Does the price of the tour include entry fees?
No, entry fees are not included in the price of the tour. Please be prepared to pay all entry fees on site in cash.
What are the transportation costs for my tour?
None of our walking group tours have transportation costs. For private tours, if you wish for a private car or van to transport from one place to another, you will be subject to the cost of the car and driver.
Do we skip long lines or buy tickets in advance?
Our tours begin at off-peak times and we make reservations in advance for our peak time tours. For the Vatican, we try and go at the least busy time and we make reservations in advance.
What is the dress code of the Vatican?
Knees and shoulders should be covered. Women are not allowed to wear tank tops, short skirts, or shorts. Men cannot wear hats into St. Peters Basilica or the Sistine Chapel.
Do you accept credit cards? How can we pay?
You can pay in advance using a credit card, with PAYPAL, or in cash on the day of the tour.
Does my guide speak English?
Yes, your guides will speak very good English.
Will you wait for us if we are late for a tour?
We will wait for you if you call us prior to the start of the tour. For private tours, we wait up to 30 minutes but for group tours, we have to be fair to the other group members and can only wait five minutes past the start of the tour.
Where do we meet for a group and private tours?
Group Tours: you will receive instructions and maps for meeting points upon booking. Private Tours: you will receive instructions via email (guides can meet you at a planned location or at your hotel)
What should I bring with me on my tour?
It is a good idea to bring a water bottle, especially in the summer because Rome can get very hot. Food is not allowed inside museums. You can bring smaller bags to the Vatican but larger bags must be checked. Most sites do not allow tripods for taking photographs.
What are the minimum and maximum number of people for group and private tours?
Group tours: minimum of 2 people and a maximum of 15 people. For private tours we can accommodate any size group with advanced planning.
Are strollers or wheelchairs available for tours?
We can easily reserve a wheelchair or stroller for our tours if you inform us in advance.
