When people plan a tour of a new country or an unfamiliar city, the go-to options have always been booking a group tour or trying to go at it alone, DIY-style. While these approaches do produce great memories to last a lifetime, they do come with some drawbacks and a great deal of compromise—be it regarding the places you get to visit, or the amount of time spent on each destination. Fortunately, there is another way to experience and explore the best of the world’s hidden gems that not a lot of people are familiar with. Private tours are too easily overlooked by many who think that these kinds of trips might be too expensive to book. What they don’t realize is that these tours can easily be as affordable as any other type of tour, with the bonus of more intimacy and greater freedom to explore Italy as you please.

A private Italy tour can be put together according to the wants and wishes of your travelling party, regardless if you are travelling alone, with a particular someone, your family, or a small group. There are many real perks to booking a private tour, including but not limited to:

  • Detailed and customizable itineraries – Trying to put together a workable plan by yourself can quickly turn into a logistical nightmare, even for a seasoned traveler. Group tours may provide you with pretty solid itineraries, but you just have no control over them, nor can you adjust them as quickly as you can with a private tour because of the needs of the entire party. Private tours can be customized to your needs, according to your desires.
  • All details will be taken care of for you – Private tour operators know all the ropes, and they have all the inside information you will ever need to make sure your tour goes smoothly. Booking a private tour is an effortless way to get the trip you want without the hassle of DIY planning.
