Guided Land Tours
Land tours, be they guided or private, are a popular way to travel and see the world.
Ocean and river cruises offer travelers a floating luxury hotel along with the convenience of packing and unpacking once.
However, a land journey offers the more intrepid traveler the ability to enjoy a more immersive experience.
I have long stated that visiting Italy by land versus poking at it on a cruise ship from the ocean offers a far more enriching experience.
One isn’t inherently better than the other.
However, the land journey allows you time to mingle with the locals and offers you a much deeper dive into the destination.
For example, you would never get to see a Tuscan sunrise if you’re sitting on a three-hour bus ride to get to Tuscany from the ocean.
We have many wonderful memories from ocean and river cruises over the years. However, this Tuscan sunrise is etched into my very soul.
And oh, the times we’ve had walking the streets of iconic cities after the cruise passengers had all retreated to their ships.
Again, not necessarily better, just different.

Private Guided Land Tours
For those who prefer to travel privately or in their own small group of people, we are also experts to help you build a private, custom itinerary.
These experiences are labor-intensive to build and will require an upfront travel planning fee. However, if you can dream it, we can build it.
You should also know that we have a limited amount of capacity to build-out these itineraries.
However, if you want to visit Italy, Ireland, or anywhere else on the planet, we have custom-built scores of fabulous itineraries for our clients.
Whether you’re considering a group or private guided land tour, we have the experience and expertise you help you in the decision-making process.
We are intimately familiar with our “go-to” guided land tour companies and we’re happy to help you understand the distinctions between each of these companies.
Lastly, you’re not going to get a better price going directly to these various brands, so why not take advantage of our considerable experience.
Like we say, “We do the work. You have the fun!”
