Frequently asked questions

What happens after I book?

Once you complete your booking you will receive a confirmation email. Feel free to reach out to our customer service team at hello@welcomepickups.com for any specific questions regarding your booking.

Can I customize the tour based on my needs?

Of course, that is one of the main benefits of having a Welcome experience. You can customize every last bit of the experience, from points of visit to time spent per landmark to adding in an extra food stop.

Will there be an official tour guide?

An official tour guide is not included because the overall experience focuses on the local’s perspective. The drivers are very knowledgeable regarding the points of the visit but they cannot be compared with a licensed tour guide who can give more in-depth information regarding historical facts and information. If you like to include an official tour guide in the experience, please, let us know via email after the booking is completed.

In the summer months, the sun is especially strong (even on cloudy days) so we recommend that you wear a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect yourself. Also, be sure to drink enough water throughout the day to stay hydrated.

Dress Modestly for Religious Monuments

We recommend dressing modestly (covering knees & shoulders) when visiting religious monuments. 

Bring your Camera

Photography is permitted in most sites unless otherwise mentioned.

Local Currency

We recommend you always keep local currency on you (euro) as many local merchants do not accept cards as payment.
