We take your credit card information at the time of the reservation to uphold the cancellation policy. We run at capacity most of the season and turn away others to hold the space for you. We reserve the space for you and you in turn agree to pay for the trip. There will be no charge if we are advised of the cancellation at least eight days prior to the trip, as we are generally able to resell your space to others.u003c/pu003enu003cpu003eWithin 7 days of the trip: We will make our best effort to resell your space to others, however, if we’re unable to do so, you will be charged as though you are on the trip. This includes canceling for last minute medical emergencies.u003c/pu003enu003cpu003eIf you do not show up on the day of your trip: Because we turn away others to hold the space for you, and drivers/guides are prearranged based on your being on the trip, these costs cannot be recouped and therefore, you will be charged as though you are on the trip. Thank you for understanding.u003c/pu003enu003cpu003ePlease Note: If roads are closed due to weather conditions or other closures, we reserve the right to substitute an alternate route.u003c/pu003enu003c/divu003enu003c/divu003e
Leave the city and beaches behind as you climb the rugged terrain of San Diego’s mountain ranges or wind through the trails of Cleveland National Forest.
We will navigate high, steep climbs and heart-pounding descents, while taking in some of the most beautiful country around, all with the feeling of confidence and safety.
