Experience start times and late arrivals
You should arrive at the arranged meeting point for your experience 15 minutes prior to departure. If you anticipate you will be delayed for any reason, it is your responsibility to contact us on the number provided in your experience documentation. Your guide is booked for the allocated time and will be able to wait for the length and duration of the tour. The time of your delay will be subtracted from the total time of the tour.
Untold Italy experiences are subject to variable and seasonal pricing, both of which are standard practice within the travel industry. This means our trip prices may vary at any time in accordance with demand, market conditions, and availability.
Custom quotation pricing is valid for a minimum of 7 days and will be indicated on your quote. After this time we reserve the right to adjust pricing based on local conditions, currency fluctuations and other factors. Therefore, if you like the price presented then your best option is to book within 7 days.
Prices are based on currency exchange rates at the time of trip publication. Please note that prices may vary depending on which currency the booking is made in.
Please note that a surcharge may be applied to all purchases made by credit card.
We do not issue refunds for any part of the trip not used, including (but not limited to) meals, activities, or any other services.
Timely payment is key for your experience to go ahead as planned and for our local partners and agents to be able to guarantee activities. We reserve the right to cancel a booking without refund should the final payment deadline not be met.
