Client Testimonials

Thanks for making such a great trip. Snowed in quiz nights, 2m powder, 7am stumbles home, luscious steaks, Tango lesson in BA - it definitely goes down as one of the best, if not THE best hols"

I have been on a couple of Daves tours and my most recent was the Las Lenas trip, and that would have had to have been the best of the lot. Keep up the good work." Elliott Devase

1. Organisation
Great Outdoor Adventures LLC. (hereafter referred to as GOA LLC.) is a registered business set up and head officed in Boise Idaho 83704. GOA LLC. is permitted to arrange ground based organisation and logistics as a tour company. In that respect it is permitted to accept funds from members of tours, expeditions and treks for depositing into its own account. GOA LLC. is not a registered Travel Agent, and cannot book air fares nor trade in any other generic travel product. In this respect all ticketing matters are handled by our nominated licensed travel agency To Be announced at time of booking, whom are members of the USA Federation of Travel Agents. All payments for air fares and ground service are held in trust compliant with the terms and requirements of the AFTA legislation which provides protection to members of the traveling public.

2. Limitations
Members participating on overseas programs acknowledge fully that these programs contain inherent risks, not limited to but including itinerary changes, strikes, transport delays, and the like. They further accept that these risks are an integral part of adventure travel and agree in full and without limitation to indemnify GOA LLC. against any action arising out of same.

2.1Members of programs also accept the sometimes difficult nature of the programs, and the exposure to members and managers and staff to risks including altitude sickness and bacterial and any other infections. It is fully understood and accepted that in the event any member is forced to discontinue his/her participation on the program, including reasons of personal choice, then no future claim on any unused portion of the program, or any services attached therewith, will be considered. Further, any early departure from any program is at the expense of the member, and no consideration can be given to claim for any such costs from funds paid for and intended for the standard schedule and program.

3. Payments and deposits
Tour programs and or rental units require a deposit payment in full. Tour programs (las lenas only) require payment in full if the account value is under USD$1500, if above this amount a statement will be sent detailing payment requirements.

In addition the member accepts that a surcharge on the cost of the trip, not exceeding 15% of the value of the ground services of the program, may be levied within 8 weeks to departure in the event of any unexpected costs being borne by the company in the organisation and execution of the program. This levy also accounts for currency fluctuations and exchange variations that need to be met by the company in the issuance of funds to overseas destinations.

under Ar 7. Risk and responsibility limitations
High altitude climbing, extreme and remote based wilderness trekking, and alpine touring contain significant inherent risks. GOA LLC. uses all due care and diligence in the provision of services during the tour. Members of the tours use such services and facilities at their own risk. Our programs specifically seek out to provide an elemental level of service and support to the independent styled adventurer, and we endeavor to provide as large a safety net as possible during the program. During the ultra high altitude components of our expeditions/tours the member accepts and fully understands that the level and quality of support and guidance is exponentially reduced the higher the member/team goes. No liability for any accident, loss, damage or death, or expense, is accepted or entertained, unless that liability is brought about by proven negligence and is determined and covered under USA Common Law. Members fully accept and understand the inherent risks associated with high altitude climbing, wilderness and long distance trekking, and adventure and off piste skiing, and accept those risks as a condition of their joining the trip.

8. Trip authority and veto
Signing the booking form signifies your acceptance of the Tour Leader's authority to make decisions affecting the group or individuals. The Tour Leader is authorised by GOA LLC. to make all decisions regarding the operation of the program. This extends to removing or declining the opportunity for any member to climb/ski or trek if the Leader believes that a person or persons health is at risk, if an illegal act is committed, or behavior may become, or has been, detrimental to the safety, enjoyment or well-being of the group. On climbing expeditions, unless prior arrangements have been made with GOA LLC. for members to climb independently, or sufficient evidence has been displayed of a level of experience that will allow independent climbing or a solo summit bid, then the leader retains absolute right of veto over any summit bid. Any covert defiance of this signifies your departure from the program in full and our subsequent release of responsibility over you.

9. Insurance
Insurance cover is required for all expeditions/tours. You are advised to have insurance that covers you for all of the activities to be undertaken, including adequate insurance for mountaineering including cover for search, helicopter rescue and medical repatriation, members understand that any such costs are the sole members responsibility and some or all services may have to be payed in full before recieving services.

Such suppliers including airline carriers and travel agents may have limitation on their liability for which GOA LLC. has not entered into any contract for and for which GOA LLC. cannot be held accountable for. The information and past experiences of GOA LLC. would indicate that these services are of an acceptable and suitable quality however we cannot accept any responsibility whatsoever for any exchanged or substituted products or services or performance.
