Our guidebook research gives us an edge in discovering the charming, centrally-located, often family-run hotels that promise to be a memorable part of your travel experience. Often quaint (sometimes creaky), and full of personality, they are run by Europeans who are also our friends.
Be prepared for stairs — hundreds of them. Many of our hotels don't have elevators...one more reason to pack light and be in good shape. Private bathrooms are the norm, but on a couple of tours a small chance exists that for one or two nights your bathroom may be down the hall (only if you see it listed under your tour's Activity Level page).
If you're traveling solo, you won't pay the mandatory "single supplement" required by other tour companies. Instead, you'll share a room with another tour member of the same gender. If you'd prefer to sleep alone, we offer a limited number of optional single supplements on all tours for an additional fee.
