Booking information

Sicilyexplorer does not arrange tours on fixed dates. We want to avoid the risk that you buy flight tickets for a canceled tour, due to lack of participants.

Instead, Sicilyexplorer arranges tours for already formed groups, and the period is completely at your choice. These are the rules regarding group number in relation to our tours:

– Bike tours without guide: at least 2 people

– Bike tours with guide, wine and gastronomic tours: at least 8 people

– For any other groups with special requests, you can just send in the registration model and we will do our best to help you!

Sicilyexplorer takes care of all the bookings, price negotiations, guides, entrance fees and all details that make a successful holiday. We also assume total responsibility for settlements with suppliers.

Arranging group tours requires expertise. At the planning stages, a vast number of choices have to be made. After more than 20 years of experience in Sicily, we have gained both professional skills and market knowledge, in order to set up the very best program for you and your group.

If you wish, we offer a’ technical’ guide, who will take care of all practical matters, such as check-ins in hotels, deals with restaurants and bus companies and so on. The guide is also responsible for unforeseen events, such as sickness. You will be able to concentrate on the experience and the social atmosphere in your group.

How to cancel

The following rules will apply for cancellations: If the trip is canceled over 90 days prior to departure, you will be debited a cancellation charge.

If the trip is canceled between 89 and 40 days prior to departure, Sicilyexplorer will keep the 10% of the total price.

If the trip is canceled between 39 and 14 days prior to departure, Sicilyexplorer will keep 50% of the total price.
