Benvenuti in Italia!
Want to make the most of your trip to Italy? You’re in the right place. Our team is made up of travel experts who work 24/7 to share the tips and tricks they’ve learned as locals living in Italy… with you!
In fact, we’ve created all of our experiences, from our guided walks to our full-day excursions, as if we were providing them for visiting friends. We’ve designed every single one to engage and inspire you. That’s why our group size is always a maximum of 12—and absolutely no larger. It’s why our guides get top marks for being enthusiastic, entertaining and expert. And it’s why our tours themselves aren’t just tours: They’re some of the most creative, exclusive and fun explorations of Italy!
We’re so passionate about Italy, in fact, that we want to share the best of Italy with you—in every way we can. We share our expertise with thousands—for free— through our blog, Facebook, and Twitter. Our travel experts don’t charge you a dime for taking your questions and planning your itineraries. And we give back to Italy: From purchasing carbon offsets for every transfer to supporting local causes like the rebuilding of the Cinque Terre, we’re 100% committed to sustainable travel and helping the country we love so much.
Top-Rated Walking Tours for Your Vacation to Italy
Why walk with us:
- Our walks are big on discovery—and small on size: Our group tour maximum is just 12 people per guide. Our average group size? Eight. That means you’re heard, not part of the herd.
- Our prices are all-inclusive. No hidden costs or “surprises” on the day of the tour. We promise.
- We give back. Feel good about booking with us: Through donations, marketing and raising awareness, we support sustainable travel and good causes in Italy.
- We see sights… differently. And you will, too. Discover the Colosseum, Sistine Chapel, or Doge’s Palace in ways you never thought possible. Like without the crowds. Or with a part of the sight that other tourists just don’t get to explore. Not to mention with a guide to bring it all to life.
- We prize passion. Travelers, including even Rick Steves, consistently say our guides are some of the most enthusiastic and engaging in the biz.
- Private walks? They’re personal. Our private tours are 100% customizable. Each one has add-on options that let you go in-depth to what you love the most. We can even help you create a custom tour from scratch!
- We walk… away from the guidebook. Along with the must-see sights, we visit the off-the-beaten-path gems that will make your trip to Italy.
- English fluency? It’s a prerequisite. All of our guides are fluent English speakers. And we do only English tours. That means you’ll never be on a tour that’s given in, say, three languages—which cuts down on the learning and the fun.
- We travel like it’s 2013. We’re one of the most-connected and cutting-edge travel companies around. That’s why you can—and should!—find us on our blog, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest and Google+.
- We’re not just a travel company. We’re a movement. Just check out the stats: In a little over a year we’ve gained more than 24,000 followers on Twitter, 18,000 likes on Facebook, 50,000 views on YouTube and a million hits on our blog.
So join the Walks movement. Get in touch—whether via phone or email, Skype or Facebook, a blog comment or even Twitter. Whether by helping you plan your itinerary, find a hotel, or pick a tour, our travel experts are thrilled to help you make your Italy trip the ultimate in both fun... and discovery!
