Our Philosophy

Discover the magic of travel in Europe with the exceptional service that we offer at Grand Tourist. Make 2014 the year that you really discover the wonder of France, Italy, Spain and Greece.

Grand Tourist was established in 2005 in Great Britain. We are an independent luxury tour operator, offering the highest quality travel services 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 touring 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. Our philosophy is simple - to create a unique and exceptional trip for each of our valued guests.

We speak French, Spanish, Italian, German and Mandarin 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 we suggest lunch at Uliassi, on Italy's Adriatic Coast, one of the finest restaurants in Italy. We'd arrange lunch on the terrace, a visit to the kitchen to meet the kitchen brigade and a chance to meet Mr Uliassi himself! From the palaces of Venice to the mysterious cave hotels of Cappadocia, Turkey we create imaginative and interesting travel experiences.

Why not join us in 2014 on the shores of Lake Orta (Italy) to discover the finest modern cooking in Northern Italy. Or perhaps you might prefer the Italian Grand Prix at Monza - we are the only travel company in England to have our own rooms at the Hotel de la Ville (Monza) located directly by the grand prix circuit.
