SICICLANDO Policies/Guest Terms and Conditions

Reservations, Deposits, and Payments

We are pleased to take you on a Siciclando tour. These Policies/Terms and Conditions outline the agreement between you, the client, and Soul Italy Inc. doing business as Siciclando (referred to as Siciclando herein after). Once you indicate your intention to reserve a tour (by email or Hold My Spot), we will send you a link to our on-line reservation form.   A completed reservation form indicates your acceptance of our Policies/Terms and Conditions. We require 30% of the total trip cost per person as deposit to confirm your space.  The balance of the tour cost is due no later than 60 days before the tour departure. Once your full payment is received, we will send a Confirmation Letter with all the details included in the tour package so you can prepare for your tour.

Once you have filled out the reservation form and we have contacted you about the deposit amount you have two payment options:
1) Credit card – You will receive an e-mail with instructions to pay the deposit or to pay the full tour price by credit card through our on-line secure server.   Important: We do not store credit card details nor do we share customer details with any 3rd parties.

2) Wire transfer – If you choose this payment option, we will provide you with instructions for the transaction.
