Presto Tours Story
Just about fifteen years ago, I traveled by train across Italy and when my feet hit the pavement in Rome that was it. I HAD to move there… And I did!
But I didn’t speak Italian, didn’t know how to cook, didn’t have a place to live, a job, and definitely didn’t have any Italian fashion sense (some things never change). More to the point… I didn’t know anything about Italy.
As life would have it, I ended up meeting tour guide after tour guide to the point where all of my friends in Rome were either tour guides themselves or worked with tour guides. I ended up learning a LOT!
I created friendships with super hospitable and highly educated tour guides who never made me feel bad for not knowing something and that’s what gave me inspiration to create Presto Tours.
I realized that spending just a day with one of these prized people can change your entire experience of Italy. It really makes the world feel smaller too, and nowadays I think it’s so important to connect face to face with others. I want to share our guides with our guests.
Presto’s Mission Statement
Presto Tours was created to be a boutique tour service. Living in Italy, we know the city like the back of our hands and we also know tour guides both professionally and personally. It is our promise to our guests to pair them with guides of outstanding character and knowledge. We have scouted out the best guides in order to have the utmost confidence in putting our guests in the hands of guides whom we trust because we understand that visiting a foreign country is just one of those things that you need to get right the first time.
What sets Presto apart
If we haven’t lived in your destination, we’ve been there. You can trust that all of our suggestions are based on first-hand experience.
