General Policies

Membership in FGCCT allows you to invite and co-share a double occupancy room with one non-member guest. Single rooms for non-members may become available due to cancelations or other circumstances on request only. A non-member (excluding spouse) pays an additional surcharge.

FGCCT strongly recommends that each participant purchase trip cancellation/interruption insurance coverage. Additional medical coverage is vital for tours that visit locations your medical insurance does not cover. Besides comparing the insurance offered by some tour agents, please also check insureyourtrip.com or aardy.com to be sure you are getting the best coverage for you. Please do not automatically assume the tour agent will have the best policy.

When filling out your registration form, please advise us of any food or other severe allergies.

Our tours are designed to be interesting and accommodating to a range of our travelers. The tours attempt to be moderate with respect to physical demands but can be challenging to some in pace, walking speed, terrain and endurance. Touring gardens can be up and down on uneven surfaces. Often, we are on our feet for over an hour without a chance to sit or rest. Our travelers can always sit out an activity during the tour. Please carefully consider your ability to enjoy the tour and feel free to contact me if you want to discuss any concerns you may have.

The FGCCT is making a concerted effort to reduce single use plastics. No plastic water bottles will be provided. Please bring your sturdy reusable water bottle to refill at refill stations, hotels and restaurants along the way. On bus tours, we will have a large water container with a spigot for refills also. Help keep plastics out of our waterways by reducing single plastics in your life!
