Secret Tours is a small friendly boutique tour company offering small group tours and private excursions in South Italy, Sicily and Malta. We do believe that personal contact and first impressions are very important. We, at Secret Tours, all share a great passion for those unique countries. Between ourselves, we share a wealth of experience and various roles, ranging from Tour Operators to Travel Agency consultancies, to guided excursions, to coach trips. We have worked with major New Zealand, Australian and American large Tour Operators as tour managers particularly in Sicily and Malta where some of our staff are based. We take you to the places that we like visiting - All our tours are organised directly by us as we believe it is most important to guide you to make the right choice when choosing the right tour experience. All our tours are in a small group context (8-14 participants) giving a more personal touch and flexibility where needed. We want you to experience Italy and Malta as a local through unique experiences in contact with local people..this is what an experience of life is made of! We also leave some time each day for you to explore at your own pace so you can get a sense of how it is to live like a local. We all look forward to making your holiday in South Italy, Sicily and Malta a magical and unique experience! Arrivederci! Aldo
