Tipping: Center for Living in Resonance takes care of all transportation tipping needs including bus drivers, and many others.

Please make checks payable to Kimchi Moyer Enterprises. A non-refundable $1000 deposit is required to guarantee your reservation. The remaining balance is due 90 days prior to the tour start date. If the final payment is one week late without prior arrangements, a late fee of $200 will be assessed. We reserve the right to drop anyone who does not complete their final payment two weeks after the due date without a refund.

Cost increases: Tour costs are printed well in advance of our actual travel dates. In exceptional circumstances, the cost of your international trip may be subject to increases which we cannot absorb, due to reasons such as currency fluctuations, fuel costs, tariffs, dues, taxes and fees overseas, the costs of services overseas, additions/adjustments to the tour program, or developments beyond our control. We regret this situation and we do everything possible to avoid surcharges, but sometimes it is unavoidable. We reserve the right to adjust prices before the tour as these changes are made known to us. An increase in tour prices shall not be grounds for refund of all or any part of payments made towards a tour, and completing the tour registration form constitutes your acceptance of this provision.

Cancelled trips: Center for Living in Resonance reserves the right to cancel any trip due to inadequate sign-ups that make the trip economically infeasible to operate. While we make every effort to fill each trip to the point of maximum economy for everyone and do all possible to avoid canceling trips with low sign-up; we can adjust the price of our journeys in order to guarantee departure with a smaller number of participants. The price adjustments imposed by a smaller number of participants are kept as low as possible, normally as little as 5%, and not more than 15% increase over the stated price. If trip cancellation becomes necessary, we will transfer you to another trip, offer you future trip credit, or refund your payment in full. The refund of all payments received shall release Center for Living in Resonance from any further liability. Center for Living in Resonance is not responsible for any additional expenses incurred by members in preparing for the trip, such as non-refundable advance purchase airline tickets, visa and passport fees, equipment or medical costs. In circumstances where trip cancellations resulting from the inability for trip to depart as scheduled, such as cancellations due to acts of war and/or terrorism, or nature takes place, Center for Living in Resonance is not liable for restitution.

Cancellation and refunds: All cancellations must be in writing, and are effective based on the date received in our office. Refunds will be granted based on the following schedule:

  • Deposit are non-refundable. Partial refunds may be given prior to 90 days before departure in accordance with the situation.
  • Up to 90 days days prior to departure: Full refund (or credit) minus original $1000 deposit.
