Services of a tour leader for both groups and independent travellers
A tour director is not just a group travel co-ordinator; they can make the difference between a good trip and a great trip for groups and individuals alike. Our tour directors are one of the reasons TBI is so popular. They are there to co-ordinate your trip; plan the best routes and the best times to experience the attractions when they are less busy. They will be your 24-hour travel guide, an expert in history, geography and transport, as well as a concierge to arrange any last minute requests. They travel with you to ensure that your itinerary runs like clockwork, even if there are unexpected events.
Our tour directors are the best in their field – knowledgeable, enthusiastic and open minded. They each have their own style, but each one of them is totally dedicated to their job and eager to wow their travelling companions with truly excellent service.
What our tour directors say about their job:
Daniela Barra, tour director, Italy
“This is a 24-hour a day job and sometimes it feels much longer, but I love it! There’s lots of planning behind the scenes but I have to make sure that my guests feel like it just happens naturally. There’s always a challenge but I enjoy that, and the best part of my job is seeing my guests experiencing life as it really is in Italy.”
Dimitri Pavone, tour director, Italy
“Seeing my favourite destinations come alive in the eyes of my guests, when I describe what has happened here in the past, is the reason I do my job. Some of my guests come with background knowledge, others with none at all, but when they leave they leave with fresh ideas and that excites me. Travelling really opens the mind and I love sharing my part of this beautiful country with visitors who may one day return.”
Antoinette Simeone, tour director, Italy
“I think that it’s a gift to do this job. It requires patience, organisational skills, adaptability and so much more, but what I receive in return is priceless. I must always be 24 hrs ahead of things to ensure itineraries run smoothly. Sometimes there are changes for operational reasons, but I must ensure my guests are unaware of any difficulties so that it does not spoil their experience. I want them to experience the very best things, and waiting around when it can be avoided is not one of them!”
Nicolas Molinari, tour director, Italy
“The Italian way of life is what a lot of my guests ask me about whilst we are visiting this part of Italy. I enjoy explaining the very simple way of life to them, and also let them experience a little of it for themselves. The local customs and ways of life seem to be so different from their own, but for a few hours they can become an honorary Italian. It’s a pleasure to be with people who really come alive from their experiences.”
