Escorted Food & Wine Tours in Italy

Join us for outstanding 7-day tours of Tuscany or Piedmont! You pick the dates, gather a group of 8-12 friends, and we take care of the rest. Our exclusive small group tours of Italy are focused on culture, food, wine and fun. We stay all week in a beautiful Italian villa so you can unpack, relax and enjoy your gorgeous surroundings. You will travel with us - we do not hire anyone else to lead our tours of Tuscany and Piedmont. These are Italian holidays planned for travelers who may not typically “do tours,” but would like to have experts handle all the details.

Experience in Hospitality and Leading Tours

Greg and Betsy have been leading tours for over 20 years.

If you want the trip of a lifetime, please consider Euro Travel Coach. If you like great food and wine and a personal touch in every aspect of a trip, then an ETC Small Group Trip should be your next experience. Greg, Betsy & Chelsea are the ultimate hosts. Whether it’s about the hill towns, restaurants, wineries, or hiking, they’ve got you covered. Their backgrounds in wine service and education were especially useful on our trip. All the activities were well planned and a good combination to suit everyones’ tastes. The villa we stayed in was beautiful and a perfect combination of old-world Tuscany and modern amenities. We are booking our next Euro Travel Coach Trip soon!”
