The tour itinerary shown above is conducted by an English speaking driver who has been trained to give a tour along the route. They will share their knowledge and passion for the area, stop for the best photo opportunities and point out the places of interest. Your driver is not allowed by Italian law to guide you around the historical areas, monuments and towns where you stop.

The tour itinerary for shore excursions is based on cruise ships arriving in at, or before 08:30 and sailing at, or after 6:30pm.

For ships that sail before 6:30pm please email us first so we can work out the changes to the itinerary to fit your ships schedule before setting up the tour. We will then add the changes to the notes section for fellow cruisers to read before they join the group.

We always base the tour itinerary around the ships schedule with number one priority to get you back to the port 1.5 / 2 hours before sail time.

Cancellation Policy:
The tour is confirmed the moment you either create or join a group. Any tour cancelled within ten days of the service date will be considered a late cancellation. APTours reserves the right to debit a 'late cancellation fee' in this event. The 'late cancellation fee' will equal the total amount of previously confirmed services. If cancellation is requested by e-mail no less than ten days before the booked date there will be no charge. Once you have filled out a reservation form and inserted payment information you agree to enter a legally binding contract with APTours.

Important Info:
Once you have signed up for a tour or created a tour, your name, mobile number, email address will be shared with others in your group. As a new member joins your group you will receive an update of group size and cost. As the tour is shared we must fix an itinerary and keep to a set time schedule. We ask guests to be punctual to all meeting points set by the driver to help the day run smoothly.
