The Tourist shall be permitted to participate in the Tour under the terms and conditions set forth below. By availing himself/herself of the privilege of participating in the Tour, Tourist agrees to all terms and conditions set forth herein in this document (the “Agreement”).

1. Tourist Services to be Provided. JFPBC has contracted with the service providers (each service provider and its drivers, agents, and employees are collectively referred to as a “Tour Operator”) who will provide the services and accommodations to Tourist which are described in the itinerary which has been provided to the Tourist (the “Tour Itinerary”, the terms of which are incorporated herein by reference).

2. Independent Contractors. Tour Operators are independent contractors and not employees, partners, or affiliates of JFPBC. JFPBC provides its Tourists access to the Tour Operators and merely handles the coordination of the services for the Tourists as described in the Tour Itinerary. Tourist fully acknowledges that the relationship between the Tour Operator and JFPBC does not create any actual or apparent agency, partnership, franchise, or relationship of employer and employee between the parties. Tourist understands that the Tour Operator does not have the authorization to enter into or commit JFPBC to any agreements.

3. Tourist Acknowledgements. Tourist acknowledges that in exchange for the privileges associated with being permitted to participate in the Tour, Tourist hereby: (a) releases JFPBC from any and all liability, including negligence, for any damages and injuries, including death or property damage that may occur in connection with participating in the Tour; and (b) agrees not to initiate any legal proceedings against JFPBC with respect to any such claims for damages, which Tourist is releasing. Tourist is aware that various risks are involved in participating in the Tour. Such risks include, among other things, the risks associated with air travel, conflict in the region in which the Tour will take place, and riding in motor vehicle on public roads. Despite these and the other risks, Tourist wants to participate in the Tour and is willing to agree to personally bear such risks, assuming full responsibility for any harm or damage that may result.

4. Limitation of Liability. Without limiting any other provisions of this Agreement, in no event will JFPBC be liable for special, incidental, consequential, exemplary or punitive damages, even if JFPBC is advised of their possible existence. In no event will JFPBC be liable for the acts and omissions of any Tour Operator, nor will JFPBC be liable for losses or expenses due to sickness, weather, strikes, hostilities, wars, natural disasters, or other such causes. Tourist fully intends and understands that the limitation of liability provisions of this Agreement shall bind the Tourist’s family, heirs, assigns, or personal representatives. Tourist hereby forever releases, acquits and discharges JFPBC from any and all liabilities, claims, demands, actions and causes of action that such Tourist may have by reason of any monetary damage or personal injury sustained as a result any service provided for herein. Tourist’s baggage and personal effects are the sole responsibility of the Tourist.

5.Changes in the Tour Itinerary. Tour Operator reserves the right to make changes in the Tour Itinerary (without advance notice) whenever, in its sole discretion, conditions warrant, or if it is deemed changes are necessary for the comfort and convenience of the Tourists. The Tour Operator reserves the right to withdraw (without advance notice) without penalty from any Tour. Dates, schedules, program details and costs have been given in good faith, based on information available as of publication of the Tour Itinerary.
