General Information and Conditions

  • Tashiding Travel is the travel section of Ian Graham’s small independent company, Tashiding. Under this name Ian organises and guides cultural and spiritual journeys to the Himalayas, Egypt and Greece. He works in cooperation with local tour companies and agents who are able to provide all transport, accommodation and local guides when required. All these companies are officially registered in their respective countries.
  • Tashiding is registered at the Chamber of Commerce in the Netherlands, KvK No 58233385
  • Tashiding Travel is currently not affiliated with any official travel organization such as ABTA (UK) or SGR and NVR (NL). Anyone traveling on one of Tashiding Tours’s trips needs to be aware of this fact and have a suitable travel insurance of their own.
  • Tashiding Travel and Ian Graham cannot be held responsible for any changes in the itinerary caused by circumstances beyond their control, such as natural disasters, strikes, political disturbances or decrees from concerned authorities which have influence over the course of the trip.
  • Everyone taking part in one of Tashiding’s journeys needs to be in normal good health. They are not recommended for anyone who might suffer from altitude sickness at above 4000 metres or,  in the case of Egypt, anyone who is unable to swim.
  • Every participant needs to carry valid travel documents, such as a valid passport and a visa for the concerned countries. Most countries outside the EU demand that passports be valid for at least six months after departure from the travel destination. The traveller is fully accountable for the consequences in the event of absence of valid documents. Tashiding Tours will provide the details about the application of the necessary visa.
  • Travels will only take place if there is a minimum number of participants. This number varies according to the specific destination. In the event of a lack of participants, Tashiding Tours can decide to cancel the travel. For the tours to Bhutan and Sikkim, this will happen not later than 10 weeks before the start of a travel. For the tours to Egypt and Patmos, this will happen not later than 6 weeks before departure date. The signed-up participants will get back all the money they have paid (in advance).
  • In the case of Bhutan, prices quoted in your invoice are calculated on the basis of the exchange rate between the euro and US dollar at the time of planning. In the event of a change in the exchange rate leading to an increase in the cost of the tour, Tashiding reserves the right to increase the total cost up to a maximum of 10% of the original price advertised.
