Welcome to Custom Tours of Italy dot com.  

If you'd like to experience your own custom, privately guided vacation of Italy, then read on! I book everything for your private Italy vacation from the air travel to all other aspects and escort you on your Custom vacation of Italy!....Post Covid in 2023,

I tour guided two couples in May for 21 days and then in October I escorted one couple for 22 days - I do NOT have pre-made itineraries and use the "cookie cutter" tour concept! Those lower budget shorter duration pre-packaged tours to Italy have you staying only 2 nights in places trying to see too much. I don't do less than 3 nights in any one place.


Italy is SO much better if you slow it down and customize your own guided tour of Italy. My tours are typically smaller group tours with 2 to 6 tourists with me in Italy on the local level.

There's a lot to see in Italy so don't try to do it all in one trip, assume you will go back again! Lets determine together what you like to do when traveling and then I ESCORT YOU on your very own private Italy vacation, no two tours are alike! 

Email me to start the process, there are no bad questions and itineraries are NOT pre-made - it's CUSTOM TOURS OF ITALY!

From the moment we got off the plane we knew we had made the right decision to hire Chris as our guide. He takes great pride in his attention to the details and ensured we had the time of our lives! He created a very diverse plan that enabled us to experience many different attractions and activities in the Italian cities that made them culturally unique. We would hire him was great!
