Our cancellation and amendment policy applies once your reservation has been confirmed by ItalyWithUs. A confirmed reservation means that ItalyWithUs has advised you of the time and place of your tour and you have secured your reservation by providing ItalyWithUs with your credit card details, money transfer or other payment disbursement. The confirmation will confirm the price agreed to by you, the client, and ItalyWithUs in providing the requested service. If for some reason, the price confirmed in the email does not correspond with your understanding, please contact ItalyWithUs immediately.
Cancellation and/or amendment charges may occasionally vary at the discretion of the management. In these cases we will advise you by email and provide an opportunity for you to choose to cancel the planned tour with a full refund.
For exceptions to this policy, see Exclusive & Private Tours below.
