Your personal driver will take you as close as lawfully possible to each place you visit and will wait for you with the vehicle for your return.
Tour Drivers are not licensed tour drivers and cannot personally guide guests to sightsee away from the vehicle (due to Italian laws that regulate licensed tour guides and professional drivers). However, your knowledgeable personal driver will be at your service offering general information while at the vehicle, assistance, and guidance if you prefer to follow an independent itinerary.
Whether you wish to be accompanied by a private licensed tour guide for your entire tour, or just reserve a licensed tour guide for key locations, we can reserve a guide for you and make all the arrangements so you will be met by your guide at the appointed time and location.
With a personal tour guide, guests glean insightful information about places of interest and gain an understanding of history, culture, and architecture.

As guests on our private excursions, you can also customize your private tour if you prefer to skip certain sites in favor of others. If you have a bucket list of places you dream of seeing, we can work around your ship’s schedule to show you as much as possible within the allotted time of your excursion.
On private excursions, guests may also tour at their own pace to accommodate their mobility or preference for a more relaxing or laid-back tour experience. Such welcomed flexibility is not possible on bus tours or group tours that are inflexible.
