Italy's Amalfi Coast Caravan
Call Toll Free: 1-877-252-2154
For more than 20 years, we’ve seen large groups of travelers tour Europe in buses. But we noticed that there’s a sector of travelers who want to tour more independently and there were no agencies that offered this service. Our CLASSIC and SOFT Caravans include a CaravanConcierge (tour leader) from arrival to departure, a daily preprogramed GPS and a prepaid cell phone to reach the CaravanConcierge at any time. We tour with a minimum of eight and a maximum of twenty travelers.
So, we’ve moved away from the traditional bus tours by giving everyone their own car to use while exploring the country. Prior to departure, travelers receive a Road Book with all the applicable information of your destination, including maps, GPS coordinates of each and every place you visit, service vouchers, and driving details for the destination.
But don’t worry, we still provide our travelers with all the necessary safety features like pre-paid cell phones, a programmed GPS and even some travel books.
At Lark Tours your Amalfi Coast Convertible Caravan, gives you the flexibility to see, smell, touch, hear and taste the sights in Europe for yourself will create a more memorable and luxurious experience.
