Read our Escorted Tour Terms and Conditions.
Fill out and submit the Tour Registration form.
Upon receipt of your registration, we will reserve the appropriate number of seats on the tour for you. Each tour registrant will receive a 14-day grace period. During this time, tour reservations can be cancelled for any reason. Cancellations must be received in written form by email, fax or mail. During this time you will be contacted by Samurai Tours regarding your tour deposit of $500 per person.
Following the 14-day grace period, a non-refundable deposit of $500 per person is required. You will have the option of using our secure online payment form, if you wish. Failure to pay the deposit fee will result in the cancellation of your reservation. After receipt of your deposit, your travel insurance coverage will be purchased, and policy documentation emailed directly to the tour members. (For the Best of Japan tours, a group policy will be purchased about two months prior to the start of the tour. In that case the policy documentation will be sent in your final package.) In addition, you will receive your confirmation packet, which will include a medical questionnaire, waiver, flight arrival and departure form, and tour terms and conditions for you to review, fill out and return. In addition, your confirmation packet will include a ryokan list and tour itinerary.
Final tour payments are due 60 days prior to the departure date. Failure to make the final payment on time may result in you being dropped from the tour.
