Custom-Designed Private Tours
Is there a tour you and your group would like to do that does not fit the mold of our standard itineraries? Something a little different, or entirely different? Let us know, and we'll be glad to work with you to create just what you want.
Standard Private Tours
Would you and your group like to take one of our standard tours but keep it exclusive to your group? We can do that too.
Although we normally set our open tours at 8 to 12 guests, you set the number for your private tour. We've done private tours for as many as 38 and as few as 4. We are always happy to accommodate your particular needs.
Want to travel solo or with friends or family, without an escort?
Make the most of your time in Italy while you enjoy the flexibility and adventure of travel on your own!
It's easy to do with our Full Itinerary Planning package. We'll put our decades of expertise to work for you, helping you plan and map out your ideal vacation. And, a huge plus, while you're actually in Italy, you won't have to waste time on arrangements and fussy details; they'll already be in place and you'll have more time to see and do the things that you wanted in the first place.
(And if you don't yet have a clear idea of where you want to visit, do not worry. We have plenty of ideas you can consider.)

Want to travel solo or with friends or family, without an escort – and have us take care of all your in-Italy arrangements and reservations?
We'll start with full Itinerary Planning (as above). Then we'll make your in-Italy arrangements and reservations according to your needs and wishes.

(We do not take commissions from hotels, tour guides, transportation etc. In the event we are offered a commission, we pass that on to you.)
"My wife and i love Italy and have travelled there several times. By far the one trip we enjoyed most was organized from the moment we arrived at Milan airport until the day we left some 11 days later by Daniel Lesnick – every travel guide, hotel and driver he provided for us was top rate. A beautiful trip!"

"Dan – We are in Rome, our last night. I can't say enough good about our time here!!! The hotel – perfecto! Christine [our Rome guide] – the best; like having your own history professor walk you around... The Sistine Chapel night tour – magnificent! Every detail of the trip has been fantastic..."
