TERMS AND CONDITIONS
The essential premise of our tours is that we want to host you like you would host your friends at home: with grace and generous hospitality, attentive to the needs of the guests.
When you invite your friends over, you don’t consider your public liability insurance, you don’t have an ambulance on standby just in case one of your guests has a heart attack, you don’t notify the police. You have the best interests of your guests at heart, and that is the spirit that governs the evening.
The same applies to the Coffeebeans Routes tours. However, there are precautions that we must take to protect our guests and the company.
Please take careful note of the terms and conditions below.

Please note that we are unable to reschedule the full tour on another day due to our other tour commitments.
4.5 Robben Island and Table Mountain cancellations for group bookings
Where the full day Robben Island Table Mountain tour has been programmed as part of a group programme, and the weather dictates that the Island and the Mountain are inaccessible, then:
4.5.1 we would seek to swap days around and programme this day later in the programme, subject to availability of Robben Island tickets on another day.
4.5.2 If a swap isn’t possible, we programme a different activity for the day.
Refunds for the Robben Island Table Mountain tour are not possible for group bookings.
