(External) activity and excursion providers (SIC Tours)

Guides and representation in each destination

Without doubt, our guides are our true ambassadors.  We provide a multilingual team of professional guides.  All of our guides are licensed and registered with the relevant authorities and undergo extensive training prior to leading tours.  Most of our guides work on a freelance basis and we hire them according to our needs. Our foreign language speaking guides are well selected based on their skills and language proficiency; however their language proficiency might not always be 100% fluent or accent free, and we expect flexibility, cooperation and diplomacy from our clients.

All our guides / tour leaders are Indonesian. All our foreign language (English, Dutch, French, German, …) speaking guides are officially certified to guide in the language. However, the foreign language is not their native mother tongue, and might not be 100% fluently or accent free. Flexibility and cooperation from the guests is required.

There is never a guarantee that the same guide or tour leader will accompany the guests during the entire stay. It might happen that different guides will handle the guests.

During some visits at sightseeing objects the guests might be guided by local temple or palace guides based on SIC (joining-in with other travelers or groups, and only in the English language).

Excursions inside the Bali National Park ,snorkeling trips around Menjangan Island and dolphin spotting trips in Lovina, are only guided by local guides and only English Speaking. The assigned tour guide will not join the excursions, unless pre-booked and with a supplement.

We keep the right, with or without prior notice and without any refund or compensation, to replace a ‘certain language’ (fe. Dutch, French, German,) promised guide to replace with another ‘English’ speaking guide. This due the limited availability of foreign language speaking guides during some periods, and the promised ‘certain language’ guide might fall sick or might not operate due to other reasons, while no replacement is available.

Complaints and irregularities

We consider complaints as valuable feedback to improve service delivery levels. We request that service delivery failures or customer concerns, be reported during the customer’s stay, to one of our representatives, or through the 24/7 assistance number provided to each client.  It is our aim to solve any problems or irregularity on the spot. We reserve the right to refuse to take action on any perceived irregularities where they are submitted to the company 14 days or more, after the customer returns back home.

Hotels & Accommodation

It might happen that the provided hotel or accommodation, its facilities, breakfast or location is below the client’s expectation. It is our service to assist the client by proposing alternative accommodation when available.  If the alternative accommodation, or room upgrade, is more expensive than the original accommodation, this surcharge will be charged to the client on the spot, including potential cancellation fees of the original accommodation, unless we have a written confirmation from the agent that the agent guarantees to pay the surcharge.  If the alternative accommodation is cheaper than the originally booked accommodation and accepted by the clients, no refund will apply, under any circumstances.

It might happen that the room location is below the client’s expectation.  This is solely the accommodation provider responsibility;  however it is our service to communicate with the hotel to find the best solution.  We will take no responsibility in this instance.

Ticketing only

We may act as a middleman to provide a ‘tickets only’ service for domestic airlines, trains, boats, ferries, etc.

We charge cost to cost, based on the exchange rate of the day.  We will also charge a handling fee per ticket.

We disclaim any responsibility whatsoever regarding the services of the operator, including delays, annulations, incidents and accidents.  

We only and solely book and provide the ticket.

Regarding the domestic airlines in Indonesia:

We strongly prefer to make use of the services of Garuda Indonesia Airlines, when possible and when available.

For routings not provided by Garuda Airlines, or when the price is a concern, we will propose alternative carriers when available.  It is our hope that the agent and client understand that all  domestic Indonesian carriers (except Garuda Indonesia Airlines and its subsidiaries like Citylink and Xplore and AirAsia)are actually banned (black listed) to fly within the EU areas, and that some domestic Indonesian carriers have a notorious reputation when it comes to service, with regards to flying on time, and safety.

Most domestic Indonesian, Thai and other regional airlines are directly bookable online. We strongly recommend to the tour operator or client to book the tickets directly online, without our intervention.

However, as an act of service we can also issue those tickets in exchange for a handling fee.

By providing tickets for domestic or regional airlines we also disclaim any responsibility for any incidents which might occur, except for issuing and paying the tickets.

(External) activity and excursion providers (SIC Tours)

We make use of the services and products provided and operated by third party external specialized companies. Our aim is to source and co-operate with the best available companies in terms of quality, service, reputation and safety; and not in sourcing for the cheapest ones.  We solely act as an intermediary for bookings and payments.  By participating in one of those external company’s activities, we automatically disclaim any responsibility and liability concerning any of the services, injuries, deaths or loss, whatsoever.  On request, we can provide you with the insurance policies of those companies and products, as it has been provided by them to us.

Activities (fe. rafting, cycling, trekking, snorkeling, fast boats etc..) are generally operated in SIC with other international guests, and English speaking drivers, and includes the hotel transfers (if included) based on SIC.

(SIC) in the proposal means “Seat In Coach”, meaning that generally the Tour, Transfer, Excursion” read “Activity” will be shared with other participants. The Activity is generally organized by a 3th party. We source and contract the best available 3th party  organizers, based on their reputation, quality and safety record, and not based on the best pricing. However, we only act as a middlemen for the reservations and payments, and do disclaim any responsibility regarding the quality, delay’s, accidents, and whatsoever. All Terms and Conditions fall automatically as those one of the organizer, and are directly between the participant (client) and the organizer. If one not agree with our disclaimer prior to the formal booking, we strongly advise to book the activity directly with the activity supplier. The assigned private tour guide or tour leader, will generally not join the activity, and the tour guides assigned by the 3th party organizer are generally English speaking only.

It should be understood that if a ‘sunrise’ or ‘sunset’ is included in the proposal, we can never guarantee the quality, and might mostly be of a good quality during the dry seasons.

It should be understood that we cannot guarantee the exact sights, or none sights at all, of animals in National Parks, open nature or open sea (>fe. the dolphins in Lovina).

Users of prescribed drugs or medications are advised to bring with them a doctor recommendation in English and the original copy of the purchase ticket.

Traveling in Indonesia and S.E.Asia in general requires a flexible and adventurous altitude towards all kinds of unexpected situations and circumstances.

At any time a guest should behave properly and dress properly, according to the local customs and expectations.

Any what ‘we’ consider as unacceptable behavior, towards for example our guides, drivers, hotel and restaurant staff, hotel staff, local people, might result in a one way decision from our side that we exclude the guest to participate in the further program and we keep the right to stop the handling of his/her arrangements and our responsibility.
