Discovery Tours Limousine Service Italy

Chauffeur/Guide

Our well-educated and professional chauffeur/guides are fully licensed to drive a vehicle classified as public transportation (our limos.) Ordinarily, one of our chauffeurs/guides speaks more than one foreign language and has an in-depth knowledge of Italian history and art. Some chauffeurs/guides are also licensed tour escorts or local guides. While English-speaking drivers are fairly common in most cities, English-speaking chauffeurs/guides aren’t as easy to find. The difference between an English-speaking driver and a chauffeur/guide is seen in the depth of intellect and knowledge provided to you by him/her.

Chauffeur/guides are professionally trained to ensure that you get what you are looking for in the way of culture, fun, historical sights, museums, landscapes, restaurants, and whatever else you may want out of your excursion. The amount of information provided by one of our chauffeurs/guides will be more thorough and personalized to your particular interests than what would be offered by an English-speaking driver. However, in many European cities, a chauffeur/guide may not be allowed to guide tours through major churches and museums where such explanations are restricted to local city guides (WG). A chauffeur/guide is ideal for you if you are not familiar with the place you’re visiting and you want to see as many sites as possible in a the amount of time you have, whether that be a half-day or a full-day. One of our tours will be perfect for you if you want a designed, perfect itinerary for yourself without going into extremely time-consuming and deep details at every place you visit. A chauffeur/guide’s range is not limited to one city, but will be able to provide information concerning various Italian and/or European cities, as opposed to a local guide, whose knowledge is very thorough but indeed limited to only one city.

English Speaking Driver

Our English-speaking drivers are all very experienced and accustomed to hosting foreign tourists, as well as exceptionally familiar with the sights you will undoubtedly want to visit. If during your pre-cruise research you have made a list of “must-sees” for any given port, our drivers will gladly take you wherever you may want to go. If by chance, however, you did not have the time or inclination to “do your homework” before travelling, our drivers will design an itinerary that includes all the highlights. All our drivers speak English and give general historical and art information according to their knowledge while entertaining the clients with a commentary during the itinerary. Drivers are not allowed, by an agreement with the labor union, to enter monuments, museums or churches.

Tour escort Guide

A tour escort guide is training to be a guide but does not yet have the license. Their services are actually the most requested for the reason that most are still in school and study frequently and thoroughly. They give you more or less the same information as the professional guides would. They speak English and are well mannered; however, due to strict Italian laws and regulations that protect officially licensed guides, our tour escorts and driving-guides can explain the sights only from inside the vehicle but are not allowed to do so once out. For this reason, their services cost less than licensed tour guide services do.

City Guide (or Specialized Guide)

City Guides are specialized and licensed to guide in one specific city or limited area. Local culture, history and traditions are so different from area to area—even from city to city—that no single guide can possibly become as highly knowledgeable about a whole country or region as a specialized guide is about his/her area of expertise. Therefore, many local governments have chosen to assure the integrity of the local culture by licensing only those who have had a formal education and have proved to be knowledgeable and qualified to represent their area or city. Tours conducted by city guides are commonly very intense and exceedingly detailed.
