Discover your "personal" Italy.
Italy is magical, but it is also a huge tourist destination, with most visitors going to the same places and doing the same things. We try to offer a "behind-the-scenes" look at local Italian life, traditions, and culture with a bit of the "Must-sees" thrown in. This is all customized to how you want your vacation to be and how you want to experience it.
We offer our clients suggestions of small localities, non-touristed restaurants and sites, and interesting off-the-beaten path activities. We plan farm tours, tastings of local specialty products, private cooking lessons, winery tours & tastings, walking, hiking, biking, or boating excursions, artisan demonstrations or classes, and more. You will meet the locals, visit quaint villages, stay in unique and charming accommodations, and most importantly, experience the Italian lifestyle and culture through its art, history, food and people.
Our creativity, resourcefulness, and in-depth knowledge of Italian customs, traditions, foods, sites, and the countryside, ensures that every detail will be meticulously taken care of and that the hidden treasures and personal touches that make travel truly memorable, will be a part of your experience. We take the worry out of everything. You just need to show up and start enjoying!
Almost everything we do is one-on-one for our clients. These are specially designed trips, customized to your wants and needs. We want you to enjoy a worry-free, effortless, and exclusive tour package to Italy.
We offer the "experience" of the country, not just the tour.
We design and provide you with a custom tailored itinerary as mentioned above and then act as your tour escort. We introduce you to local residents, restauranteurs, farmers, purveyors, winemakers, and artisans - where you can experience activities and unique opportunities not shared by the average tourist. We are your liaison and personal trip assistant at each location to make sure everything is handled accordingly and runs smoothly. This means we will help translate, guide you in local customs, make introductions, show you points of interest, assist you with "how things work", and share interesting stories and fun facts about Italian history and culture. Please contact us for pricing.
We provide a custom itinerary designed especially for you based on your travel parameters: your wants and must-sees, any special interests and, of course, your budget. We will provide you with a detailed day-to-day personalized trip itinerary; complete with all of your accommodations, tours, and transfers, along with other sightseeing suggestions, restaurant recommendations, and local insight to the areas you will be visiting. We also provide you with a short informational guide on things like car rentals and driving, traditions and customs, packing suggestions, eating in Italy, trains, money and more. Please contact us for pricing.
Our trip consulting service is the perfect answer for the more independent travelers who prefer to plan much of their trip on their own but need only a portion of their trip taken care of, or are in need of some extra direction and expertise. Perhaps you want to just “run it by us” so we can flush out any potential issues or problems and make sure your itinerary will flow, or maybe you’re just getting started and need some direction. We are here to help you complete the details of your trip using our in-depth knowledge, connections and local resources. Trip consulting fees begin at $50 (USD)
We offer customized itineraries in three ways:
Custom tours and Itineraries designed for the way you want to travel and see Italy.
