Guided Tours in Umbria

Small Group Tours:

Groups of as few as 4 people can make up a tour. Choose your area of interest or let me craft one especially for you. I specialize in cultural and art themed tours with a strong emphasis on great food and wine.  Small tour packages include accommodations, pick up and drop off at airport, tours, meals, and most other fees. All inclusive tour packages average between $2500 and $3000 per person, depending on activities. (Price for a minimum of 4 people sharing the largest apartment -Assisi.  Other room/apartment configurations also available.)

2016 Themed Group Tours

Join us for one of the themed tours already planned for 2016 or, if you have a family event (birthday, anniversary, wedding, or whatever) I can put together an all inclusive package you’ll love. Stay in Umbria or take day trips to Siena, Arezzo, Cortona, or Florence. You name it, I’ll make it happen. The palazzo sleeps 14 guests with additional rooms at the town’s hotel a few blocks away. (Remember nothing in Bettona is more than a ‘few blocks away” in any direction.)

Tours are from 7 to 10 days and range in price from $2500 to $3750 per person. Double occupancy is preferred and there is an up-charge for one guest in a room. Included in packages are accommodations, all transportation, tours, meals, admissions/activity fees, and pick up/drop off at airport.  Air fare is never included.
