While on the tour you’ll be able to see a full screen video of your guide and their surroundings, interact with them and other travellers through the live chat, see where you are in the world on a map and show your appreciation with a tip.

Why are they tip-supported?

We are running these tours on a tip-supported basis to make them as accessible as possible. They are free to book and join, but you have the option to tip the guide during the tour.

Leaving a tip will help support the guides and allow us to offer tours in more places around the world. If you aren't able to leave a tip, then it would be great if you can share the tour with friends and family to spread the word.

Merci bien Anne Claire! J’ai beaucoup aimé ton visite guidé d’Umbria. This was a great tour and I also loved your tour of the inside of the bank painted by Perugino at the height of his fame. Grazie mille! Tom G. Boston, MA, USA

If you love textiles this is an absolutely fascinating tour. Anne Claire guides us with real knowledge and love of the place. The process of the hand loom weaving is shown and explained by her and by the women working there. Unmissable.
