Designing and implementing the perfect vacation takes patience, focus and great local connections. Who you know can often be more important than what you know, and this is certainly true when it comes to connecting our clients with interesting, creative and knowledgeable private tour guides. We pride ourselves on working with the best, and here are a few that we work with frequently:
Most of our travelers to France spend some time in Paris and Jennifer provides a very unique private guided tour experience for our Top Drawer Travel clients. Passionate about French culture, Jennifer shares insider's tips on the French people & their culture, their amazing food & unparalleled wines as well as history & architecture. The private tours are centered around the client's interests and at any given moment, can take another interesting turn. Whether you've been to Paris already or if its your first time, you'll have a new appreciation for Paris after a private tour with Jennifer.
Karen & Mike
Karen and Mike provide private guided tours for Top Drawer travelers visiting Venice, and their masterpiece is a Back Streets tour that should really, really not be missed while in The City of Bridges.
“Coming to Venice is an experience that will stay with you the rest of your life. From your very first glimpse of the wonder and sheer beauty of the city, you will be spellbound. You will want to get to know it, feel it, be immersed in it. Venice is a maze of streets and canals that can be very difficult to maneuver so join us as we show you the hidden Venice from an insider's vantage point.” - K.
Carmine (car-me-nay) is our go-to partner for private transfers, and private guided tours throughout Italy and Sicily. We've had a flawless relationship with him and his network of drivers and guides for many years now. All native Italians, their wealth of knowledge of the history, traditions and folklore of Italy promises to give you a unique experience and leave you with a lifetime of memories.
"Our private licensed drivers and guides, who speak several languages, will deliver the same personal care and attention we would give an old friend. We look forward to sharing with you the homeland we love and an intimate experience of all that Italy has to offer: breathtaking scenic drives, natural wonders, gastronomical delights, historical and artist treasures, and unique cultural events." - C.
When our Top Drawer Travel clients travel to the Netherlands we always make sure they have at least one private tour with Stefka, a native “Nederlander” and a tour guide equally at ease in the vibrant cities, or the soothing rural landscapes.
“We are proud of our small country. It has a colorful history, an on-going battle against the water, authentic villages and world changing inventions like the microscope, light bulb and compact disc. To complement this picture The Netherlands offers you a unique landscape with mind blowing skies and lush green landscapes.” - S.
Jon is our private tour guide in the Basque Country and Rioja Wine Region of northern Spain. A native of the region, Jon brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to our clients traveling in his land.
“One of the primary goals of our tour company is to offer itineraries that enable you to become a temporary Basque citizen instead of a tourist, creating educational and exciting tours that highlight the uniqueness and the culture of this fascinating corner of Europe called the Basque Country. Our knowledge of our homeland, our contacts, provider network and experience make us undoubtedly your choice if you decide to travel to the Basque Country & Rioja.” - J.
Steve and Laura
Steve and Laura take such good care of our Top Drawer travelers that we always recommend some quality time spent with them when visiting London and environs.
“We are a family owned and independently operated tour company, and my wife Laura and I are the chief tour guides. Combining the best of business practices and historic appreciation, with a dedication to personal service, we ensure our clients have the best possible historic experience in Merry Olde England.” - S. & L.
Gerard is our Ireland guide and his home grown knowledge of the Emerald Isle keeps travelers returning to his land year after year.
“As a lifelong resident of County Kerry, I have lived and worked in the midst of the visitors to Ireland as both a musical entertainer and trusted member of the Police Force of Ireland (An Garda Siochana). My passion for the culture, deep history, folklore and raw beauty of Killarney, County Kerry and Ireland, led me to create my own tour company. As fellow Kerryman and noted author John B. Keane said; 'Only in Kerry, with its magical retreats, can one experience such peace.' I want to share this unimaginably, amazing Land, that I am lucky enough to call home, with you." - G.
