Escorted Group and Hosted Tours of Europe
A wide variety of tour companies offer escorted vacations to Europe, ranging from highly-structured, all-inclusive luxury vacations to more basic trips that cover accommodations, some meals, and the services of a tour guide, with lots of built-in free time for independent exploration. Some are tailored for specific age groups, activity levels, and interests, while others are designed to please a wider audience.
The benefits of all escorted tours are the same: having details of trip-planning mapped out in advance by someone else, and having experienced tour directors to guide you to the must-see attractions.
Here are a few itineraries of Italy that have stand-out features:
- Best of Italy: This guided tour of Italy has 2 night stays in each major city which allows a lot of personal freedom while enjoying the benefits of having a tour director showing you the most impressive and important historical sites.
- Flavors of Italy: A kaleidoscope of gastronomical treasures awaits you on this guided vacation filled with cooking classes and wine and olive oil tasting!
- Italian Concerto: This guided tour has everything! Visits to all the sites that are a must see in Italy combined with plenty of leisure time and includes time on the beach on the Amalfi Coast.
- Milan and Italian Treasures: A leisurely guided vacation that spend a languid six nights in Lake Garda combined with day trips out to Venice and Verona will make this exploration of northern Italy unforgettable!
A guided tour is an excellent value for your money. It is true that higher-priced tours generally have more inclusions and higher-end hotels than less-expensive tours. You don’t necessarily have to sacrifice quality and service to save money. Tour companies do their best to make your vacation a great value for money, helping every penny go further. Because the tours are organized in bulk, they benefit from reduced negotiated rates from hotels and suppliers which enables you to save up to 40% over organizing the same trip yourself. As meals, museums, accommodation, tour escort, driver and travel are often included it means you also have a realistic figure for the total price of your holiday from the word go; with no hidden costs and charges.
On an Escorted Vacation your memories will last forever. Whatever your reason may be, the friendships formed, the hassle free convenience, the relaxed pace, the great value, the sheer enjoyment – you’ll discover a whole new world on an Escorted Vacation.
