Tuscan Secrets is our specialist Italian brand.

We offer a unique choice of holidays to Italy, with a special emphasis on holidays to Tuscany and the Tuscan island of Elba. We like to focus on smaller, family owned properties.

We can organise a completely bespoke trip for you, where everything from the hotel to your daily activities can be tailored to meet your specific requirements. We will work with you to find out exactly what you want before suggesting anything to you.

Why not join us on one of our popular escorted small group tours? We run several a year, and they suit a range of interests and tastes from wine tasting to music and theatre. Read on to find out more.

Tony’s excellent customer service was matched only by his wealth of experience about everything Italian. His advice and help was invaluable in helping us choose our holiday. It was one of the best holidays we have been on. Thank you, Tony.

Escorted Small Group Tours

Throughout the year, we operate a number of escorted small group tours. Each of these takes a minimum of 12 people and a maximum of 16-20 people for around 7 nights in Italy. They tend to be special interest tours. We always include:

  • Flights with British Airways from London Heathrow;
  • All transfers in Italy;
  • Home pick-up and drop-off from selected locations in Hampshire, Berkshire and Surrey; and
  • Daily evening meals with 2 glasses of wine and 500 ml mineral water per person.

Home Pick-Up And Drop-Off

You can see our home pick-up and drop-off region on the map to the left (please click to enlarge). If you live just outside the border, please give us a call. We will do our best to make arrangements for you, but this cannot always be guaranteed.

For those who don't live within this area, we can offer overnight accommodation at Ascot Priory for around £30 per head, subject to availability. This includes free parking for the duration of our stay in Italy.

If interested, please mention this when you book with us and we will check to see whether there is any availability for you at the time of your booking.
