THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE BOOKING:
We reply to every request we receive. In case you don't get an answer within 24 hours, please do contact us again: sometimes e mails just don’t go through!
We highly recommend to book your tour at least one week prior your arrival. In this way, we can guarantee our availability. To confirm your booking, you’ll be required to provide a valid credit card number. Nothing will be charged in advance, as we need your credit card details to hold your reservation only.
Kindly consider that a tour is booked only when a confirmation voucher has been issued.
An email exchange is not a reservation, nor it means we have a tour on hold for you.
Payment will be settled at the end of each tour, directly with your driver or guide.
We accept Mastercard and Visa only.
You can pay for your tours both in cash and by credit card.
Please, note we apply a 10% fee on credit card payments. which is due to bank commissions on international transactions.
We acceps payments in U.S. Dollars too, and in this case, we will apply the exchange rate of the day of your tour as it is stated on the official website of Yahoo Finance, plus a 10% change commission.
All our prices are intended per party, not per person.
Nothing will be charged if you cancel your reservation at least 7 days before the required tour.
If these terms are not adhered to, When In Italy reserves the right to debit a "no show fee" on your credit card, which is equal to the total amount of the tour(s) previously booked.
When visiting churches, and in particular at the Vatican, the dress code requires shoulders and knees to be covered. This applies to both men and women.
No need to be formally dressed: you can wear anything wish to wear (jeans and sneakers are totally fine!) as long as your shoulders and knees are covered.
In Italy, tipping is not mandatory, so please don’t feel like you must leave a tip!
If you have received a good service, a 10% is considered a fair amount, but – again – not mandatory! Anything you’ll decide to leave, will be absolutely well accepted.
To avoid long lines and maximize the time at your disposal with your gude or driver, we highly recommend you to buy your admissions in advance, in particular when visiting very popular sites, such as the Vatican and the Coliseum.
Admissions are available online, and we’ll be happy to assist you with the booking procedure, if needed.
Verbal agreements are not taken in consideration. A tour is booked only once we issue a formal contract.
When in Italy is not responsible for strikes or unexpected closures.
If a tour must be moved or cancelled for such reasons, nothing will be charged.
Should this occur, we’ll of course do our best to re-arrange the tour to the next available date.
OUR STAFF & FLEET:
All our vehicles are covered by an insurance policy taken out with the major insurance companies, and our drivers are all professionals and holders of an authorized license.
In Italy, by law, drivers are NOT authorized to accompany you while you are actually visiting INSIDE museums, monuments or Churches: your driver will be waiting for you outside with the vehicle.
For "in depth tours", with more detailed information over art & history, we offer a team of very knowledgeable and carefully selected LICENSED TOUR GUIDES. In this case, you’ll have your tour guide walking with you inside each attraction you’ll visit during the tour.
