick you up and necessarily loses a one-way fare. Often the places of call (airports, seaports, hotels) demand entrance and parking fees, where drivers may have to wait for up to an hour. Mia Terra Retreats’ transfer drivers are not employees of Mia Terra Retreats.
Sightseeing & Itinerary: Will be operated by motor-vehicle, its size dictated by the number of participants. The number of participants may vary during the tour. Times listed in itineraries are approximate and meant only as guidelines. Some itineraries may have early morning start times for sightseeing in order to complete the touring during daylight hours or avoid afternoon heat in tropical and desert climates. It is your responsibility to arrive on time for all scheduled flights, sails, and package components. Arriving late may be considered a “no-show”, in which case you will not be eligible for refund for the unused service(s). We cannot guarantee the number of passengers who will be on any given tour. You may find that you are traveling with a sizable group or only with your own companions. Services, however, will remain constant no matter the number of tour participants. Mia Terra Retreats imposes mandatory coach seat rotation with no exception. Persons requiring any assistance or who have any form of disability should refer to section “Travelers With Disabilities”. On dates including, but not limited to religious holidays and national celebrations, some monuments and sites may be closed. On these occasions, touring itineraries may be amended to reflect these closures. Occasionally, during holidays and certain periods, and/or due to unforeseen circumstances including weather conditions there may be last-minute changes, sometimes after arrival, in affecting the sequence of the tour, locations visited and/or hotels. Therefore, we reserve the right to adjust the sequence and/or substitute any hotels with others of similar category. In such cases there will be no cost adjustment. National monuments and tourist sites regularly undergo renovations, which can obscure the monument’s view. No tour will be canceled due to renovations, however Mia Terra Retreats will decide based on the conditions whether to amend an itinerary. Mia Terra Retreats itineraries may contain suggestions for activities for your leisure time; these suggestions do not constitute a recommendation nor an endorsement of any specific service provider and the decision to participate in any such activities should be made independently and with due consideration. Mia Terra Retreats is not responsible for any activities not expressly included in its programs.
Rail: Once full payment is received, Mia Terra Retreats will select train times, rail tickets will be issued and are fully non-refundable. Except where requested in writing prior to final payment, rail tickets will typically be reserved for departures between 9 am and 12 noon, subject to availability. Passengers may not request alternative train times. Once issued, rail tickets are valid for the dates and times specified. Some exchanges must be done locally at the station due to fare restrictions. Changes may be subject to local charges, fees, and fare increases. Once the booked train has departed, changes are no longer possible nor can amendments be completed on board the train. Mia Terra Retreats does not control seat assignments which are entirely at the discretion of the rail companies. Once rail tickets are issued they are fully non-refundable and non-changeable.
Optional Sightseeing Tours: A limited selection of optional sightseeing tours are available for purchase at any time until the final payment due date. Those associated with escorted and guided programs will be available for purchase locally based upon availability. Some optional tours require a minimum number of participants and may not be operated; in such cases, the tour company will attempt to notify you locally, and you will receive a full refund upon your return home. Optional tours may be conducted in more than one language. Optional tours are subject to standard cancellation terms including being fully non-refundable once a trip has commenced.
Non-Operation of Escorted Tour: Escorted tour packages and retreats are based upon a minimum number of participants. Cancellation of any tour for lack of participation will be advised at least 30 days prior to the tour’s departure, and all money will be refunded. Mia Terra Retreats will not be held responsible for any costs relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of airline tickets or visa fees. Voluntary cancellations due to political instability, acts of terrorism, government intervention or US State Department warning will be subject to the above fees, provided the program is deemed (by Mia Terra Retreats) able to continue. Should Mia Terra Retreats elect to cancel a departure for any of these reasons, every effort will be made to obtain refunds from suppliers, however no guarantees can be provided on their behalf.
Group Harmony: To ensure the desired group synergy, Mia Terra Retreats reserves the right to accept, reject or expel any individual who is deemed disruptive or incompatible with the interests of the group. All expenses to do so will be borne by the passenger.

Cabin Assignment (Sea Sailing): Cabins (when available) and berths are assigned on run-of-ship basis within 30 days of departure. Mia Terra Retreats cannot guarantee a specific assignment.

Ship and Itinerary Changes: Sailing/cruise itineraries and ships are subject to change without notice. Furthermore, sailing/cruise ships may be chartered and/or departure dates canceled, in which case all monies will be refunded. Mia Terra Retreats takes no responsibility for ship substitutions or itinerary changes imposed by a sailing/cruise operator and is not responsible for any losses you may incur including the issuance and/or cancellation of airline tickets or visa fees.
Water Level: River water levels may cause part or all of the cruise itinerary to be operated by motor coach. If this becomes necessary, Mia Terra Retreats will endeavor to provide equal or similar services, however no tour will be canceled and no monetary compensation will be made for those changes. Neither Mia Terra Retreats nor the owners or operators of the vessels shall be liable for delay or inability to perform any condition caused by or arising from strikes, lockout, civil or labor issues, explosion, fire, collision, vessel breakdown or damage to the vessel, its hull, machinery or fittings. Neither shall they be responsible for issues caused by or arising from civil commotion, riot, insurrection, war, government restraint, requisitioning of the vessel, political disturbance, acts or threats of terrorism, inability to secure or failure of supplies including fuel, Acts of God, or other circumstances beyond their control.
Medical Services: Many ships do not carry a doctor or nurse on board. Should medical attention be required, local services will be contacted, if available. Resulting charges will be the responsibility of the passenger. Mia Terra Tours & Retreats and the sailing/cruise ship operator are not responsible for the services provided.
Luggage: Mia Terra Retreats escorted tour buses allow one piece of luggage per person, plus carry-on bag. Additional baggage will be subject to a handling charge of $100 per piece. Soft-sided luggage, such as a duffel bag, is required for tall ships voyages and limited to one full size duffle and a sail bag. As Mia Terra Retreats will not be responsible for loss or damage to luggage and personal belongings, you MUST report any loss or damage immediately at the time of the incident and obtain a written report from the local authority for submission to your insurance provider. If your luggage is lost or damaged by the airlines, a baggage claim form MUST be filed with the carrier before leaving the airport. We recommend that you use brightly colored luggage tags, straps or other identifiers to help you locate your luggage upon arrival or to describe it in the event that it is lost.
