MARIKA - Co-Founder

'I think traveling opens your mind. Learning about new cultures and meet other people it is always a positive experience'.  


I always had a real passion for travels. I had the chance to work for many years in one of the biggest Tour Operator in Italy before I moved to the States.  

I really enjoy planning trips for everyone who wants to discover novel places and have great local experiences. My enthusiasm took me to travel around the world and discover new countries, where I met great people! 


As Confucius said, ‘Wheresoever you go, go with all your heart’.

VALERIA - Licensed Tourists Guide in Rome, Italy

Everything in Italian culture and landscape is astounding for its beauty, meaning, history and for the hundreds of amazing stories that lie behind every corner and make sculptures, churches, palaces, parks and ancient remains incredibly alive and relevant to us. Rome, as the Eternal City, is a jewel in such a marvelous crown!

Valeria moved here from Florence and immediately fell in love with this extraordinary city. After working for a while as an archaeologist, a freelance researcher, and a scholar, ten years ago she decided to start a new adventure here as a tour guide to share the stunning beauty and magical atmospheres of Rome with people from all the world.

DANIELA - Lincensed Tourist Guide Lake Como District, Italy

My experience in tourism began in 1997 when I achieved the obligatory license as a professional Tourist Guide of Lake Como District. Thenceforth I have never stopped to work in tourism and my job has become a passion!

Lake Como is one of the most charming places in Italy, worldwide famous for its beauty, elegance, quiet and uniqueness; but it is also my Lake where I was born and raised;  my roots are in its water, beauty and, culture, I’ve always been feeling an indissoluble bond with it.

Every time I meet my guests I wish that they feel like locals, experiencing the most authentic Lake Como: boat tours, walking tours in the charming Como, visits of the elegant Villas with their lush gardens and rich interiors, of the typical lake towns like Bellagio, local wines and olive oil tastings, relaxing walks in full nature make your vacation unforgettable. Lake Como is indeed the perfect combination among art, culture, traditions and, nature.

I like a lot the words of Robin Williams about my Lake:  “When you look at the sky over Lake Como, it is clear that God exists.”
