European Small Group Tours

Our small group tours are planned at a slower travel pace, always focusing on one geographical area or region. This is because – we want to show more! Take you beyond the main tourist attractions, on a destination discovery journey through amazing local experiences and stays at upscale, locally owned, authentic hotels. Each tour is led by our passionate Vagabonda hosts, joined by licensed local guides to visit those amazing historical sites and learn about them from an expert and from their unique, local point of view. The maximum guest count on our tours is 12. We want to keep it small and intimate, as we explore in the comfort of a modern Mini Van or Mini Coach. Anyone can join! We always have a combination of solo travelers, couples, mothers and daughters/sons, friends… If you are a nice human being of any age - who likes to really enjoy life and wants to discover destinations deeply, in a fun way, and in good company, you will love our tours! We are excited to meet you!

Pete and Paula's trip to Italy - Vagabonda Travel

- Pete and Paula, Lindenhurst, New York

When my husband and I started planning our 30th Anniversary trip to Italy we had no idea where to even begin. That’s when I stumbled across Alida’s TikTok videos. I absolutely LOVED her content. To be honest, at first I was skeptical about planning a trip like this off of someone I saw in a TikTok video, but after meeting with her we knew we picked the right travel agency. Our 17-day trip was absolutely incredible. Alida and Vagabonda Travel made our lifetime dream of touring Italy one we will never forget!    

Happy 30th Anniversary to Us! A TRIP OF A LIFETIME!
