In 1999 our Founder and Director, dott. Mario Bernardi, was working as Interpreter and Guide for the Italian Ministry of Culture, giving tour and assisting tourist and staff at the Pantheon in Rome. Because of that many friends started to ask about tours of other museums and galleries as well as temporary Exhibitions. In the beginning of the year 2000 he started giving tours groups of friends starting with an Exhibition about the Impressionists at the Scuderie del Quirinale that opened just then. The mixture of competence, freshness and friendliness made those tours such a success that soon The Grand Tour was born, originally as a cultural association reuniting different experts: historians, art historians, architects, archaeologists and one philosopher. The idea was to create guided tours with a strong cultural and educational background but delivered by an expert acting as a friend rather than as a teacher or a classic touristy guide. It didn’t take long for it to become one of the most important organiser of guided tours in Rome with hundreds of groups led every year.
The Grand Tour also organised training for new guides in the same spirit, and after becoming a licensed Tour Operator, started to offer incoming services and multi day packages.
Thank you for helping us with our trip. The experience was better than we had expected (and our expectations were very high). As we ventured throught the cities we were more appreciative of the small group advantages. Your guides were incredible (knowledgeable, enthusiastic and friendly) , on our way home yesterday we could not decide on who was the “best” since they were all great. The local flavor that each guide gave added to our experience and offered a perspective that made the tour even more interesting.
We will recommend you to our friends and if you need a recommendation for other clients please fell free to provide our names. Hope to return to Italy n the next few years, we will be calling to arrange that trip!
Thank for all your help,
