Meet your local cultural guide, driver-guide and host!
Don't compromise on your next European vacation, travel with me. I not only design your itinerary but lead each and every small group tour and private group tour. I am your local host, cultural guide, and driver-guide, from the moment you arrive to the moment you fly back home, taking care of the logistics and all the details on the ground while you relax and enjoy your vacation.
With me at your side, you will benefit from my lifetime of travel experience in Europe, local expertise and access to my insider knowledge. I will guide you through all the uncertainties of travel, be your translator with my multilingual abilities, take you on orientation walks, introduce you to the locals, steer you off the beaten path, assist you with "how things work", help you find just the right restaurant and share interesting stories and fun facts about the local culture. Travels with Audrey is much more than a business. It is my passion to provide you with a memorable travel experience, to help you connect with the everyday life, and enjoy the beauty of Italy and all it has to offer. You will feel safe and cared for the entire way, like traveling with a friend.
Audrey De Monte, CITM, CTG
Owner and Certified International Tour Manager
Born in New York City, to European native parents, and raised in Western Africa, I have studied, lived and worked on three continents (Africa, Europe and North America), and have traveled extensively throughout the world. Travel has shaped my life, who I am, and how I look at the world and travel continues to be my biggest teacher. Together with my native Italian husband, we speak 5 languages (French, Italian, German, Spanish and English of course).
I have spent a lifetime, since early childhood, visiting family, friends, studying, living and working in Spain, Germany, Holland, Italy and France. I grew up with the local customs and traditions of these countries. Every year, I continue to spend several weeks on scouting trips, exploring special places and meeting with local service providers, to ensure the best for my clients.
I possess over 35 years of experience in the travel and aviation industry, including leading tours in Canada, the United States and Europe. After retiring with 25 years from Air Canada, I obtained a certification in International Tour Management in 2012, and founded Travels with Audrey in 2015, doing what I am most passionate about, specializing in personally hosted unique private and small group tours in northern Italy. As one of my passions is travel photography, all photos and videos taken and on this site, have been taken by me on location.
