Tuscan Muse negotiates financial terms with Le Casacce and the transportation company for our creative workshops and Tuscany tours a year in advance of actual workshop/tour dates. These terms are based on the exchange rates at the time the arrangements are made. If the exchange rate varies to such an extreme that it creates a financial loss to our efforts, we may find it necessary to announce an increase in price to workshop and tour participants. If this should occur, you will be well informed prior to your departure for any of our workshops or tours in Tuscany. The possibility of this happening is rare and has never been necessary. However, this policy is in place to allow for sudden economic changes over which we have no control.
