  COVID RESTRICTIONS AND DATE CHANGES. 

As a result of the current pandemic conditions and the changing restrictions here in Greece, we ask that students remain flexible to the changing conditions and understand that we are not responsible for the changing conditions and climate we currently operate.

We will always look to re-book classes, although we cannot guarantee similar dates, we will always try and get dates close to the original booking. Failing that we will always offer a negotiated refund pursuant to our cancellation policy.
