On one hand, LUIS MANZANO PÉREZ DE SANTANA, (hereafter MadridVisits), in the capacity of tourist intermediary with licence I-0003431.2, with tax identification number 42861629W and with registered office at Avenida Mesa y López, 15 – 7º B | 35006 Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Las Palmas) – SPAIN, telephone number: +34 928 493 216 and email address info@MadridVisits.com
And on the other hand, the individual, hereafter referred to as the user, who accesses the page to inform themselves and contract the services offered via the website.
2. Website use policies
The user declares that he or she is of legal age (over 18 years of age) and has the legal capacity to acquire the services offered via the website in accordance with these General Conditions, which he or she comprehends and understands in its entirety. In the event of contraction by a minor, MadridVisits will not be responsible for the expenses incurred by the minor, parents or guardians.
Use of this website implies an agreement between the user and MadridVisits, by means of which he or she expressly agrees to full and unreserved adherence to each and every one of the General Conditions published by MadridVisits at the moment in which the User accesses this portal, especially those established on the limitation of liability of both MadridVisits and any provider of tourist services or travel. Therefore, the User must carefully read the General Conditions each time he or she uses the website, given that the Conditions may have been modified since the last time it was accessed by the User.
MadridVisits understands that those who use its website, booking the various activities and excursions, fulfil the necessary legal requirements regarding the ability to enter into these contracts and that, given this, tacitly agree to be subject to the terms and conditions in the following sections.
MadridVisits is not responsible for any damages that may be suffered by the User in using this website, such as viruses or other harmful element, inconvenience or incident of any kind.
This website is solely and exclusively for the personal use of the User. Modification, reproduction, duplication, copying, distribution, sale, resale and other forms of exploitation for commercial or equivalent gains are prohibited.
The User agrees to use the services and contents of www.MadridVisits.com in accordance with the Law and the general and particular terms and conditions of the services offered at any time, and must refrain from using them for:
Introducing software or applications to the network with the intention of causing damage to the computer systems of MadridVisits, its providers or third-party Users of the internal network or of this website.
Performing illegal activities, contrary to good faith, customs, morals or public order.
Performing activities that constitute a violation of the regulation on intellectual and industrial property or any other norm of the applicable legal order.
Making speculative, false or fraudulent applications or contracts.
The User is responsible for providing his or her data correctly during the contracting processes established on the website, and the User must always enter all the identification information correctly and exactly as they appear on the ID or passport.
The User will answer to, in any case, the veracity of the information provided and will be responsible for communicating to MadridVisits any modification thereto, with MadridVisits reserving the right to exclude from the registered services any User who has provided false information, without prejudice to the other actions that proceed in Law.
MadridVisits offers its website and access to it for free, dedicating time and effort in keeping it updated and in proper working order. The limitation of liability of MadridVisits responds to and is based on the applicable legislation.
If for reasons of force majeure it is impossible to execute the purchases or reservations of services contracted through MadridVisits, provided that MadridVisits does not have the capacity to resolve said causes, it will be exempt from any social, legal or economic responsibility that affects such situations.
MadridVisits reserves the right to deny or withdraw access to the website at any time and without prior notice to users who do not comply with these General Conditions or who have misused the services and content published on it.
3. Making reservations
The realization of the user of reservations or purchases of products or services from the providers that the user chooses will also therefore be subject to the specific terms and conditions that such providers establish for each case, and that the user accepts at the end of his or her reservation or purchase.
The user consents to accept and follow the terms and conditions of purchase to be established by each provider with which he or she chooses to contract, including the payment of any accrued amounts and compliance with any rules and restrictions regarding the availability of tarifs, products or services.
All of the reservations made on our website are recorded and therefore archived automatically in our system. Proof of this is the reservation confirmation page, which automatically indicates to the client his or her reservation number, locator and all information. In addition, the system automatically sends the client’s reservation information to his or her email along with his or her locator number and all of the information about the method of payment and confirmation of the trip. It will also always indicate a contact number for resolving any question or concern.
