By purchasing a ticket to an experience or hosted in full or in part by EdibleSwitzerland, you indicate that you have read, understood and accepted these conditions.

These terms of purchase are between you, the purchaser and the purchaser’s guests (together “you” or “the Participant”) and the hosts (together “we” or “us” and includes any partners, affiliates, and crew and Jennifer Burke of EdibleSwitzerland).
Normally, all EdibleSwitzerland events proceed rain or shine. In the event of rain, EdibleSwitzerland will arrange for shelter for the event or an alternative location. However, certain events will be postponed in case of weather conditions. It will be clearly stated on the tour/event/experience page what the alternative plan is.

Each situation will be considered accordingly and EdibleSwitzerland will attempt to do the right thing.
Refunds of dining events or special one-off experiences
Due to the nature of dining events or special one-off experiences, no refunds or credits will be given if the Participant is unable to attend. However, tickets can be transferred to someone else. Please contact us with the new guest’s information at least 24 hours prior to the event, or tell the guests using your reservation to give your name at arrival.
Our Foodies Facebook group is a good place to post tickets if you cannot attend an event. People often go there looking to buy or sell last minute seats. It is important to note that transferring funds for your tickets is your responsibility.
In the case of an event being postponed due to circumstances beyond our control, EdibleSwitzerland will reschedule said event and all purchases will be honoured for the rescheduled future event date. No monetary refunds will be issued. If a guest is unable to attend the rescheduled event, EdibleSwitzerland will issue a credit for the original purchase amount, for the guest to use toward another event of their choice.
No refunds or accommodations will be provided as a result of improper attire worn by the Participant. Events take place on all sorts of natural terrain and in the fields of working farms and vineyards, so please wear proper attire and appropriate shoes. Please dress accordingly and remember to wear appropriate shoes. We recommend a jacket and/or blanket as it often gets cool in the evening.
Tours can be modified based on the capabilities and desires of the participants.
Additional wine tastings depend on the availability of winemakers.
You must be able to walk a minimum 5 km over the course of the day.

The remaining sum can be paid until the departure. ( I will send two separate invoices. )
