Terms And Conditions


These terms and conditions apply to all workshops, tours and lodgings booked through O-Eleonas LLC. Our obligations to you are limited by these terms and conditions and you must read them before booking.  Nevertheless, we are committed to ensuring your enjoyment and satisfaction and we look forward to successful experiences together. 

Nonrefundable Bookings.  Due to limited class size and the difficulty in re-booking classes after cancellations, and due to the expenses and other risks we incur making reservations for workshop participants and their partners, bookings for all workshops are nonrefundable.  They are, however, transferable to someone else.  We may have a waiting list for your workshop – please contact us. 

Space is limited in our workshops and classes, and reservations are accepted in order of receipt of your registration, which acknowledges that you have read these terms and conditions, and our notification to you of your enrollment.  You are responsible for assuming the responsibility to select a trip most appropriate to your physical abilities and interests. Your registration will be held upon initial payment but not confirmed until we receive your signed Waiver Form. See our website registration page for the Waiver Form.  

Trip Alteration or Cancellation.  O-Eleonas LLC reserves the right to alter the itinerary or accommodations as conditions warrant. If a trip itinerary must be changed due to weather, transportation delays, government intervention, sickness or other contingency beyond O-Eleonas’ control, O-Eleonas will not be responsible for any additional cost to you. 

O-Eleonas LLC reserves the right to cancel a workshop/tour before departure for any reason including too few participants or logistical problems such as strikes, military actions, acts of nature or any other circumstances which may make operation of the trip inadvisable. If we cancel a workshop or tour you have reserved, the entire amount you have paid to O-Eleonas LLC for the applicable tour will be refunded within 30 days, minus any PayPal fees we paid if you were invoiced by O-Eleonas.  Once this occurs, O-Eleonas and its representatives have no other obligations to workshop/tour registrants for cancelled trips, including any additional costs or fees relating to the issuance and/or cancellation of airline tickets or other travel arrangements not made by O-Eleonas LLC. 

Alternatively, you may choose to transfer to another O-Eleonas tour within 12 months of cancelled trip. (See cancellation policy in Terms and Conditions for cancellations by workshop registrant.)

What’s Included and Not Included.  The workshop prices do notinclude airfare but do include local ground transportation while on the tour.  Itineraries are subject to change because there are always surprises and we need to be flexible to manage third party cancellations and opportunities that come along, in order to provide you with an excellent workshop and tour experience. Uncompleted portions of your itinerary are not cause for refund. 

Travel Risks and Limitations of Liability.  Travel involves certain inherent risks, including theft, loss and damage to personal property; weather, strikes and other interruption of travel; and inaccessibility or inadequacy of medical facilities and services.  Many of the services provided in connection with our workshops, including lodging, transportation, food service and local tours and activities, are obtained from independent suppliers over whom O-Eleonas LLC has no control and disclaims any liability. Services provided by independent suppliers or third parties not directly employed by O-Eleonas LLC are subject to the laws of the place where the services are provided. The liability of independent suppliers may be limited by tariffs, conditions of carriage, tickets and vouchers, and international conventions and agreements. 

When booking a workshop, class or other event through O-Eleonas LLC, you agree to indemnify and hold O-Eleonas LLC harmless from any claims arising in connection with the trip made by third parties that arise from your misconduct or that of your family members travelling with you. 

You are responsible for being in sufficiently good health to undertake the trip, for obtaining the appropriate medical and cancellation insurance, for studying all the pre-departure information provided you, and for acting in a manner considerate of fellow travelers, workshop participants, and the countries visited.  O-Eleonas LLC reserves the right to decline accepting or retaining any participant whose health or actions in O-Eleonas LLC’s sole judgment impedes or may impeded a workshop, class or other element of a tour, or which affects the welfare or enjoyment of fellow participants. 

Passport and Travel Visas.  You are responsible for having your passport up to date. Most countries require that your passport be valid for at least six months beyond the conclusion of your trip. Please note that an enhanced driver's license is not a substitution for a passport. 

If there are any visas or entry documents required for your trip, you are responsible for meeting all the health and other requirements necessary for those documents. O-Eleonas LLC is not responsible for providing you with specific visa and passport information or documentation or any fees associated with these documents. 

Please note that it can take up to three months or more to obtain a new passport and/or visa. Tourist visas with a duration of 90 days are generally issued to U.S. Citizens at the port of entry in Europe, without advance notification, but you are responsible for visa compliance based on your own status and travel plans.    

Payments.  An initial deposit of $1,000.00 is due upon registration for a workshop. O-Eleonas LLC accepts payments through its PayPal account (which accepts credit cards) with the address ekora@o-eleonas.com.  We will also accept personal checks made out to Elena Korakiantou.  We will invoice you after registration for the full workshop/tour price according to your payment preference.  If you elect to pay by credit card through PayPal, the PayPal fee will be added to your payment.  Payment arrangements can be made with the approval of Elena Korakianitou ( ekora@o-eleonas.comor 206-618-7352). 

Both the initial deposit made to reserve space in a workshop and later payments to complete a reservation are nonrefundable. 


We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions at our discretion. If an amendment occurs between your booking and your workshop, we will notify you of changes via email.
