The Rise of the Private Tour

A private tour can provide the best of both worlds. You get to go on vacation with your friends and family on your chosen dates to your chosen destination but the stress and worry of researching and planning all of the details of your itinerary are taken care of for you by the experts.

We think this is precisely why over the past year and a half or so, we’ve seen a steady uptick in the number of private tours we’ve been hosting all over the globe. In fact, our private tours have bypassed the number of public group tours for this year. People are choosing to leave the nitty gritty details that can usually cause the most stress when planning a vacation to our talented and very capable tour operations team.

“Thanks for providing an opportunity for our family to have a stress free vacation.”

“I really appreciated you working in the tasting at Coppola and the Local was great fun. It was great to experience all ends of the spectrum from big business Coppola, to sustainable La Crema and then the two biodynamic vineyards.”

Our team works hard to ensure your vacation is executed to align with your needs and preferences. For example, if you are particularly keen on a certain wine varietal, we can make recommendations on changes or additions to your itinerary to include specific wineries that offer those wines.  Or if you have your heart set on visiting a specific landmark or museum, we can make sure we are working stopover into the trip.

“As a private booking we had lots of questions and made a number of changes to the basic tour. The staff was always helpful and prompt.”

Though we like to have these details planned out ahead of time, there are times when ideas or opportunities to adjust the itinerary come up during the tour where because you are on a private tour, which typically are smaller than our group tours, our guide can typically make adjustments to the itinerary on the fly and accommodate, when possible.

So what are you waiting for? Join the private tour movement, leave the details to us, and let us help you plan your next vacation – check out our Private Tours section for more details.
