Any failure of the Chicago Detours to enforce or exercise any provision of this Agreement or related right shall not constitute a waiver of that right or provision.
11. Change/Cancel a Reservation: When you purchase a tour through the Chicago Detours tour company, you are purchasing a reserved spot on one of our walking tours. This reservation entitles you to a spot on that walking tour, which will leave at the stated time and date. All sales are final. That means we do not grant refunds for any reason at all. Tours promptly leave at the scheduled departure time and date, so don’t be late!
We are willing to reschedule reservations in some circumstances. When you reserve space on a tour, you take up a spot that could be filled by someone else. If you try to reschedule at the last minute, we probably can’t sell your spot. Therefore, we only allow customers to reschedule a reservation if they notify us more than 48 hours before the start of their tour. We can only offer times and dates where we have open slots for additional reservations, and we make no guarantee that we can find an appropriate replacement tour date. If acts of nature prevent us from providing a tour at the scheduled time, we will arrange for a new time and date. Please do not hesitate to if you have any questions or concerns about our policy.