MadridVisits provides a fast online reservation method available 24 hours a day in a secure manner. The reservations will be made via the MadridVisits site and formalized with the company that carries out the activity in question. Given the diversity of the activities, they may require different methods of payment or different days of advance notice in order to make the reservation according to the demand and capacity of said activity or excursion.
The data entered by the User will be truthful and of his or her ownership, especially those related to the methods of payment.
Exceptionally, in the event that it is not possible to reserve the requested day online, MadridVisits will be available to Clients via info@MadridVisits.com and will be responsible for solving the problem or proposing other alternatives of interest. Likewise, in the event it is not possible to make the reservation online, the client may call the number +34 928 493216, through which the reservation can be attempted to be made by telephone. In the event there are problems when making a reservation, MadridVisits is available to Clients via the methods indicated in the “Contact” section.
Given that MadridVisits acts as an intermediary, each reservation is communicated automatically and in real time to the Company that offers each activity. As there are many activities and many different providers, it will not be possible to contract more than one activity with each reservation, so Clients should make as many reservations as activities or excursions they wish to hire.
After making the reservation, a confirmation will automatically be sent to the email provided. In the event this is not received and once the spam inbox has been checked, you may contact MadridVisits in order to resend confirmation manually. With the exception of theme parks, it is not necessary to print the confirmation. It is enough to show it on any mobile device. In the theme parks, only the first page of the sent PDF needs to be printed. Certain providers may require the printout.
The reservation document includes, in every case, the name of the Company providing the activity that has been contracted as well as its contact information. If the reservation includes transportation, the bus will include either the name of the company or the activity that has been contracted in order to identify it.
In order to avoid a lack of availability or limitations of any kind, it is recommended that the reservation be made as far in advance as possible.
The User will be responsible for any illegal act that differs from the realization of the reserved activity. Should MadridVisits consider the existence of such a possibility, it will be entitled to cancel the reservation in question.
Likewise, the User agrees, when contracting through MadridVisits, that it acts as a mere intermediary in the reservation and hiring of activities and excursions offered by the various companies and does not assume the risk and fortune of the operations. Neither is it responsible for information provided by the different providers.
4. Modifying reservations
There will be no extra cost for the Clients to modify the date of their reservation to a different one through reliable means, provided that it is at least 48 hours before the date of the reservation and there are places available. For said modification, you can contact either the provider of the activity or MadridVisits.
Tourist activity is affected by multiple urban circumstances (i.e., road closures, local events, etc.), logistical circumstances (i.e., highway closures, infrastructures, construction, etc.), climatological circumstances (i.e., rain, snow, state of alert, sea conditions, etc.) and geopolitical circumstances (i.e., manifestations, riots, holidays, etc.) outside our capacity of control. MadridVisits’s providers may slightly modify the contents of the reservations when, due to this type of seen or unforeseen circumstance, the routes, schedules and visits cannot be performed in the same way as depicted in the online offer. In such case, the providers will try to provide the service in the best way possible, substituting services of a similar objective and cost that could not be enjoyed by others.
5. Cancelling reservations
The cancellation of the reservation of the different activities and excursions offered will be subject to the policies and terms of the provider Company that offers them. In general, up to 48 hours before the Client may cancel, the amount paid is fully refunded. However, during the last 48 hours, the cancellation may involve penalties that will be clearly stated in the service offer. In any case, cancelling within the last 24 hours forfeits the right to any refund.
If any activity has a different cancellation policy, this will be reflected in the offer, during the reservation process and in the confirmation or voucher of the reservation.
The provider, however, may cancel the reservation at any time for causes of force majeure and always thinking about the safety of the users, automatically refunding the quantity paid without the User being able to claim any additional amount (i.e., taxi, travel to the pick-up point or to the location of the activity). In these cases, the provider will notify the User as soon as possible via the contact methods indicated on his or her reservation. It is the User’s responsibility to be reachable through these means.
6. Limitation of liability
MadridVisits is not responsible for any inconvenience, accident, damage or problem caused by force majeure or incidentally beyond its control.
