Bad weather

The weather in the Netherlands can be unpredictable, especially in Autumn and Winter.

But it seldom rains the for whole day. If the rain is torrential the workshop will be cancelled, but if it is not heavy the tour will go on regardless.

Photographers are hardy folks, and stormy skies and wet pavements present some of the most exciting photo opportunities!

Cancellation policy

But whatever the weather, you may cancel up to 1 day before for a full refund.

And if you are not satisfied with the tour for any reason we will also refund your money in full.
