Welcome to Grand Tourist! We invite you to discover the magic of touring in Europe in the footsteps of the original Grand Tour.
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 Istanbul, Venice to Athens, Madrid to Granada.
Our inspiration comes from the ‘Grand Tour’ of the 18th century, when British gentlemen travelled through France and Italy to discover art, culture, history and the treasures of Ancient Rome and Greece. We specialize 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.
Every Grand Tourist itinerary features a unique and exceptional experience - a private visit to a vineyard in the Prosecco region of Italy perhaps, with a chance to meet the producers and have lunch together. For lovers of fine food we would 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 vineyards of Champagne to the mysterious cave hotels of Cappadocia, Turkey we create imaginative and interesting travel experiences.
Why not join us in Monaco in 2014 for The Monaco Historic Grand Prix, where our guests will enjoy the classic car racing from the finest terrace in town. Or perhaps you might prefer the Italian Grand Prix at Monza - where Italian style and exuberance creates a wonderful atmosphere. For more details go to 'Experiences' and click on Italy.
