The Tour Escorts are those who accompany individuals or groups on journeys across the whole of Italy and abroad to ensure the tour programmes drawn up by the organisers are put smoothly into effect. Tour escorts provide complete assistance to the escorted individuals or groups by providing additional information outside the remit of that of the Tourist Guides, as well as tips and historical details of interest to tourists in the transit areas. The information is given even for short journeys and on arrivals and departures.
