History & Passion

With a dream to provide unique, personalized & independent tours of Italy...

In 1998, Ciao Tours was launched in Canada with a dream to provide unique, personalized & independent tours of Italy. We discovered a niche in the market which the large tour companies where not meeting. The age of following an umbrella with fifty people you did not know was slowly coming to an end.

The Italian partners wanted clients to experience the small family run farms called Agritourisms, the local guides in Rome, Siena, Florence & Venice, to enjoy a cooking lesson with an Italian family. They wanted to immerse our clients into the hospitality, culture and beauty of their country, Italy!

Ciao Tours started with humble beginnings, but has grown to include staff in both countries; an office located in Calgary, AB and dedicated Travel Agents throughout North America.

Our Passion for Italy has remained constant for the last 18 years, and we are still discovering new and interesting places, activities, and accommodations for our repeat clients and new clients as well.

Ciao Tours has grown because of the experiences of our past clients. Their recommendations to friends and family is invaluable and is the cornerstone of Ciao Tours longevity.
