Private Cultural Tours
Custom Cultural Tours in Piedmont
Itineraries Designed just for You

Subject: you choose, or let us design a special itinerary for you.
Locations: are entirely dependent on what you want to do.
Duration: from a minimum of half a day, to a several-day itinerary.

Group Size: maximum 10 people.
Price: depends on your group size and requirements, but will include all elements of your itinerary: private transport, entrance tickets to monuments and events, guided tours, food and wine.*

Instead of participating in one of our standard tours, you can ask Chris Dobson to organise a custom-made itinerary around specific artistic themes, locations or gastronomy that particularly interest you. Alternatively, you can leave it to him to design a special Piemontese ‘experience’ just for you, including different locations, types of art, gastronomy, and even events. These can stretch from the regional capital Turin, to remote churches in the high valleys of the alps, to the wineries and restaurants of the Langhe. It all depends on how long you want to spend here.

Chris is happy to use his expertise to ‘open the door’ to the unique culture and art of this beautiful, and little-known region of Italy, specially for you. We look forward to seeing you soon!

*Please note: the only thing which is not included in your personalised itinerary is accomodation. This is because Chris Dobson is not a travel agent. We shall be perfectly happy to arrange it for you, but you will need to actually confirm the booking yourself.
