Our booking module is merely an invitation to treat. By completing and sending said module you the costumer make an offer, thereby agreeing to the price of the service previously negotiated. The offer will be accepted on our behalf when or if you receive an email containing a confirmation voucher. At this point a binding contract will have been formed and both parties are responsible to perform their duties.

Driver-guide Competencies

When you book a shore excursion, a fluent English speaking driver-guide will be provided.

Driver-guides will be able to provide running commentary of the territory, be knowledgable about museums, churches, and other attractions.

For tranfers we are only able to guarantee a licensed driver with basic English skills. We thus cannot guarantee the same experience as with a fluent English Speaking driver.

We would like to point out that driver-guides are not allowed by Italian law to accompany you or act as a tour guide in any way once you exit the vehicle as a special license is required. If you desire a tour guide, please indicate this request in the “Additional Info or Special Requests” section of the contact module.

Payment & Cancellations

Payment of the service can be done in two ways.

1.  At the end of the service in cash (Euro): you will need to fill out the entire form and we will require your credit card details in order to hold the booking. We assure you we will not charge anything to your card. You will receive a confirmation voucher after the form has been completed.

2.  In advance through PayPal (5% surcharge): you will need to fill out the form, however no credit card details are needed. In this case you will receive a payment request from PayPal via email. Please be sure to use the same email linked to your PayPal account. You will receive a confirmation voucher once the payment has been confirmed.

All cancellations must be communicated by email to nicola.scovenna@gmail.com. The date on which the email is sent and received (not when we read it) will determine the cancellation fees. Regardless of payment method these are our charges / reimbursements:

  • More than 7 days – no charge

  • From 7 days to 48 hours – 50% of the price

  • 48 hours or “no show” – 100% of the price
