Luxury minivan guided travel and vacations
Discover Italy with your own private chauffeur guide
Discover the Beauty and History of Italy with your own guide: we aim to be a high quality luxury tour operator in the country of cultural travel, gourmet food and fine wine, and stunning landscapes. Your private driver guide will personally attend to your needs at all times. Your trip will be made for you exclusively, and excursions will be customized to match your exact dates, specific needs and special interests. Our only specialty is custom escorted travel across Italy with dedicated air-conditioned minivan transport. With such serenity, you will find it is no surprise that so many of the world's famous artists, poets and musicians come from or were drawn to Italy.
Your private driver-guide will be complemented by local specialist guides, and we will introduce you to real, everyday Italians. We know Italy and its people, and are eager to communicate our passion on our tours. We are renowned for our efficient, unobtrusive service, and for our in-depth knowledge of our country. You will really be excited by our country on one of our tours!
We invite you to customize your tourism experience to suit your interests and needs. Have a look at some of our pre-designed escorted itineraries that offer unique explorations of what this beautiful country has to offer. Italians have built-in sense of style, and the country's fashion, furniture or automotive designers lead the way in their fields. Our designer tours follow that heritage. We will make you see the natural and architectural delights in every corner of Italy; whether Roman ruins, Renaissance churches or timeless hilltop villages.
Heritage, food and wine
A scenic and comfortable package will be arranged for you to maximize your vacation. You will have the opportunity to visit and explore some of the beautiful and historical sights, and enjoy our informative commentary on your very own excursion in Italy, avoiding large tour groups and getting out of the beaten path when possible. In addition, you will experience authentic Italian cuisine, and sample some of the fine wines of the world. Italians are blessed to live in a spectacular and culturally rich country and, thanks to our guides, you will be able to share in many of its pleasures.
We know our subject well, and we are based in Italy. Our clients are mostly Americans from the USA and Canada. Without any exception, we run each tour especially adapted to your needs and interests. Our itineraries are made for one couple of travelers; sometimes a small group that includes their children, family or friends.
We are not able to cater for groups larger than six persons, or to supply arrangements for independent travelers. That gives you the guarantee of a customized trip tailored to your exact needs, and perfectly organized by on-site specialists.
The real Italy
Having a private driver and guide allows you to discover Italy the exact way you want to, and at a pace that corresponds to your needs. The driver not only takes care of directions and getting around, but also introduces you to friendly Italians, little known places, hidden treasures - a unique and genuine tourism experience that group tours are unable to offer. Your exclusive custom tour will be worth every cent of it. Italy has more UNESCO World Heritage Sites than any other country. Visitors are attracted by the sheer volume of history enclosed within the Italian Peninsula. And let's not forget Italian food and wine; eating is a passion for Italians and they happily talk about food all the time.
