If a cancellation reaches us after the cancellation deadline has expired, a cancellation fee to the value of the full agreed price is payable (applicable for guided tours and gastronomic services). The same is applicable in the case of non-attendance at the agreed time of the event. The time of cancellation is defined as the time at which it is received by the central Visitor Services Dept. of the asisi Panometer. The burden of proof lies with the service recipient.
In the case of visitors arriving late for a guided tour which has been booked in advance, the tour guide will wait a maximum of 20 minutes from the time when the tour was scheduled to begin. This is on condition that we are informed of the late arrival by telephone under the number +49(0)341.35 55 34-0 (Panometer Leipzig).
The service recipient has no claim to the guided tour being carried out once the waiting period has elapsed. The service recipient is obliged to bear the full cost of the service. In other cases of late arrival, the tour will be shortened accordingly and finish at the scheduled time.
The confirmation of gastronomic services is binding for the invoice on the day of the visit. A cancellation deadline of 5 calendar days before the time of the agreed service applies. After the deadline has elapsed, a cancellation fee of the full gross value is payable. We accept no liability if the event cannot take place due to acts of God.
