REFUNDS & CANCELLATION
Our cancellation policy is quite kind. Since we commit so hard to provide tour & transfers and supply a quality service to all of our clients, we kindly ask to bear in mind this is an hard work that requires time.
Last minute cancellation or no show is something not nice for anyone waiting for you, so if you change plans and don’t wanna tour with us, we gently ask you to tell us minimum 7 days before.
This way you will get a full refund of your deposit, 100% guaranteed.
We don’t accept phone or sms cancellation unless otherwise expressed. The only way you can cancel is to send an email to us and wait for a cancellation email that confirms the process.
We know sometimes things get complicated last minute, so if you change your plan 72 hours before we will do our best to refund you the deposit, but this is not guaranteed. Imagine you booked us 4 days tour, if you will cancel it only 72 hours before, you just left us without 4 days of work all of a sudden, we can’t really reorganize ourselves and it’s quite possible we refused other services, so we will need to charge the deposit to cover our costs.
If you change your mind less than 72 hours before, full price will be charged.
If you pre-paid completely your tour, these conditions apply:
7 days and before: full refund 100% guaranteed.
7 days to 72 hours: 50% refund guaranteed. (based on our assessment could be something more)
72 hours and less (or no show): no refund guaranteed.
Please note these are our main conditions but we are not robots, we know sometimes plans are not easy to manage, so we will always do our best to refund you if you can’t come. We really base our service on real time communications, so we will glad to help you not wasting money.
We don’t want to put salt in the wound so if the ship does not make it to the pier for bad weather, you will not be considered responsible so NO CHARGE will be made.
Same if your flight is cancelled or plane will not depart for any reasons, you will not be considered responsible so NO CHARGE will be made as well, as long as you contact us straight away to notify.
All tours offered on this website are Chauffeured Tours in private vehicles and English speaking Driver who is not a licensed tour guide. The tours offered on this website are NOT walking tours with a licensed tour guide.

Italy has strict laws and regulations in place to protect licensed tour guides, this it makes it unlawful for Tour Drivers to offer commentary about sites outside the vehicle. In order for us to comply with Italy’s laws, Tour Drivers may not tour our guests near or inside monuments, museums, churches or piazzas.
Only licensed Tour Guides may accompany or guide you at the sites you visit.
- For your safety inside the vehicle, drivers provide commentary only when it is deemed safe to do so while driving. When your driver must concentrate during various driving conditions, please refrain from any distracting behavior as your safety during the tour is our top priority.
When it’s not possible to offer commentary while driving, the driver will provide commentary once the vehicle is stopped near the sites you will visit.
- Your tour driver is native Italian, therefore will speak basic English bearing the accent of his or her native language and English will not always be spoken with the perfection or fluency of a native English speaker.
- Drivers are not licensed tour guides, therefore they have very limited and basic knowledge of history, architecture, art, culture and other information pertaining to the places in the tour. If you seek in depth or detailed information during a tour, we recommend hiring a private licensed tour guide.

We have been providing shore excursions and transfers to cruise passengers for a long time. While we make every effort to return you to your ship on time, there could be, in extreme circumstances, incidents completely out of our control which might delay your arrival back at the port. For this reason, we recommend passengers return to the port at the recommended time indicated by your tour driver, and buy travel insurance to provide extra security in the unlikely event of a missed boarding. Your booking with us serves as an acknowledgment that you accept the terms of service and have made the necessary arrangements to minimize disappointments while traveling, and you absolve Thybris of any liability due to circumstances beyond our control including and not limited to traffic difficulties, mechanical malfunctions, and weather conditions.
Pick up time for shore excursion, unless otherwise indicated in your reservation, is 8 AM. Disembarking later than 8 AM will take away time from your sightseeing opportunities. Price of the tour service will not be amended if tour time is shortened due to delay on behalf of the customer.
If you are experiencing delays disembarking your ship for your tour, please contact us immediately so your driver will be informed and will wait for your arrival. Wait time is 1 hour past the scheduled pick up time, after which without information from the customer regarding delays, the driver will be released from duty due to customer no-show.
