Why Us

1. Passion for Italy

Chic and Unique Tours was set up by two old friends and tourism professionals united by their passion for travelling and exploring off-the-beaten-track places and for tasting the best local food and wines. Our aim is to spread the love for Italy, Sicily in particular, and their true essence.

2. Personal touch

Each tour has been planned by a team of travel experts, and we promise we’ll only recommend places we love ourselves. We’re honest about everything, so if that picturesque ancient castle gets a bit chilly at night, we’ll make sure you know before you set off. For extra advice and assistance, the Concierge team is always on hand to help – for free!

3. Provenance

All Chic and Unique Tours sites are UK based, so you can expect a knowledgeable and trustworthy British approach to your booking. We maintain strong communication with our team in Italy, and as members of the Association of British Tour Operators for Italy Agents (ABTOI) we adhere to the absolute highest standards in British tourism.
The fact that every location is personally hand-picked doesn’t limit the selection on offer, we always plan a personalized tour for our guests, meeting their budgets and requirements.

4. Quality

What sets us apart is the extraordinary quality of the places on offer and the people that you will meet when there. We believe that luxury is not just about money but about the experiences you will have. You will come back richer and inspired!

5. Services

We’re happy to arrange anything you need to perfect your stay. We can take care of everything from car hire to local activities and days out with local guides, your new friends.

6. Inspiration

The luxury of travelling Chic and Unique Tours is our dedicated and personal approach. With years of experience in the tourism sector, our aim is simple – to offer you an extraordinary and inspirational holiday and memories that will last you a life time, from a day spent with a fisherman in the Mediterranean, a picnic with donkeys on the slopes of a volcano, a dinner with a prince in his castle…..just ask!

7. Accessible Tourism

We are aiming to create packages and itineraries suitable to all people. We are selecting the best accessible hotels for all, and the ideal experiences and activities that are open to all, without any limitations. In particular, we are the champions for creating hearing-loss friendly community of hotels/restaurants/events/activities!

This is what our guests think

This is a superior tour company. My husband and I have never had a personalized tour before and Francesca and Giorgio anticipated our every need.The individual licensed guides for the UNESCO sites were very knowledgeable but Francesca and Giorgio were flexible enough that they added local nature preserves when they saw our interest. When they heard my uncle landed in Sicily in 1943 with American forces, they showed me where. Originally booked to see Montalbano sites, our time in Sicily was so much more from wine tastings to a cooking class and shared meal with a local family. Giorgio's driving skills and Francesca's translation were invaluableplus they were both a lot of fun to be with. I would use them for any tour in Italy of any size. We were just a couple but they could do tours for groups of friends or family reunions. I also feel we got not only great service but value with our meals and a wonderful B and B. A truly wonderful trip thanks to them.

Judy and Art Frigo from Chicago USA -May 2014

Chic and Unique Tours Ltd recently organised and managed the wedding of a great friend of mine in Italy. Every detail was arranged impeccably to an absolute fine art. Francesca Sanniti was always at hand to ensure that not only the Bride e Groom were content but also each and every guest. A fantastically well organised wedding, and therefore I would have no problem in recommending Chic and Unique Tours.

I'm sitting here in the villa in Tuscany. It's been a brilliant week. The villa is wonderful - and so homely. Francesa has been a wonderful host, organising interesting trips, picking us up, getting a great chef in and looking after us all. Thank you so much for a much needed holiday. x

Charlotte B., York England -March 2013

I spontaneously signed up for a relaxing holiday as I needed a vacation in between jobs. It was the perfect choice! Delicious food&wine, fantastic yoga and great company in beautiful surroundings. Every day started and ended with yoga lessons, and every other day we had fun activities (kayaking, wine tasting and hiking to the top of the volcano) and every other day we could relax at the pool or do excursions on our own. A big thanks to Francesca, Ameriga and my co-guests for an amazing holiday :)
