In case no contact is made, we can try to contact customers to let them know the tour is canceled.

In case the customer switches hotels or changes the original pick up address, he or she must send us an e-mail with the new address through our contact page or contact us by phone. In case of tour date changes, see the tour date changes policy below.

Cancellation made by Cyan Adventures
Adventures are in nature and that can some days lead to cancellations from our side. In case of doubt, we will go to the starting place of the activity and judge conditions there. If the tour has to be canceled we give full refund from our side.
Please be reminded that the weather in Moalboal is often different from the weather in Cebu City.
The decision made, in terms of changing the itinerary due to unforeseen circumstances, like floods, breakdowns, traffic jams, heavy rain, thunderstorms, it will all be left only to the tour guide in charge.
If a tour has to be canceled right in the middle of it, due to sudden weather changes that can put our customers at risk, we will then take customers back to their hotel.
If customers can reschedule the tour, a 10% fee will be charged, to cover our expenses. In case customers cannot reschedule the tour, we refund 50% of the total price if the cancellation happened in the first half.
If it happened in the second half (point of decision making and cancellation after 1 pm) we do not refund any money.
Cancellation made by customers
Full refund and no penalty for cancellations made 30 days or more before the activity date (except the PayPal transfer fee).
For cancellation 15 days to 29 days, we refund 30% of the full price.
Less than 15 days - no refund.
Please be reminded that customer cancellation because of sickness, missed plane, traffic congestion or other reasons that are not under the control of Cyan are not refundable.
We recommend buying travel insurance (https://www.worldnomads.com/travel-insurance/) if you want to be secured beyond this point.
This policy applies to outdoor adventures only. Rooms or any other items may have different cancellation policy stated. If there is no different cancellation policy stated for these other products then our above cancellation policy applies.
Tours also happen during rain. You get wet anyway during most tours. Guests can not cancel a tour based on their own assumption that the weather represents a risk.
