My tours are conceived for small groups, families, single travellers interested in making their holiday a real experience of life, out of crowded and unpersonal standard guided tours. Structured on the visitor's main interest, from art to food, my tours are based on a deep knowledge of the area and on a fifteen years experience in communication.
