Is this tour private?
This tour is not private but shared with other passengers.
What is the the number of participants on the tour?
The average group size is 20 persons and it will not exceed 35 persons in one single vehicle.
Where do we meet the driver/guide?
Your tour departs from the port's transportation hub, located near the main gate of the port. When you exit your ship's security area, please look for the free shuttle bus and on your arrival at the terminal, please look for our local representative holding a “DriverinRome” sign.
Does the driver go with us inside the monuments?
No, only a licensed guide is authorized to accompany you during the visit of sights. Our driver will drop you off close to the sights but will stay with the vehicle for the duration of your visit.
Does the tour include lunch and admission fees to the sites?
No tickets or lunch are not included in the rate. Please contact our office for pricing and reservations.
Can we enter the museums in Florence?
Being a shared tour and having a limited itinerary, we do not recommend entering the museums, because it means that you will lose a part of the tour with the rest of the group while you’re inside.
Can we climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa?
During this tour, you will be given time in Pisa. If you wish to climb the tower, you may do so by availing of the skip the line tickets here: http://www.opapisa.it/en/tickets/buy/ and follow the instructions. It may not be possible to secure tickets until 45 days before the tour date. Please check with the office the best time slot to take.
Does the tour include a guide?
If less than 9 people are in your group, you will travel in a small vehicle with excellent access to all sights and your tour will be led by an English speaking driver guide. If more than 9 people are on your tour, you will travel in a van or minibus that will include a separate driver and guide. Since buses have limited access to the city, additional walking will be involved.
What is the duration of the tour?
The duration of the tour is 9 hours including pick up and drop off at the transportation hub.
Do we follow a standard itinerary or is the itinerary flexible?
Since this is a shared tour, the suggested itinerary is pretty much standard but if you have any specific requests please contact our office and we will do our best to accommodate them.
Do you guarantee the return to the ship on time?
In almost 30 years of business, we have never missed the ship that is why we have organized all itineraries to guarantee your return on time.
Is gratuity included in the price?
Tips are never included in our quotes. We think that a tip shouldn’t be included in the rate otherwise it would be a tax!!! Once in Italy do not feel as though you have to tip everyone because someone told you to. Tip only if you really liked the service. Tips are generally: 10% not bad 15 % great 20 % best tour in my life. Please report any abuse.
There will be a full charge for bookings canceled with less than 72-hour notice for any service required. In this case, a full charge will be made on your credit card. If you miss your flight or if your airline decides to cancel the flight due to bad weather or if your flight is directed to another airport on arrival, please advise us on time (as soon as you know) or a full charge will be made.
Please give us enough time so we can accept other reservations and allocate them to our chauffeurs. If the ship does not make it to the pier for bad weather, you will not be considered responsible so NO CHARGE will be made to your credit card. A full charge will be made for a no-show-up.
Only pre-purchased skip-the-line tickets (if requested) are not refundable under the circumstance and will be charged to your card.
