In the unlikely event that the customer(s) has/have cause for complaint about Devi Adventure, the complaint should be made in the first instance to the guide so that corrective action can, if possible, be taken. The customer(s) acknowledges that it is unreasonable to take no action during a ride/walk/week/holiday with Devi Adventure but to complain later. However, should a problem not be resolved the complaint should be made in writing.
