What travelers are saying

"This was the first organized tour my husband and I have ever joined, so we were not sure what to expect , but it turned out to be the best vacation we've ever had. The scenery and food were amazing. We stayed in beautiful hotels. Most of the riding was on paved bike paths so we hardly ever had to deal with car traffic. Our leaders, Andrea and Martin, were funny, informative , and so helpful. We are already planning to go back to Italy with VBT this summer."

What travelers are saying

"A Culture Trip curated trip is a must for anyone burnt out planning their own trips or going to a remote or unfamiliar area. Having a local insider was the highlight of the trip. From the moment we landed to the moment we had to go through security to leave, we were completely taken care of. Our insider gave us great recommendations for restaurants and was very adaptable to any situation that arose."

Cultural Tour Selection Trips

  • Cultural tours are all about learning and gaining a deeper understanding. Be respectful and open minded.
  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions! Your tour will only be enhanced by the more you engage with locals and your guides.
  • Figure out what type of cultural experience you’re looking for. Are you interested in visiting a small, remote village for an intense, sometimes uncomfortable look at another way of life? Or are you interested in a more relaxed cultural experience, like a food tour in Italy
