The Company does not own, operate, or control any of the suppliers of service that provide accommodations, meals, transportation, sightseeing activities, or other goods and services connected with your tour. These suppliers are responsible for their performance. The Company, its owners, employees, shareholders, officers, directors, representatives, volunteers, successors, agents and assignees are not liable for any negligence, willful act or default of any supplier or any third party. A supplier’s goods and services are subject to the supplier’s own terms and conditions and liability waivers, as well as local laws and regulations.

2. Pricing

Unless otherwise stated, the tour price is the grand total for all participants, and is listed in € Euro currency. The price is based on a specified number of participants and specific dates, and should the number of participants or tour dates change, the price per person and total price are subject to change. For example, if a participant cancels who is sharing a double occupancy room, the remaining participant must pay the entire room rate (prices for transport, tours, and other services would also be subject to change). Prices are also based on tariffs, government fees, exchange rates, and supplier rates in effect at the time of payment.
On rare occasions, it may be necessary for us to impose surcharges should prices increase significantly due to inflation, exchange rates, or other factors.

Amendments made to bookings may be subject to rebooking fees to cover the cost of tickets purchased, transport, guide rescheduling and administration. Changes to an itinerary may result in additional charges depending on the type, timing, and scope of the change. We pride ourselves on providing thoughtful and personalized customer service, and if you request changes to your itinerary after booking, we will do our best (though cannot always guarantee we will be able) to meet such requests. All amendment requests are subject to availability. When changes are possible, an administration fee of €150 per change may apply and will be payable together with any costs incurred as a result of the requested changes. Substantial change requests by you, such as for example a change of tour dates, will result in recalculation of your tour price. All change requests must be made in writing.

14. Travel Documents & Passports

It is client responsibility to obtain valid and effective documentation, including passports, visas, permits, and vaccinations, where necessary. You also assume complete and full responsibility for checking and verifying any and all passport, visa, vaccination, or other entry requirements of each destination and all safety or security conditions at such destinations. You are solely responsible for any adverse consequences resulting from missing or defective documentation. All travelers, regardless of the holder’s passport, must check with the consulates of the countries being visited to determine if a visa is required for their nationality. Please check requirements carefully, as most countries require passports to have at least 6 months remaining validity from the date of return, and at least two blank pages. Failure to obtain the required documents is your responsibility and no refunds will be made on any services purchased from or through The Company.  We may provide information or advice on visas, vaccinations, climate, clothing, baggage, special equipment, etc. in good faith as a courtesy to you. We are not responsible for any errors or omissions as to the information provided. For information concerning possible dangers at an international destination, contact the government office in your country that is responsible for issuing travel advisories.

15. Health Requirements and Dietary Restrictions

Clients should check with consulates for the latest health requirements. Participants are required to advise The Company at the time of booking of any physical, medical, dietary restrictions and food allergies, or other special needs that are required during the participants’ travel. The Company may at its sole discretion decline booking of any participant or remove any participant who cannot meet minimum health requirements. Participants must bring their own medications or other recommended prescribed drugs, and check with consulates regarding restrictions on drugs or medications if applicable. We will make reasonable efforts to convey any dietary restrictions to your tour guides and certain service providers. However, given the nature of our tours and the fact that we do not operate or manage our suppliers, we cannot guarantee that any dietary needs or restrictions can be accommodated. As such, it is your sole responsibility to ask any necessary questions and to make informed decisions about your dietary needs and restrictions while traveling.
Suppliers reserve the right to conduct health screenings (e.g., temperature checks, questionnaires, checks for observable signs and symptoms, etc.) and refuse travel to participants deemed symptomatic or likely symptomatic. If necessary, suppliers and/or government or health authorities also reserve the right to quarantine travelers with symptoms of infectious diseases aboard confined modes of transport such as ships, trains, etc.

16. Travel Insurance

The tour price does not include travel insurance. We strongly recommend that all participants purchase comprehensive travel insurance, and consider the purchase of “cancel for any reason” coverage. Included in the policy should be coverage for all air travel, trip cancellation/interruption, baggage, accident/life, medical expenses, air ambulance, loss of effects, and all other expenses which might arise as a result of loss, damage, injury, delay, or inconvenience occurring to you. You agree to assume all costs of medical care and transportation that is provided to you, and any minors traveling with you, during the tour. Please note that most companies offering travel insurance require the policy to be purchased within fourteen (14) days of the initial trip deposit or payment (whether handled through us or through another service provider such as an airline) in order to cover pre-existing conditions or to provide for “cancel for any reason” coverage.
You understand and agree that, should you not purchase travel insurance, you will not be protecting your tour whatsoever through insurance and you will be fully responsible for any costs, losses, or damages incurred in connection with your tour, including those relating to tour cancellation or interruption, loss or theft of personal property, medical expenses, and more.

