Private Self-Guided Tours
Private Self-Guided Tours
We think travelling with a guide is one of the greatest luxuries a traveller can enjoy, but we also know that travelling independently - along with all its challenges - can also be great fun. 

A selection of our published itineraries can be run as Private Self-Guided Tours.

We can also develop customised itineraries, which meet your specific interests, and can also be self-guided.

For self-guided tours, Around The Sun manages the bookings, organises a number of special meals, arranges site guides where appropriate, produces trip notes and gives you introductions. As a bonus, our outstanding operators are on-hand if you need them in an emergency.

If a car is involved, you do the driving. Because ATS is not providing a driver, prices for Private Self-Guided Tours can be very competitive.

In some of the most spectacular parts of Italy, Around The Sun offers self-guided walking and cycling trips. We provide detailed walking notes and arrange comfortable accommodation in the villages along the route.

Cycling in Puglia - Off the beaten track in Southern Italy

Journey - at a perfect speed - through unexplored landscapes, past old stone churches, dramatic coastlines, quaint farms, trulli and oil mills still in use today just as they were centuries ago. The ravines and ancient ruins of Puglia tell the story of the many civlisations that have passed through this little known region - the Messapians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, Normans, Swabians and Aragonese rulers. Featuring the extreme south-east of Italy, this is Around The Sun's only tour in this little known region. And it's a gem!

Planning a Holiday?

Congratulations on finding Around The Sun! We’d love to talk to you about your next holiday adventure.

Around The Sun trips are based on the expertise and knowledge of Richard Everist and Lucrezia Migliore – and the expertise and services of a select group of friends who operate the best tour companies in the world.

Around The Sun showcases a careful selection of small group trips (with guides and expert leaders), and we design customised private journeys (both guided and self-guided).

All our suggested itineraries can be run privately, or customised, so the departure dates and itineraries completely suit you. Many of our itineraries can be adapted for those who wish to to travel completely independently. See Create Your Own Journey.
