Highly recommended

“My wife an I had the good fortune to join four others for a tour of the Ascoli Piceno area of Italy in September 2018 led by Giovanni and Chantelle. If you are interested in avoiding the touristy of parts Italy, if your are interested in gaining a better insight into the culture and the cuisine of this part of Italy, if you want to visit one of the more picturesque parts of Italy and you want to experience the intimacy of a small group; this may be the tour for you. The accommodation was excellent as was the food experience. It was a well paced tour, a typical day would start shortly after nine, a drive through the rugged country side in the region, a visit a hill-top village, historical site, vineyard, etc. and then on to a wonderful lunch. This would be followed a visit to another site, returning to the hotel in late afternoon. One cannot enough good things about the tour leaders, they are very knowledgeable about the region and most accommodating to the needs of the tour participants. We would likely recommend this tour.”

“If you’re tired of travelling with busloads of fellow tourists then a small boutique tour with The Italian on Tour is the perfect solution. Chantelle and Giovanni have put together a wonderful introduction to the region they call home based around the beautiful town and province – Ascoli Piceno.
I was travelling solo for the first time, but they made it entirely comfortable and made me feel very welcome. They take groups of up to 8 (ours was 6) and because you base yourself in Ascoli there is no packing and unpacking every day. Each day is a mix of wineries, culture, cooking classes, long lunches, local sites and beautiful views.
There’s plenty of time for yourself, and Chantelle and Giovanni take the time to show you anything that you have a particular interest in. If you want to do some extra shopping they’ll happily show you their favourite places. This is relaxed touring with a personalised touch where you are meeting the winemakers or producers. This is where the tour operators live and work, so they have relationships with the people you meet that go beyond herding people in with the hope they will buy merchandise. Every experience feels very authentic.
Ascoli itself was a great base for the tour. As a solo traveller it felt very safe. I was completely comfortable wandering around by myself in my free time.”
Unforgettable trip!

“My partner and I had an unforgettable trip to Ascoli Piceno in September on Chantelle and Giovanni Tour. They were amazingly warm and helpful and I couldn’t recommend it more!”

“This tour was without doubt the best tour we have done. Giovanni and Chantelle have put together a package that is second to none. Their intimate local knowledge enables them to take you to amazing places that are not crowded and generally not on most tourists agendas. They have partnered with some exceptional people that own the restaurants and wineries that you visit enabling you to have personable experiences and hear their interesting stories first hand. The accommodation in Ascoli Piceno was superb. The hotel staff were lovely and happy to help with anything you might need. Its location was also exceptional, allowing you to easily stroll into the main city piazza and soak up the atmosphere of the locals living life the Italian way. The food we experienced with Giovanni and Chantelle was absolutely brilliant, in lovely small boutique wineries prepared and served by the owners to first class restaurants with magnificent views and ambiance. The small group enabled the flexibility to accommodate individual preferences. Giovanni and Chantelle have a genuinely warm and friendly style that ensures you feel very comfortable in their company. A perfect tour, well done Giovanni and Chantelle, couldn't recommend it highly enough.”
