Cancellation policy

If you decide to cancel your tours, the following rules apply:

Tours in Porto: If the tour is canceled more than 2 days in advance, we will give you a full refund.
Workshops and tastings: If the tour is canceled more than 3 days in advance, we will give you a full refund.

Rescheduling tours

If changes are requested 10 days before the date of the tour, there will be no extra cost for rescheduling the tour and rescheduling can be done depending on the availability of the tour guide.


Cancellation of tours due to bad weather

Our tours operate in all weather conditions, except in cases of red warning issued by IPMA (Portuguese Institute of Sea and Atmosphere). However, we reserve the right to change an itinerary if weather circumstances so require, in order to provide you with the most comfortable and pleasurable tour possible.

Partial refunds

The situation is more complex if you book a tour for a group and one or more people decide to cancel. Prices for our tours are calculated based on the number of participants, and the greater the number of participants, the lower the price per person. This occurs because the cost is divided by the number of participants, therefore, the smaller the number of participants, the greater the contribution of each one above a certain number. Therefore, if one or more people decide to cancel, two possible scenarios may occur:

If you cancel less than 2 days before the tour date, there will be no refund of the corresponding amount.

If you cancel 2 or more days before the tour date, we will refund the money corresponding to the number of people cancelled. However, the price per person for the remaining participants will likely increase, so it will have to be recalculated and, if applicable, the difference will have to be paid by the person responsible for booking the group tour.


Therefore, each situation will have to be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by Elena OnTheRoad, who can be contacted at
