About this trip

We are locals, and we have developed this itinerary so that you get a full immersive experience. We have taken into consideration all aspects of you vacation, from what to eat to how much time is spent driving, how many activities we enjoy per day, to your comfort and safety.

Our goal is for you to experience as much of the local culture as possible without having to think about any of the logistics along the way. This is why this particular tour includes TWO Bi-Lingual Tour Directors who are available for the group at all times. This allows us to set the pace for those seeking more adventure and for those seeking to sit back and relax at the same time.

Senior Tour Description

Dante and I are part of the “Sandwich Generation”.  We have a young daughter and aging parents.  Over the years, our parents and their friends have traveled with us throughout Italy, Austria, Croatia, Germany, and Slovenia, and we have had to learn to adapt our way of traveling to their way of traveling.

 

We have learned that you don’t need to do it all in one day!

​We have learned that older people don’t (necessarily) need 3 huge meals per day!

​We have learned that sitting in a piazza people watching IS an activity!

​We have learned that having some time planned in to just put your feet up can make the difference between an enjoyable vacation and work!

​We have learned that life isn’t about rushing around.  Taking some time to slow down and take in your surroundings creates lifelong memories!

 

We created our “Senior Tour” after doing a web search, and seeing that there aren’t many tours out there that let people just slow down.  We have carefully planned this tour so that we see all of the biggest highlights, but this tour is about quality, not quantity, of sites we visit. 

We purposefully didn’t plan in all of the meals so that you don’t feel forced to eat a meal just because you paid for it, or because it’s “what the group is doing”.  During your free time, your Tour Directors will both be available to join you while you are out and about, or, if you prefer to have some free time to yourself, there won’t be any pressure on our part to join the group.

Our authentic experiences in Italy and other destinations really are different from the mainstream tour companies. Off the beaten path Italian itineraries coupled with great food and wine make our tours unique. We create itineraries based on what our guests have requested, instead of just following a pre-packaged itinerary. We know that the Holidays and travelling are a great chance for you to spend time together, so we spend careful time and attention to create a balance between activities and leisure when designing our itineraries.

Reviews

This was a trip of a lifetime! The hotels were all very nice. The excursions/day trips were fantastic! The free time allowed everyone to enjoy their time. Lorna was attentative,knowledgeable, and professional. If you have a chance to tour with either Lorna or Dante... do it. Book with them now. It is like touring/traveling with your best friend!
This trip was amazing! It was the perfect travel experience for those who are leery of group travel, but don't have the time, expertise, or inclination to organize their own trip. It felt more like a group of friends on adventure rather than a regimented, prepackaged program. Our local tour guides were excellent. We saw all the sights we expected, plus plenty more. We had lots of free time to explore on our own, but our most excellent Tour Director was always available to help us navigate the local customs and translate for us. The food was incredible. The sights beyond my expectations. I travel a lot, usually on my own, but I would not hesitate to travel again with VaFeltre.
