It means we calculate tour prices based on two people per room.
Private rooms are available by paying the single supplement fee, which varies by the trip.
Summer Feet loves to run our trips and hates to cancel them. If low enrollment potentially impacts the operation of one of our multi-day tours you have the following options
The exception to this policy is Force Mejerur events.
For all our day trips, the minimum number of participants is two.
We cannot accept liability or pay any compensation where the performance or prompt performance of our contractual obligations is prevented or affected, or you otherwise suffer any loss, injury, death, inconvenience, or damage as a result of circumstances amounting to “force majeure.” “Force majeure” means any event or circumstances which we or the supplier of the services in question could not foresee or avoid. Such events and circumstances may include, acts of God, actual or threatened, war, insurrection, riots, strikes, civil action, decisions by governments or governing authority, technical or maintenance problems with transport, changes of schedules or operational decisions of air carriers, terrorist activity or the threat thereof, industrial action, natural or nuclear activity, epidemics/pandemics or the threat thereof, quarantine, medical or customs or immigration regulation, delay, or cancellation, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events outside our control.
Day Trips Cancellation Policy
Reservations require a $50.00 per person deposit, which is fully refundable in the event of a weather cancellation declared by Summer Feet Cycling. Refundable less $5.00 per person with 48-hour notification. Deposit is non-refundable in the event of a guest no-show or less than 48-hour cancellation.
Multi-Day Tours Cancellation Policy
If you cancel 61 days before departure, we will refund your deposit less a $200.00 per person cancellation fee.
If you cancel between 60 and 31 days before departure, you will receive a 50% refund or a 100% credit for future travel, valid for two years.
If you cancel 30 days or less before departure, there is zero refund. Exceptions to our cancellation policy cannot be made for any reason, including weather, terrorism, civil unrest, or personal emergencies. In addition, there is no refund for arriving late or leaving a trip early.
Our graduated and time-sensitive cancellation/refund policy is intended as liquidated damages and not as a penalty. Summer Feet Cycling uses participant Tour payments to prepare for the tour, pay its staff and suppliers, and other costs associated with its operations. It is difficult to ascertain the amount of actual loss or damages that would result if a participant or booking party cancels at a given point in time before the start of a tour. As a result, our policy reflects a reasonable estimate of the actual costs Summer Feet Cycling will incur in the event of participant or booking party cancellation at various points before Tour departure.
We strongly recommend you purchase trip cancellation insurance. Summer Feet Cycling LLC assumes no responsibility for non-refundable airline or hotel reservations or other travel costs. In the unlikely event that Summer Feet cancels a trip, you will receive a heartfelt apology, a tale of woe, and a 100% refund.
We highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance, including trip cancellation/interruption insurance. All cancellations must be received in writing or via confirmed email. A minimum $150 handling fee per participant will be retained for all Italy cancellations.
The following table explains cancellation fees for all tours offered in Italy:

*Tour price is defined as the listed tour price adjusted for any applicable single supplement or forced single room fees and discounts. Funds placed on an account cannot be used toward TourzPlus trips.
No refunds are possible after the tour begins. Refunds take 2-4 weeks to process from the date written cancellation is received. We reserve the right to cancel a tour prior to departure for any reason, in which case a full refund will be made if cancellation occurs 45 days or more prior to the scheduled departure date of the tour. Refunds are for tour price only and do not include transportation, hotel, or other expenses incurred on the part of tour participants. In the rare event that ExperiencePlus! is forced to cancel a tour within 45 days of the tour start due to an act of nature or force majeure ExperiencePlus! will place 100% of customer funds towards a future tour reservation to be used within two years of the cancellation date. Prices for overseas tours are based on international exchange rates and are subject to adjustment without prior notification in the event those rates should change. (Any increase resulting from such an adjustment shall not modify the cancellation provisions herein.)
You can obtain trip insurance through Summer Feet Cycling or a third party insurance provider. The cost of insurance is generally a function trip price, your age, and how far in advance your purchase the insurance. Please call our office for a quote.
On guided tours, our staff and support vehicle will be with you throughout the trip, helping you any way they can and sharing their knowledge of the are with you. Also, guided tours include most meals where self-guided tours only include breakfast. On self-guided tours, you will see a Summer Feet staff person on the first and last day of your tour and any day with a scheduled van transfer.
No, Summer Feet will arrange luggage transfers.
Participants on self-guided tours should be comfortable changing a tire on a bicycle. For other mechanical issues, we will direct you to the nearest bike shop or facetime with you to correct them if none of these remedies work will arrange to have one of our staff repair or replace your bike as soon as possible. Since self-guided tours operate in areas between one and four hours from our offices, we will take these steps as soon a possible.
On guided tours, the support van will happily give you a ride. On self-guided tours, participants are responsible for getting themselves to the next lodging property.
No worries, our founder Norman is deathly allergic to shellfish. On all our tours, we can accommodate any dietary restrictions or preferences.
There will be plenty of meals where lobster will be an option, including some breakfasts.
