Optional Upgrades to Enhance Your Private Tour

FOR OUR GUESTS COMFORT THIS PRIVATE GUIDED FAMILY SHORE TRIP IS NOT OPERATED BY COACH. We never use vehicles larger than 7-person capacity on this trip. Because we specialize in personalized experiences we use luxury air-conditioned Mercedes Benz cars and minivans to tour our guests throughout the trip. Discover Italy close up in a Mercedes Benz minivan of up to 7 people that takes you into the very heart of the city. Cars and minivans can get closer to the main points of interest than larger buses. Larger buses and coaches are forbidden entry onto many of the town’s streets. You will definitely walk less and see more! Therefore, this high-quality option gives us access to most areas without concerns regarding traffic restrictions. Each minivan accommodates up to 7 guests. We can caravan more than one minivan for larger groups (Example: A party between 8 to 14 guests in two minivans, and a party of 15 to 21 guests in 3 minivans, etc.).

Baby seats are mandatory for infants, please request at time of booking.