MadridVisits offers on its site a great diversity of leisure and sports activities that require the User to have full physical and psychological capabilities. It is the User’s responsibility to inform MadridVisits or its providers of any circumstances related to his or her health that may pose a risk to the User or third parties during the realization of the activity, enabling MadridVisits and its providers to reject the reservation.
In the event the User is not present for the reserved excursion or activity, no refund will be made and the amount paid will be lost. Likewise, Clients are subject to the fulfilment of the pick-up and transportation times of each of the contracted activities.
When choosing the option of “pick-up at the hotel or a place close to it,” the User will have a designated time and meeting point and can consult these at any time on his or her reservation voucher. In the event the pick-up point is not the hotel entrance, MadridVisits or the activity provider will send an additional email indicating the pick-up point with respect to your accommodation. It is the Client’s responsibility to locate the pick-up point and call or contact the provider if he or she has any questions about the indicated pick-up point. The User must always be punctual, and as a general rule it is convenient to arrive about 5 or 10 minutes in advance of the indicated time.
If the User arrives late or is not at the agreed upon point, he or she will have no right to any refund for the amounts previously paid or any expenses occasioned.
If more than 10 minutes pass with respect to the indicated pick-up time and the bus/guide has not arrived, the User can call the telephone number +34 928493216 or the telephone number of the provider that appears on the reservation voucher.
MadridVisits and the provider Company are not responsible for the possibility of delay in the predetermined Schedule or that the route of certain excursions may be altered as a result of the state of the roads, weather conditions or any other circumstances of force majeure outside the capacity of control of MadridVisits or any of its providers.
MadridVisits is not responsible for the loss of luggage or personal effects of the Users during the activities or excursions. Neither will it be responsible for damages suffered by the User nor his or her death on the different excursions when the User has acted recklessly, without due diligence or by disobeying the instructions and guidelines determined by the tour guides in said activity. Likewise, in the case of adventure activities or excursions, whether on land or any means of transport, the User accepts under their own responsibility when contracting these activities any risks that may be incurred when doing them for themselves and any minors whose custody they hold. Therefore, MadridVisits recommends to Users that for the greatest protection and security, they should contract on their own the appropriate insurance policies to prevent and protect themselves from possible incidents, without prejudice to the guarantees offered by the providers.
MadridVisits is exempt of responsibility in relation to the content of the provider’s pages and any inconveniences arising from them.
The service providers are responsible for these to the extent that determines the incident, as well as having the permits, licenses and insurance necessary for the performance of their activities.
The User accepts responsibility for the economic consequences that derive from any use of this Website and that result from the unauthorized third party of the personal and secret password of the User of the website MadridVisits.
MadridVisits makes the greatest efforts to update, maintain and operate its website, offering the User this site as a tool for obtaining products and services. However, MadridVisits cannot guarantee the absence of technical failures, the total security of the Web service, or that the web site is operative 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at all times.
MadridVisits provides through its website different information about products and services offered or provided by third parties. Therefore it assumes no legal responsibility for the lack of authenticity, fidelity, accuracy and/or updating of the reviews contained in the offers of products and/or services offered on the website by the different providers of products and/or services.
In any case, MadridVisits does not assume responsibility for the damages and prejudices that can accidentally be caused, directly or indirectly, from the purchase of a product or provision of a service offered on third-party website, by negligence of the supplier of said product or service or by other cause outside of MadridVisits. Likewise, MadridVisits assumes no responsibility for those third-party products and/or services that, although offered on the website of MadridVisits, are not directly managed by us. The limitation of responsibility of MadridVisits is that provided by the applicable legislation for this purpose, and especially the one related to the sectoral regulation of tourist intermediaries.
If due to force majeure (including the declared, as well as by social, political, economic, strikes or any other type of instability affecting citizen security in general or of the User in particular) there are deficiencies in the reservations, confirmations and/or executions of any services contracted through MadridVisits, and for situations that are not predictable or avoidable by MadridVisits or even if it is impossible to comply with some of the agreed services, MadridVisits and/or the collaborating companies of MadridVisits are exempt from any indemnification obligation, according to the current legal provisions.
