    Wingbuddy has cancelled our tour due to COVID-19 and is refusing to refund our money, claiming only that they will offer vouchers instead. This is disgusting. We want our money back!

    Dear Mr. Neufeld, You didn't book your trip on TourRadar. As explained multiple times and even over the phone directly by our CEO, we understand very well that you would prefer a refund rather than a travel credit. Believe us, if that was possible, this... Show more

    Overall an excellent tour. Sabrina is fantastic. She is very knowledgeable, cheerful and has a great deal of patience. However, the hotel in Venice could be better. It was the only sour point of a beautiful tour.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • Does it matter what time we arrive on the first day of the tour?

      No, it doesn't matter at all! You can arrive at any time on the first day of the tour.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Transfers between the airport and the hotel in Rome before and after your tour is included in the tour price and is depending on your flight schedule. After you book your tour, you can send us your complete flight details and we will confirm your included transfers.

    • Which airport in Rome should I fly into?

      Typically, our guests fly to FCO, from where transfers are included.

    • If I purchase the tour and cannot travel, are there any refunds?

      The deposit/balance is 100% non-refundable as we secure availability and your booking. We always recommend travellers to purchase insurance in order to be protected in case of any valid reason preventing you from travelling.

    • Is a visit to the Vatican included in this tour?

      No, unfortunately not. The entry to the Vatican is not included. However, you may have time on your first day of arrival to arrange a tour to the Vatican with entry included.
