David McGuffin's Exploring Europe, Inc. BBB Business Review

All our Italy tours feature visits to the big tourist attraction such as the Colosseum, Forum, Vatican, and museums in Florence.  However, it is the small villages and off-the-beaten-path destinations that usually win over the hearts of our travel partners.  This, added with our gourmet dining, fine wine tastings, and David’s personal relationships with the local people help our Italy tours receive five-star ratings from all who travel with us.  Your Adventure Start Here!

 David plans, designs and leads tours to many  European destinations.  Please contact us if you do not find a specific tour, destination or departure date here that meets your needs.  We frequently add new destinations and departure dates and your input would be greatly appreciated.

David’s tour ran very smooth. Great hotel rooms with breakfast each morning. He gave informative tours of the cities and areas we visited and then we had time on our own to visit in more detail or go shopping (my favorite activity anywhere). David was happy to stop along the way for photo opps and rest stops. We did check out some new sites with him. Each day was an adventure filled with great food, wine, and sites. Loved every moment of the trip. Planning next adventure with him now. -Elizabeth, Orange Park, FL

Enjoyed each meal, never thought about beans being a breakfast food before now have once a week. My best memory of dinner was taking a private boat to go have dinner on my birthday, this was another WOW day for me. – Dianna, Pensacola, FL

Dianna- The Tuscan Villa Vacation

Probably my most favorite part of the tour – having someone else pick the restaurant!! Usually when I go to Europe with my husband we wander around in circles for a prolonged amount of time studying menus and trying to find the “perfect” place. Tedious and exhausting. It was so nice to just have the perfect restaurant already picked out. I know this is not an easy task to try to accommodate multiple people’s picky food preferences, so hats off to Dave for being up to the challenge. And every meal I had was delicious!! Dave knows what he’s doing. –Diana, Seattle, WA

I’d like to add that possibly our group had just too good of a time! Our small group really enjoyed every minute and had an absolute blast with Charlotte. We just laughed and had fun everyday. While that makes for a fantastic vacation…it does make the ‘re-entry’ to normal life just painful. – THE ESSENCE OF IRELAND Fall 2015


We were on our tour in 2008 and still talk about how much fun we had every time we get together. The “picnic” in Greve after the wine tasting is also very memorable. With a little information from David, we were able to stay after the tour and made our way to Orvieto where we also had a really nice time. The whole trip has so many memorable moments – every day was something special.

Every tour that I have ever taken with David has been outstanding. I have been traveling with him for ten years now. My last trip was great as well. David is top notch. I would not travel abroad with anyone else

Whether you are a seasoned traveller or are considering Europe for the first time, David McGuffin should be your first choice. You will not be satisfied with any other.
