The Presto Tours Touch

These are things that makes Presto Tours stand out.

We’ve got your Back!

Before you choose your tours, Presto Tour Experts are here for you to help create your Italy experience.  Whether you’d like to join art history tours or food and wine tours, we are always here to help with suggestions or reservations to create the trip that you’re imagining for you and your friends or family.

When you book your tour, you’ll get all the nitty gritty details of where to meet for your tour (we can pick you up at your hotel too if you prefer!), how to dress for your tour (yes, believe it or not, there are some places that require a certain dress code), what to bring (usually just yourself and a bottle of water is all you’ll need!), and where the tour will end so you can plan the rest of your day from there.

On top of that, we’ll send you handy tips on getting to your destination from the airport, navigating the cities, day trip recommendations, restaurant recommendations, and some other fun stuff like fun Italian movies to watch before you get here and books that are great to read to get you excited about your trip.

We’ve Served Over 37,000 Smiling Faces 

I’ve been organizing tours since back in 2005 when it dawned on me that my circle of friends in Rome was heavily dominated by tour guides and tour gurus.

Meeting many English speaking travelers in Rome, I thought I’d try my hand at matchmaking my tour guide friends with travelers.

I always get so excited when I see smiling faces on tour or when I get an email from a guest saying how spending a day with one of our guides went down as the highlight of their trip.

That’s what I always aim for and well, truth be told, our team of guides makes that job pretty easy for me 😉

Not Your Average Tour Guides

Bored of the thought of going on a tour?  A tour is a tour, right? Well, is wine wine?  Is chocolate chocolate? Is coffee coffee? So…yeah.  Does that answer your question?  Listen, there’s lots of boring tours out there but that doesn’t mean ours are!  Actually, quite the opposite.

Here’s the thing, the experience of a tour is really all about the guide and to be flat out blunt…I don’t hire boring guides.  I hire highly qualified and highly educated guides….yes.  But the icing on the cake of our guides is that they’re personable, and entertaining, and friendly.  They are warm and hospitable and more than that…they love what they do!

In fact, guiding is usually a past time for our guides.  Most Presto Guides are professors, archaeologists, actors, artists, and sommeliers.  They choose to guide because they love meeting new people and they love sharing the Italian culture.

So rest assured, you’re in good hands with our guides.

Guided Tours In Italy

Enhance your tourism experience with a Presto Guide and discover the joy of traveling!

Gelato Rome Italy

Taste Local Flavors

Let’s face it.  The real reason everyone goes to Italy is for the food!  We have hot tips for you on where you gotta go when you’re in town.  From delis to gelato shops to pizzerias to panini masters, we’ve got your back.  Of course, there’s the 2 hour sit down meal experience at a proper restaurant that you won’t want to miss out on.  We can make restaurant reservations for you too.  To be blunt, we’ve got your back when it comes to your taste buds and your tummies.

Attend Local Events

As you probably know, Italy holds tight to its traditions.  From Venice’s Carnival Festival to wine flowing through its water fountains in Castelli Romani, to celebrating Mother Mary on her December Roman Catholic holiday, there’s scarce a day that some sort of festival isn’t going on.  We’ll keep you in the loop on events going on during your travel dates so you get to experience the Italian ways.

Girlfriends in Italy

Travel with Friends

What better way to get to know someone than a trip abroad?  Ok, you may want to get separate rooms but really, it can be difficult to meet up with friends these days.  We are all so spread out so why not plan a little friend reunion in Italy?  There’s so many ways to bond with friends while in Italy.  Most all of the ways revolve around food, coffee, and wine of course.  But also walking.  Did you know Italians hold strong to a tradition of taking a “passeggiata” ? A passeggiata is a slow paced stroll where you spend quality time just enjoying.   We enjoy.  We share knowledge and create everlasting memories.  These are the kinds of experiences that are the glue to friendships.  So yeah, bring a friend!

Go Solo

Nervous about traveling solo? With the right precautions and planning, traveling solo is really the best especially when life starts to feel overwhelming.  It provides the opportunity to connect with ourselves and make new connections with fellow travelers and new people.  When you travel solo, it’s an especially great idea to join our group tours where you’ll meet fellow travelers as well.  Lots of our guests end up befriending each other.  That’s one of our favorite aspects of setting people up on our tours.  People come solo but leave with new friends.  What more could you ask for than forging friendly human connection?
