Exploring the beautiful landscapes, history, and rich culture of Tuscany is a dream come true for many. Doing so in the company of dozens of strangers, however, may not be. That is precisely why discerning travelers seek out the experience only luxurious private tours can provide them.

An excursion to Tuscany that is facilitated on a private tour will differ from any other experience travelers may have enjoyed. These tours are designed from the ground up to meet the unique requirements of an individual guest, couple or small group. Unlike solo travel that can leave people in a lurch due to language and cultural barriers and lack of local knowledge, this type of travel comes with the bonus of a dedicated guide or driver. Also unlike group tours, private excursions are truly private. That means guests have complete and full access to their guides throughout their journeys.

Guests who choose to explore Tuscany on a private tour will find these advantages make this form of travel favored by those who put a premium on experiencing the best of this region:

  • The made-from-scratch itineraries – Travelers who book private tours of Tuscany are able to have custom created itineraries made for them. The flexibility to explore the museums of Florence one day and go horseback riding through the hills the next cannot be found on large, guided tours. Guests will even find they can experience Tuscany at a more leisurely pace since their dedicated guide is strictly at their disposal.
  • The detailed knowledge – People who travel alone or in large tour groups are likely to miss out on local flavors, cultural experience and access to guides who can help them understand the stories behind landmarks. While group tours provide guides, travelers often find it is difficult to hear their explanations of sites or ask questions. Private tours remove this barrier to enjoyment by design.
  • The luxurious experiences – Companies that specialize in private tours have the local knowledge and connections to ensure their guests have tremendous experiences every step of the way. From booking only the best four- or five-star hotels to offering private culinary tours that may include learning how local artisans craft cheese, olive oil and wine, the personalized experiences are like nothing else.

Experiencing the beauty and wonder of Tuscany is a dream for many. Doing so on a private tour provides benefits that other options simply cannot deliver.
