Rregarding services requested from Cruise ship or flights

BAD WEATHER-PORT CHANGES-FLIGHT PROBLEMS
For cruise ship passengers: if your ship does not dock due to bad weather you will not be charged (you
will refunded in full if you’ve paid in advance). In the event you will be docking at an alternative port
where the service can be carried out within reason, we will be in touch to get your approval for any
necessary modifications to the itinerary and any additional costs. If you get wind of a port change please
contact us at your earliest opportunity.
 
For those arriving by plane:
The rate includes a wait-time of one hour after your flight has landed. After this allowance a supplement
of 50 Euro per hour applies. If you are rerouted you must inform us of your new arrival time and it must
be on the same day, otherwise the no-show penalty of 100% will apply. If you have a excursion scheduled
immediately after an airport pickup and your arrival is seriously delayed we will carry out the excursion
as well as is reasonably possible in the time remaining. No discounts will apply if the service must be
shortened. If you arrive on a day different than scheduled, even if it is due to cancelled flights or missed
connections through no fault of yours, the cancellation penalty of 100% will still apply. For this reason
we strongly encourage clients to not book excursions on the day of arrival by air.
Inclement weather is not grounds to cancel a service at the last minute. If you choose to cancel a service
because of bad weather our cancellation policy will be applied.
 
CHANGES TO YOUR BOOKING
You must notify us in writing of any changes you’d like to make to your booking. You will receive a
revised confirmation if we’re able to accommodate the change. If you don’t receive a revised
confirmation it is your responsibility to follow up with us. Note that in high season it may be problematic
to get certain pre-booked tickets, guides or appointments at wineries; we cannot be held responsible for
any lack of availability.
Regarding changes to the number of passengers with less than 48-hours’ lead time:
If you are reducing the number of passengers, you are obligated to pay for the number of passengers on
your confirmation. This applies to any pre-booked items such as tickets or wineries as well. For example,
if you are confirmed for 8 pax and only 6 show on the day of service you will be required to pay for 8.
If you are increasing the number of passengers, the applicable rate will apply. Not all vans hold 8
passengers so we should be apprised in advance of any increases in the number of pax as we may need to
reassign vehicles.
 
CREDIT CARD GUARANTEE
When you make a booking no deposit is required. YOUR CREDIT CARD IS TAKEN ONLY AS A
GUARANTEE. We will not take payment with it unless you specifically request us to do so.
DURATION OF SERVICE/ADDITIONAL TIME CHARGES
Excursions start at the time indicated and last for the duration specified. Additional time will be billed at
60 Euro per hour per vehicle (for sedans and vans that hold up to 8 pax; different rates apply to larger
vehicles). If you are on a cruise ship and unable to disembark at the time indicated due to late arrival of
the ship, we will compensate for time lost, within reason. For transfers the rate is flat and the duration is
approximate; additional time would apply for any stops made at your request

guides because they can be sharing information with you as you travel or are stopped in the vehicle. They
 
will give you an orientation before you leave the vehicle for planned stops, then coordinate with you to
give you enough time to visit each area.
In Italy: PLEASE NOTE that driver-guides are by law NOT PERMITTED TO ENTER TOURIST SITES
with you NOR ACCOMPANY YOU once you exit the vehicle. Local licensed guides (who would
accompany you when you leave the vehicle and who are authorized to enter churches, museums and other
tourist sites with you) are available for additional cost.
For transfers: We do not guarantee fluent English speaking driver-guides for transfers. We guarantee a
properly licensed driver with basic English skills, sufficient to interact with you about the necessities and
get you to your destination as planned.
