Immerse yourself in the beating heart of Italy and France, beyond the beaten path, in my carefully crafted small group tours of 6 to 12 guests for travellers who do not want a traditional big group tour or create your very own. A travel experience like no other, going beyond the surface so many tourists do not get to experience.


If you are looking for a truly unique and intimate travel experience to Italy or France, if you are looking to travel beyond the beaten path, you are in the right place. My Italy and France vacations are small cultural and culinary group tours that are genuine, intimate and informal, providing you with delights that excite the senses.

With my expertise in the destinations I offer, knowledge of the local cultures, regional fare and ability to speak the local languages fluently, I love giving you the benefit of firsthand experiences, offering you Exclusive not in the tour books experiences, a unique, memorable, once in a lifetime vacation, with a great balance of culture, food, wine, stunning natural and man-made sights.
While out in the country, I will take you on scenic country roads to charming local and countryside accommodations. In cities, you will be staying in centrally located historical properties within walking distance to major sites.

I’ll take you beyond the beaten path, to places that are quite different and truly magical.
A travel experience like no other, going beyond the surface so many tourists do not get to experience.

Our tour realized the dream my wife and sister in law wanted to fulfill: following the footsteps of their father as a paratrooper during the 2nd World War. We met many great people and have wonderful memories. I will always cherish the "down" times when Maureen and I had a sandwich and a beer at a sidewalk cafe in Paris, and a beer at a sidewalk cafe in Berlin with Frau Vogel. Looking forward to future travels!

We were fortunate enough to have had Audrey De Monte serve as Tour Manager for our 10 day family trip to Europe. The tour was a 10-day multi generational family tour (grandparents to teen age grandchildren) of the cities of Paris, Venice and Rome. Audrey was extremely well organized and always provided multiple suggestions to make sure that everyone was having a great time.
