Not in the Guidebooks experiences are either on a ‘check availability’ or ‘book now’ status – this is made clear when looking at each experience.
Check Availability means we need to check with our host that they have the date/s and or time/s requested. This can take up to 48 hours but often is much quicker – confirmation of availability will be sent via email or can be viewed on our agent’s dashboard under ‘my bookings’.
Book Now means this experience is available to book and is confirmed immediately.
All bookings should be submitted via our website (please ensure you are logged in with your agency details). Should you have any questions you can use our online chat facility or call us on 0203 048 3044.
If you wish to go ahead with a booking, either click the ‘check availability’ or ‘book now’ button. Select your dates and if applicable time along with any other information relevant to the chosen experience. A price will be confirmed underneath the calendar and when you proceed through to the cart page where you can enter your customers name/s.
Continue to the summary page where details of what you are requesting/booking will be detailed. If you wish to go ahead simply click the pink button. If the experience is on a ‘book now’ basis, this is confirmed immediately, and you will receive an email to confirm this. If the experience is on a ‘check availability’ basis, we will contact the host immediately to see if available. Once we have had a response back from our host, we will send you an email to confirm if available or contact you via phone/email if the experience is not available and offer alternative dates/options if applicable. Once a request has been submitted, if the host confirms availability, it becomes a confirmed booking, and you will receive a confirmation email.
An experience voucher will follow closer to the experience date (approx. 4 weeks) and will include host details and any relevant joining instructions.

If you wish to change any part of your customers booking after our confirmation invoice has been issued, you must inform us in writing as soon as possible. Whilst we will do our best to assist, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to meet your requested change. Where we can meet a request, all changes will be subject to payment of an administration fee of £25 per person per change, as well as any costs and charges incurred by us and/or incurred or imposed by any of our suppliers in making this change. You should be aware that these costs could increase the closer to the departure date that changes are made.
