Cancellation by MARRAKECH GREEN WHEELS
It should be noted that MARRAKECH GREEN WHEELS has no intention of cancelling any of our booked tours. We really want to bring you out and give you a memorable experience.

However, Morocco is subject to adverse weather conditions (especially in the mountains and desert). For the safety and best interests of our clients and guests, we may need to change or cancel the scope of a trip.

If any Force Majeure events arise close to a scheduled tour, we may have to change the route, schedules, itinerary, amenities and mode of transport without prior notice.

During or prior to departure the climate conditions ( heavy rain, wild winds, snow storms, floods, muddy terrain due to rains, etc.) may force MARRAKECH GREEN WHEELS to change or cancel the trip. This decision is the sole decision of your group guide. If your guide changes or cancels a trip, this is what will happen:

1. Your guide will suggest an alternative tour or route to meet your group’s expectations
2. Cancel, either in whole or partially, the tour’s itinerary
3. Postpone the trip to another day and wait for better weather conditions. Postponing a trip is subject to availability on both your part as the client and on ours.

No refunds will be issued if the tour is cancelled due to Force Majeure and the client decides not to participate in an alternative tour.

MARRAKECH GREEEN WHEELS will provide clients with suitable documentation to enable them to claim a refund from their insurance companies

Unused Sevrice
No refunds will be considered for any unused service after commencement of the tour, trek or expeditions regardless of the reason whatsoever.

At all times, clients must fully understand and accept the potential risks and dangers connected with this kind of active travel. We want to have fun, but please be aware of the dangers, risks and your own level of experience.

The client must at all times strictly comply with the laws and customs of Morocco.