17. Cancellation and Changes by The Company

We reserve the right to cancel or change any tour if the safety or quality of the tour is judged to be compromised. You acknowledge that the accommodations, experiences, transportation, route, schedule, and other aspects of the itinerary may change without prior notice due to local circumstances or events, which may include flight cancellations, illness, political disputes, weather issues, border regulations, or other unforeseeable factors.
If, prior to your tour, a significant change is deemed to be necessary, we will promptly notify you of the best available alternatives. We will do our utmost to avoid the need for additional charges, but some changes may require a supplemental payment from you. We will advise you in the event such a payment is required, and always make an effort to provide more economical alternatives when viable.
If we cancel your tour, as opposed to postponing or rescheduling it, we will endeavor to reimburse you for any payments that you have made less 1) any and all non-refundable deposits and cancellation fees that have been paid to suppliers and other third parties to provide components of your tour (in many cases it is not possible to obtain refunds from suppliers once we have forwarded deposits for your tour to them), and 2) the itinerary design fee or itinerary planning fee you have paid.
If we postpone or reschedule your tour (as opposed to cancelling it) for any reason other than Force Majeure, we will endeavor to provide you with a future travel credit equal to the monies already paid to us, less any and all fees imposed by suppliers and other third parties providing components of your tour. Note that if we change, postpone, or reschedule your tour, such action does not constitute a cancellation of your tour by us.
The Company shall not be deemed to be in breach of these terms and conditions or otherwise be liable to you, by reason of delay in performance, or by non-performance, of any of its obligations hereunder as a result of any actions that it takes or does not take under this section and under this Agreement. The Company will not be responsible or liable for payments, policies, or penalties for other services not included in the tour arrangements, such as airline tickets, separate hotel reservations, or other items (such as other tours or cruises) handled by participants not through us.

18. Force Majeure

The Company will not be deemed in breach of this agreement or otherwise liable to you, by reason of delay in performance or non-performance of any of its obligations under this agreement to the extent that any such delay or non-performance is due to any Force Majeure. “Force Majeure” means any circumstances beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation acts of God, terrorist activities, insurrection, explosion, flood, tempest, forceful wind, typhoon, fire or accident, war or threat of war declared or undeclared, sabotage, civil disturbance, labor strikes, requisition, sickness, quarantine, pandemic, epidemic, diseases and viruses that are known, unknown or novel such as Covid-19 (including any spread thereof), foodborne, airborne, and communicable illnesses and disease, government intervention of any kind that affect domestic and/or international travel, government restrictions or warnings, diplomatic or health organization (e.g., World Health Organization) warnings, border closings, weather conditions, and unforeseen circumstances.
In the uncommon situation where Force Majeure prevents, significantly hinders, or makes it impossible for us or our suppliers to provide the services including but not limited to your tour, we and our suppliers shall be entitled to, in our sole and absolute discretion, take one or more of the following steps: cancel, modify, postpone, or reschedule any tour itinerary or arrangement, including tour dates and the entire tour itself.
You understand and agree that we will not be able to pay you any compensation, costs, or expenses you incur as a result of Force Majeure. We regret that no refunds will be provided if we take any of the preceding actions due to Force Majeure, unless and to the extent we are able to obtain any refunds from our suppliers.
Please note that in many cases it is not possible to obtain refunds from suppliers once we have forwarded deposits for your tour to them. Any refund under this section will be less the itinerary design fee or itinerary planning fee you have paid, and any and all non-refundable deposits and cancellation fees that we have paid to suppliers and other third parties to provide components of your tour. This policy is based on the fact that local suppliers, who are located outside the United States, are not obligated to return non-refundable deposits or waive their cancellation fees in the case of Force Majeure. For reasons of this nature, we strongly recommend you obtain travel insurance (see above section titled “Travel Insurance”). If you choose to cancel your tour if we invoke Force Majeure, our standard cancellation penalties (see above section titled “Cancellation By You” and “Unused Services”) will apply unless we expressly state otherwise. If  The Company is affected by Force Majeure, The Company, if practicable, will notify you of the nature and extent thereof.

19. Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability

All tour and travel services are completely non-refundable and non-transferable for any reason including but not limited to: illness, injury, flight itinerary, employment, threat of actual war or terrorism, client perceived threat of war or terrorism, failure to review your itinerary online, or flight delays. Clients must bear all such losses or expenses. This is not limited to, but may include:

19. 1 Reduced and/or cancelled itineraries

The Company is NOT liable for reduced and/or cancelled itineraries due to circumstances beyond our control such as technical or administrative problems with transport, closure of airports, flight delays, ships unable to dock for whatever reason, sports events that make circulation by certain streets or areas impossible, adverse weather conditions, or any other occurrences beyond our immediate control and which, despite all due care being taken could not have been avoided. Therefore, no compensation can be offered. The Company is NOT liable for reduced itineraries owing to unscheduled closures by attractions.

19.2 Site, Museum and/or Area Closures

The Company has done all adequate research and planning to be sure its clients are able to do all of the tours scheduled, but we cannot be held responsible for the inability of our tour to access certain monuments/areas and/or venues due to restrictions caused by excessive traffic, inclement weather, manifestations and protests or due to that area being restored/under construction or covered/obstructed from public view. We cannot be held responsible for strikes within Italy. If there is a museum or archeological site closure due to strike, The Company cannot take responsibility as there is no way to know in advance. We will try our best to reschedule any affected tours, but successful rescheduling to meet client needs cannot be guaranteed. Most museums in Italy reserve the right to close at an instance notice for any reason they deem necessary. While we regret these inconveniences, The Company cannot be held responsible for choices made by archeological site, museums or church management therefore, no refunds will be issued. In these rare cases, The Company reserves the right to substitute visits, entertainment and other features when establishments are closed or cannot be visited for reasons beyond our control.

We will not accept any liability for claims received after this period. This procedure would give us the opportunity to address your concerns and take the necessary steps to find a fair, reasonable and mutually acceptable solution before you publish any of your comments on the Internet including but not limited to public forums, review sites, blogs and/or social media. Any negative post published without being first brought to the attention of The Company will be considered a breach of this agreement.
