Our group tours to Italy were born eight years ago out of our love for all things Italian. There are so many reasons to travel to Italy with us; here are 15 reasons why our small group tours are the very best choice for your Italian holiday experience.

“We wanted to be able to offer our guests something over and above a cookie-cutter group tour of Italy. We’ve developed fantastic relationships with small local Italian family businesses in Italy. We love sharing our passion, telling stories, facilitating unexpected experiences, and bringing to life the hidden treasures of Italy,” said Carrol Helander.

“We have deliberately planned all the tours for the shoulder season in the European Spring and Autumn to avoid the heavy tourist season and long queues. We like to get off the well-trodden path and take our guests to the smaller towns where we can provide access to experiences which delight and surprise that they wouldn’t necessarily find for themselves,” said Sue Clarke.
