When planning a trip to Italy, most people either get a full, pre-planned tour package or do everything on their own. However, some of them may have failed to consider that getting a custom Italy tour is a better option for their holiday.
After all, if you don’t get a custom tour, you may miss out on these three benefits:
You can visit specific places that may not be always included in the itineraries of package tours.
Let’s admit it—most Italy tour packages focus on its most popular cities, such as Rome, Florence, and Venice. This would put some kinds of travelers at a disadvantage. For example, those who want to reconnect with distant relatives residing in a small Italian town may not find a package meant for them. Those who want to visit or stay in a lesser-known town for peace and quiet may also not be able to get the right package.
That’s where custom Italy tours come in. With the help of our travel experts, we can help you create an itinerary that’s truly off the beaten path.
You have more freedom to adjust your schedule.
Yes, it’s true that in Italy tour packages, you are given blocks of free time to do whatever you want. However, there’s still a limit to the amount of customizations that you can request. After all, these packages are designed to maximize your time in Italy and value for your money. This sometimes translates to packed itineraries for these packages, with travelers barely spending more than a few hours in each town.
With a customized tour, you can opt to go for a more leisurely pace for your trip. You can decide to extend your stay at a specific place, if you wish. You can also have more activities thrown in. These include wine tastings at Tuscan vineyards, private boat cruises around Cinque Terre, or skiing in the Italian Alps.
You get all the perks of going on a DIY tour, but without the hassles.
While planning a DIY tour is fun, it can take a lot of time. After all, you’ll need to research which hotels have the best prices for a specific location. Or you’ll also need to compare offers from different tour operators for skip-the-line tickets at the Vatican Museums or the Uffizi Gallery. At the end of the day, if you’re pressed for time, you may just end up getting the first deal that pops up. This happens even if there are better offers out there.
That’s why getting a customized Italy tour is a better option. By having a travel expert onboard—someone who knows where and how to get the best deals—you’ll save lots of time and effort.
