Is there a dress code?Updated 17 days ago

Embarking on an unforgettable European tour? Whether you're exploring historic landmarks, indulging in cultural delights, or marveling at architectural wonders, your attire can play a role in ensuring a seamless and respectful experience. While there's no universal dress code for our tours, it's essential to be mindful, especially when visiting religious sites. It is always a good idea to check the specific requirements for your tour. This can be found directly on your voucher! 


General Dress Guidelines: 

There's no strict dress code for most of our tours, allowing you the flexibility to dress comfortably. However, it's advisable to consider the nature of each tour and the potential inclusion of religious sites. Always check your voucher and the tour's description for the most up-to-date requirements. 


Tours that Include Religious Sites: 

Some tours may take you to religious sites that have specific dress requirements. It's crucial to check the details of your specific tour for any such considerations. This can be found in the FAQS of your tour on the website and on your voucher. Below, you’ll find some religious sites that do have some requirements.  


Recommended Attire: 

To ensure you're prepared for any dress requirements, consider packing versatile clothing. A shawl or scarf can easily be draped over shoulders, and longer bottoms can be worn when needed. Choose breathable and comfortable clothing, especially if you're exploring during warmer months. You can stay stylish while being mindful of cultural and religious sensitivities. 


Other Aspects to Consider: 

Some tours may involve walking or require specific footwear. Ensure your shoes are comfortable for exploration while meeting any practical requirements. Keep an eye on the weather forecast for your tour destinations and pack accordingly. Layers are often a great choice for adapting to changing weather conditions. 


Remember, your comfort and respect for local customs are key. By being conscious of dress codes, especially at religious sites like the Vatican and Sagrada Familia, you contribute to a positive and culturally aware travel experience. By staying informed about potential dress requirements, you can confidently enjoy your tour without any unexpected hiccups. Feel free to contact our support team for any clarifications or guidance. Pack smart, dress stylishly, and get ready for an incredible journey across Europe!
