The company

The personal company “Embiria” represented by Clément Marquet, has its registered office in Athens (Dimitrakopoulou 40, 17672 Kallithea, Greece) and offers touristic services (“Experiences” or “Experience”) to visitors visiting Greece. By purchasing and participating to any of the offered experience, you (henceforth referred to as “you”, “participant” or “participants”) shall have automatically accepted the terms mentioned herein, confirm that you have fully understood them and have agreed to all of them.

Experiences sold by Embiria

All the information and details of Experiences sold by Embiria are described on the website embiria.eu. Some of Embiria Experiences may require a minimum number of participants in order to take place. Embiria reserves the right to cancel an Experience at any given time, up to 24 hours before the scheduled start and for any reason, including but not limited to, an insufficient number of participants. In the unlikely event that the Experience is cancelled by Embiria for reasons other than Force Majeure you will have the choice of either change the date (upon availability of Embiria) or claim a refund. 

Program Pricing and details

Embiria reserves the right to add, withdraw, substitute and/or vary advertised routes, prices and departure times for any of its Experiences without notice. However, reasonable effort will be made to maintain arrangements as advertised.

All prices provided are on a per person basis unless otherwise mentioned and include local taxes.

Prices do not include tips, personal expenses or travel insurance. If in doubt whether something is included in the price of the Experience, please inquire.  

Requirements to participate in Embiria Experiences

All Participants will be required to disclose, at the time of booking, or in any case prior to the commencement of the Experience, whether the Participant suffers from any medical condition which may prevent the Participant undertaking the Experience, including, but not limited to, epilepsy, dizziness, limb or back injury, angina or other heart condition, food allergy, dietary requirements or restrictions, severe or uncontrolled asthma, visual impairment, depression or recovering from recent surgery. Given the nature of our Experiences, we are not in the position to guarantee that all nutritional requirements will be met; however, we will make every effort to meet your needs. 

• Participants acknowledge and agree that they participate in the Experience at their own risk. 

• We do not include personal insurance with our Experiences. Embiria recommends that customers purchase individually their own travel insurance (or ask their travel agent). Embiria will not be held liable for services provided by 3rd parties. 

• All participants to an Experience must hold a valid ticket, voucher or confirmation letter. Entry may be refused if tickets or vouchers are damaged or defaced in any way or not purchased from an authorised reseller.

Embiria’s right to refuse participation

Embiria reserves the right to refuse any person from participation in an Experience, for whatever reason, in its absolute discretion, whether or not they have previously purchased a ticket. A person will be reimbursed for tickets previously purchased should they be refused permission to participate on grounds other than those set out above.

Accessibility and Safety

It should be noted that local conditions in Greece may differ from those that exist in the rest of Europe or the U.S.A. The state and conditions of some streets may present accessibility difficulties. Access for persons with special needs is not guaranteed. Public areas may not be accessible to persons with special needs.

Participation in our Experiences may require a minimum physical condition, such that you are in the position to walk uphill or climb stairs. Kindly inform us if you have a medical or physical limitation or are undergoing a medical treatment.

Embiria will not be liable for the personal safety of participants, or for the safety of personal items, nor for unforeseen events and incidents that Embiria cannot control, prevent or avoid, including (but not limited to) accidents, thefts and illnesses during the Experience. Each participant shall be fully responsible for his/her personal health, medical needs and safety.

We advise you to check your insurance contract in order to determine whether you are covered and to clarify what your travel insurance covers in the case of trips abroad. For their own safety, all Participants must obey the directions and instructions of the Experience leader, must not disturb other Participants or interfere with the Experience leader’s ability to conduct the Experience in a safe manner.

By joining an Embiria Experience, each Participant is ensuring its own safety by agreeing to:

1. Stay alert and aware of what’s going on around them at all times and avoid any immediate dangers which they believe pose a risk to them. 

2. Protect themselves from the Greek sun by using appropriate forms of sun protection, including but not limited to a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen during the summer months. 

3. Be adequately hydrated and nourished before, during and after the experience, in accordance with their specific needs and requirements. 

4. Not be under the influence of alcohol, drugs or any other substance that may hinder their ability to observe these Guidelines. 

5. At all times to promptly comply with any directions issued by experience leaders. Athens is a busy, modern city that can be inherently unpredictable. Embiria responds to that risk by relying on the cooperation of all of its Participants. 

Photographs taken during the Experiences

1. All Participants acknowledge and agree that Embiria is expressly authorised to take photographs of them during the Experiences and utilize such photographs for the purpose of advertising Embiria including but not limited to being displayed on Embiria website.

Accepted means of payment are online with credit card, e-wallets or other local payments supported by Stripe, Embiria’s payment provider. 

1. Upon successful completion of payment, customers will receive confirmation and voucher via email. This document must be saved as proof of purchase and be presented on the day of the Experience. Embiria reserves the right to refuse service to any customer without a voucher or letter of confirmation.

Any information which we give to you shall be deemed as given to each and every party member for whom you are making or have made a booking. 

Punctuality

Participants should adhere to the starting time and meeting point of the Experience as indicated on their voucher. If a Participant is late, Embiria will consider this as a no-show, his participation to the Experience will be cancelled and no refund will be provided. It is recommended that Participants arrive at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the Experience.

Cancellation and refunds policy

Embiria allows for the eventuality that a Participant may need to change or cancel an agreed service. Changing the date of an Experience will incur no penalty, providing notification is received in written at least 72 hours prior to the scheduled Experience and providing other dates are available and minimum number of participants is met in order for the Experience to take place. Otherwise, the following cancellation policy applies:

In such event, Participants will either be re-booked at the earliest possible time at the Participants’ convenience (taking into account Experience’s availability), or be issued with a refund voucher in the case of purchases bought through an agent, or be reimbursed the price paid for the ticket. The relevant party who has sold the ticket to the Participant will make all reimbursements. In any case, Embiria shall not be held liable for any expenses, costs or fees, including but not limited to, airline ticket costs or other personal expenses incurred by customers.
