Passport and Visa Requirement
It is your responsibility to ensure that you have a valid passport and where necessary a visa. Your passport should be valid for at least six months after the duration of your tour. We accept no responsibility for your failure to comply with these regulations.
It is our policy that all clients must take out comprehensive travel insurance before commencement of a tour. This insurance should at least cover accident, medical, repatriation, and loss of effects. It is also most advisable that cover begins from the booking of the tour so as to cover any cancellation charges due to illness etc. prior to the tour commencing.
Health and Vaccinations
Because of the constantly changing recommendations as to immunization requirements, malaria risk or health certificates, it will be your sole responsibility to seek the most up to date information from your G.P or health centre. All costs arising out of failure to comply must be met at your own expense. Vietnam Pitta Tours will always carry a first aid / medical kit appropriate to the area being visited. It cannot be emphasized enough that if you do have a health problem or physical limitation, we need to know about it so we can be prepared in the case of an emergency.

Circumstances can change i.e. weather conditions, transport, political situations and even bird migration. Because of this, Vietnam Pitta Tours and local ground agents reserve the right to change any particular itinerary. If an itinerary has to be changed by the leader while you are on the holiday then you must respect their professional decision.
Birdwatching is best enjoyed in a small group, and we aim to offer the best leader per group ratio around. This allows for more personal attention and better opportunities for all group members to see and enjoy the birdlife. To optimize your enjoyment and to enjoy more bird species we have restricted clients to a maximum of 6 to 15 per tour.