Responsibility for the content of the information
The information contained on the website is offered for the convenience of the user. The management and updating of the information on offers, products or services, prices, routes, circuits, characteristics and any other facts and information relevant to the products and services offered through this website corresponds to the respective Providers of products, without MadridVisits being responsible for the maintenance, supervision or updating, nor having the possibility of verifying the accuracy, reliability, precision or completeness of said information.
MadridVisits in fulfilment of its standards of quality and integral attention to the user, develops its best efforts in order to continuously review the information published using its technology and qualified personnel; however, such information is not exempt from containing inaccuracies, mistakes or any kind of material error or arithmetic error generated in an involuntary way. MadridVisits does not guarantee the accuracy or reliability of the information or content of the website, nor can any implication of responsibility or liability be attributed to it that is attributable to the service providers for the erroneous data provided to them for the marketing of the services via the website. In particular, MadridVisits shall be entitled to refuse all liability in the case of typographical or numerical errors with respect to which it would have operated with diligence and immediacy and good faith both for its correction and to inform the User regarding it and to reimburse any amounts anticipated in such case; this exemption from liability will be especially applicable in the event of acquisition of services in which a sales price is detected that is disproportionately misaligned with respect to the reasonable market value of the product and therefore notoriously erroneous for the perception of the average user.
Comments and opinions: The user may publish his or her opinion regarding the contract activity once it is performed. MadridVisits reserves the right to publish and modify it. In any event, MadridVisits is not responsible for the opinions expressed on its website, being the responsibility of the authors of said opinions.
The conditions of general use and hiring of MadridVisits are read and accepted by the user in the English language, declaring full understanding of this one.
Through the website, the user has access to information about the third party leisure activities related to tourism and may make reservations to MadridVisits for these products, paying part or all of it to MadridVisits and paying the rest of the total amount to the corresponding providers when completing the activity.
The prices are determined either by person, by couple and/or by distinctions between children and adults, depending on the offer and the provider. There are special discounts and prices for groups of more than 15 people: groups, schools, stag parties, birthday celebrations, etc.
In the cases where the price is shown in a currency other than the Euro, the current exchange rate indicated by the European Central Bank at the time of the reservation will be applied.
This Company guarantees its Clients the best price in leisure activities. Therefore prices are constantly updated. In this way, MadridVisits offers to its Clients the opportunity to send information about a lower price offered by the same provider and in the same currency if found, and the difference will be refunded, provided that it is within 48 hours of the reservation. The procedure for requesting the return is detailed on the website (“Price Guarantee” section).
The price never includes tips for tour guides.
8. Method of Payment
The payment procedure will depend on the policy of each provider, although, in general, a portion will be paid for the reservation and the rest will be paid in cash at the time of the activity. Both amounts are determined prior to payment.
The amount can be paid via credit card: VISA, MasterCard or American Express, as well as through PayPal. Consult with your bank regarding the surcharge for commissions that will be applied to the transaction. In no case will MadridVisits be liable for any charges made by your bank in connection with the transaction, especially in connection with any charges resulting from currency exchange in payment.
MadridVisits is not responsible for any problems that may occur when the Client makes payment with a card because it is an automatic process.
MadridVisits will also not be responsible for any illegal charges that users may make on cards not owned by them.
9. Delivery of documentation
Once total or partial payment of the reservation has been made, MadridVisits will send the User a reservation voucher to his or her email address.
After the formalization of the reservation, the User should review its content in order to identify possible errors in data entry. In order to make a correction, the User must call +34 928 493 216 or send an email to info@MadridVisits.com, providing the identification details of the reservation.
10. Private excursions
When the User contacts MadridVisits by any means in order to request the hiring of custom or private excursions not corresponding with any offer published on the website and that integrates specificities and requirements of the User, the User will be informed of and must accept in writing the specific conditions of hiring, payment and cancellation that will govern the custom contracted services, case by case.
