Insider's Secrets

Whether this is your first time to Italy or if you are a seasoned traveller, here are some tips and tricks to keep in mind during your visit.

If you are pleased with the service you received from your Driver, a minimum of 10-15% gratuity is customary in Italy.

The listed price listed for the tour is per vehicle, not per person. Our guests may split the cost of the tour.

Tour price includes a professional English-speaking guide driver with a private deluxe vehicle, Italy’s VAT tax, fuel cost, insurance, applicable toll and parking fees. It does not include entrance fees to any sites, lunch, wine tasting, gratuities, or other client personal expenses.

Our tours include a professional guide driver but he cannot accompany you into the sites and monuments. If you prefer a more in-depth tour, we can provide a licensed English-speaking tour guide upon request for €50/hour

Always dress respectfully when visiting religious monuments; local custom requires covering knees and shoulders.

Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.

Walking is very limited unlike bus tour where you have to walk most of the day following your guide.
