WHY CHOOSE US
We will do our utmost to satisfy all your requests: we will design a trip to suit just you. You can rely on our (direct) experience, on our ability to listen and understand the precise details of your needs, and on a network of carefully selected experts and local people.
Working with you we’ll find the very best that each place has to offer. If you like to embrace something different, immerse yourself in a culture, enjoy its food and its landscape, experience a tasting room, lose yourself in a painting or gaze in wonder at the nave of a church, if you love haute couture or are a street fashionista, do not hesitate to tell us.
We have traveled hundreds of thousands of kilometers by all means of transport, even on foot. We enjoy dishes prepared by Michelin-starred chefs and trying great wines; but we also love the taste of bread and chocolate and spring water, sitting on a mountain top or in an urban park. We know well the comfort of a chain hotel, the fascination of a resort, the charm of a historic building, the shelter offered by an alpine hut.
We are true professionals, people who plan experiences with character, for people of character.
