The Emory Travel Program acts as a facilitator with tour operators, with whom tour participants make arrangements for travel. The Emory Travel Program is pleased to act as a liaison with tour operators should you have any questions or concerns that may arise before, during, or after your tour. The Emory Travel Program strongly encourages you to familiarize yourself thoroughly with the tour operator's cancellation and refund policies, and also highly recommends the purchase of comprehensive travel insurance. The university is not responsible for changes to trips or travel arrangements or for losses or additional expenses resulting from travel.
