06. My group wants to travel within North America on a short tour. Can you help us?
Yes we can help!

07. Is there a specific number of passengers required before we can work with you?
We have created tours for groups as small as 4 and as large as 80. Naturally, the smaller the group, the more money per person, it will cost. Please contact us even if you have 1 person who is coming to North America for a specific event or activity.

08. My group wants to travel outside of North America. Can you help us?
We would be pleased to work with your group and customize a tour for you, anywhere in the world. Let us know how we can help!

09. My group wants just a bit of agriculture in their tour. Do you have a set percentage of agriculture a tour must have?
Your group can have as much or as little agriculture in your tour. It all depends on what YOU want. If you want a highly specialized technical tour, we can do that. If you want a more general leisurely tour with just a bit of agriculture, we can do that too.

10. Is AgriTours a registered tour operator?
AgriTours Canada is a registered tour operator in the province of Ontario. We are registered under TICO, the Tourism Industry Council of Canada.

11. Are AgriTours tours tax deductible?
For Canadians, AgriTours tours may be tax deductible. At the conclusion of the tour we will provide you with a statement that details the percentage of agriculture that was included in your tour. Please work with this document and your accountant to determine what you can deduct for income tax purposes.

If you are from outside of Canada, we can still provide you with the document that details the percentage of agriculture that was included with your tour. Please work with your federal tax laws to determine if your tour qualifies for a tax deduction.

12. What are your general cancellation policies?
Should AgriTours Canada Inc. need to cancel a tour, all monies received will be refunded. Should insufficient registration be the reason for the cancellation, a written cancellation notice will be sent to all agents on or before the date the final payment is due.

Should a passenger need to cancel the tour, please process any refund claims through their pre-purchased or pre-existing travel insurance.
