Traveling to Italy and looking for a great tour company? It’s a smart move. Major tourist destinations can feel overwhelming, and large group tours offer a very impersonal experience. So, whether you’re headed to Italy solo, as a couple, or with a family, a small tour group is ideal — and for our money, Through Eternity Tours reviews all the major destinations with unique experiences you can get anywhere else.
A Top Global Destination
Italy has long been one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world. Its history, art, architecture, and food have drawn visitors from around the world for generations. Now that travel restrictions are being lifted, many people are thinking about visiting Italy once again.
Fortunately, Through Eternity Tours is offering unique experiences for travel fans who are heading to Italy, and those staying at home. The company was born more than twenty years ago after president and CEO Rob Allyn took one too many disappointing tours and decided there must be a better way. Rob set about bringing together a crack team of professional, English-speaking guides and global travel experts to offer visitors to Italy a richer, more satisfying experience.
Through Eternity offers “skip the line” access to major landmarks, and only allows a limited number of people on a tour — often under 10– and that includes the guide. This makes it easier to navigate through crowded tourist destinations, and you’re always able to hear what the guide is saying. Best of all, the price is competitive with the huge tour groups, even though the experience is much more enjoyable.

Live In-Person Virtual Tours
Now, Rob and his team are bringing their brand of uniquely engaging cultural experiences to you with their online tours of Italy.
The virtual tours are online real-time presentations led by expert guides. Combining videos, high-definition photos and more, the guides share their wealth of knowledge and experience on interactive walkthroughs of some of Italy’s most fascinating sites. The live format of the virtual tours allows you to interact with your guides in real-time and ask your guide all sorts of questions, just like on a normal tour.
Through Eternity Tours is offering a 25€ (roughly $30) coupon with each virtual tour. A ticket for the vast majority of the scheduled virtual tours will run you 20€ (roughly $24). That means Through Eternity Tours is offering a free future ticket to any of their 50+ scheduled virtual tours. In addition, as a sign of gratitude to those who are on the front line fighting the coronavirus, Through Eternity Tours is offering all first responders, health workers, and NHS workers to join their virtual tours for free. Contact their office staff directly if you think you qualify.
The two most popular virtual tours are St. Peter’s Basilica Virtual Tour Part I: The Rise of Christianity and Constantine’s Church and Venice Carnival Virtual Tour: Pageantry and Tradition in the Serenissima. The St. Peter’s Basilica tour delves into the fascinating history of the extraordinary church. While the Venice Carnival Tour explores the color, sound, and spectacle of the floating city’s annual celebration of its special spirit.
From these two tours alone, you can see the wide range of experiences Through Eternity Tours reviews, and this is only the beginning. There are nearly 50 more to choose from!
FREE Talks & Walks
Through Eternity Tours also offers a wealth of free content for anyone interested in Italian history and culture. If you are not subscribed to their Youtube channel, you need to do so right now.
They offer entertaining and engaging tour videos through their TE Walks series, and for those who want to dig a little deeper into Italian History, they also have an educational podcast series called TE Talks. One of the highlights of their youtube channel is an incredible bicycle tour that retraces the path pilgrims took through the Vatican City on their way to St. Peter’s Basilica.
SIDE NOTE: Their in-person tour of the Vatican let’s you into St. Peter’s Basilica before it’s open to the public. A true treat for any tourist.
