This depends upon which transfer or tour you are taking. Full details of the itineraries can be found on each webpage, indicating what time you will be collected and an approximate time of arrival at your destination. Please refer to the webpage for specific information on your service.
My chosen hotel is not on your list of pick up or drop off points, can I take this service?
We collect from the vast majority of Rome city centre hotels and Fiumicino airport hotels. Occasionally we are unable to pick up or drop off at certain hotels because they are not in Rome city centre, Fiumicino airport or not easily accessible by coach. Please email us at [email protected]riends.co.uk and we will advise if we can collect/drop off at your hotel, or direct you to the closest pick up/drop off point.
I would like to join this tour but you do not service the ship I am travelling on. What can I do?
Our transfers from the port are available to passengers on other ships not listed, when dates and arrival times coincide with the ships we do service. You will need to make your own way to the ship we are servicing on that date. Please note on your booking the ship you are arriving on, and we can then advise which ship you will need to make your way to. Please note you will need to arrive at our meeting point by 08:00am to meet your guide/driver. Our tours and transfers depart at 08:30am.
You will need to take a taxi from your ship to our meeting point which should take no longer than 10 minutes.
How far in advance should I book?
Our tour dates go on sale 12-18 months in advance. We always advise booking early to avoid disappointment as availability cannot always be guaranteed if booking is left until closer to the date of travel. We offer a free cancellation policy up to 42 days prior to travel.
Should we tip our driver or guide?
Tips are entirely at the customer’s discretion and in no way expected. Should you feel inclined to tip, your driver or guide would be grateful, but you should not feel obliged. A 10% tip is considered customary.
