Terms & Conditions
Please read this information carefully, as payment of a deposit represents your acceptance of the followings.
Welcome to the SAVOUR ITALY TOURS website (henceforth referred to as the “Website”). This Website is provided to assist customers in researching their perfect small group tour and/or creating custom itineraries. The terms “we”, “us”, “our”, and “SAVOUR ITALY TOURS” refer to SAVOUR ITALY TOURS™, an Ontario corporation. The term “you”, “customer”, “traveler” and “client” refers to anyone booking a tour package with us.
All prices displayed on the Website are in US Dollars (USD), unless otherwise specified. All prices are per person and based on double occupancy. We also welcome single travelers, and because our selected hotels are priced by the room, the per person cost for accommodations occupied by one person is higher than that shared by two people. We aim to keep single supplements at a reasonable cost. Please note that single rooms may be smaller than those to which you are accustomed.
