Limitations of Liability

The responsibility of GL Tours is strictly limited. GL Tours organizes, promotes and sells tour programs using independent ground operators, hotels, airlines and other suppliers (collectively, “Suppliers”). We do not own, operate, manage, control or supervise these suppliers and therefore we cannot be liable for any acts or omissions, including any negligence, gross negligence, or reckless or willful acts, on their part. By utilizing the travel services of the suppliers, you agree that you will look to such suppliers for any accident, injury, property damage or personal loss to you or to those traveling with you, and that neither GL Tours nor any representative of GL Tours shall be liable. Without limitation, GL Tours is not responsible for acts of God, equipment failures, vehicle accidents, illness from food or otherwise, detention, assaults, theft or criminal activity, annoyance, delays, quarantine, strikes, failure of any means of conveyance to arrive or depart as scheduled, civil disturbances, terrorism, government restrictions or regulations, and discrepancies or changes in transit or hotel services over which it has no control. Reasonable changes in the itinerary may be made by GL Tours or its suppliers where deemed advisable for the comfort and well-being of the passengers. On advancement of deposit to GL Tours, the depositor therefore agrees to be bound by the above recited terms and conditions.
