Our Philosophy

Discover the magic of France, Italy and Switzerland with Grand Tourist. Mountains, valleys, historic towns, family-run farms and vineyards, private museums, unique restaurants, hidden palaces.

Grand Tourist is a unique travel company offering exceptional experiences for independent travellers.

Grand Tourist was established in 2005 in Great Britain. We are privately owned and offer exceptional itinerary planning, amazing journeys and the most original ideas. From London to Rome, Paris to Geneva, Venice to Athens, Istanbul to Vienna, Madrid to Granada.

Our inspiration comes from the ‘Grand Tour’ of the 18th century, when British ladies and gentlemen travelled through France and Italy to discover art, culture, history and the treasures of Ancient Rome and Greece. We specialise in unique journeys through France, Switzerland, Italy and the Mediterranean region. We offer a very high quality personal service to our clients and we pride ourselves on our attention to detail.

We speak French, Spanish, Italian and German in the office and we welcome clients from all over the world.

Every Grand Tourist itinerary features a unique and exceptional experience - a private visit to a vineyard in the Prosecco region of Italy perhaps. Or for lovers of fine food a gastronomic dinner in one of Italy's finest restaurants - next week our clients will be dining at Osteria Francescana, Modena. Recently voted 3rd best restaurant in the world!!

We offer travel consultancy services, itinerary planning, location services for film crews and independent hotel inspection.

Our ability to make things happen is impressive - we are one of the only British companies to have direct access to the wonderful  Hotel de la Ville (Monza) located directly by the Italian Grand Prix Circuit. In 2014 our clients ate breakfast in the same room as most of the F1 drivers on the grid!!

Happy travels in 2015 from the GT team,


 Janet, Matthew, Collette and William
