Genuinely Great Guides
(fun, knowledgeable, professional & 100% home grown)
Our guides are all residents of Italy and consequently have an insider’s knowledge of the areas they guide in. They are also fully licensed by local authorities as guide ambientale (“outdoors guides”). In other words, you won’t be met with a recent trainee enjoying a gap year abroad on your dime, nor are you paying for an “owner-hosted” tour led by a presumptuous straniero who stumbles through Italian with a thick accent.
You will find among our guides experts in Roman architecture, art history, environmental science, horticulture and vinting as well as a number of other specialties. You’ll also find them fluently bilingual, warm, and fun-loving — pleased to help you go on a shopping spree or introduce you to a game of briscola (an Italian card game) with the locals at the central cafe.
Naturally, they know the restaurants where the locals like best to eat, as well as the Michelin-starred eateries. And if you wake up in the morning wanting to walk a few more hills than the day before (or a few less), they can easily adjust accordingly.
Flexibility and spontaneity informed by an intimate knowledge of the local region, supported by thorough organization and attention to detail: these are the hallmarks of every GIROSOLE tour (not to forget all the good fun involved, too!)
