Roots

Private Access Journeys is the newest member of the Idyll family of travel services. With over 40 years of experience in European travel and a deep tradition of high-level personal service, we are eager to share our insider knowledge of Europe. We have developed a large network of contacts and are intimately familiar with Europe, down to the smallest side streets of its biggest cities.

We will bring you to Europe not simply as a tourist, but as an extended member of our family.

Service

Private Access Journeys is a proud supporter of the Untours Foundation, which works to alleviate poverty by providing low-interest loans to individuals and organizations who create employment, economic opportunities and valuable goods and services in economically challenged communities.

We are proud to bring you personally curated vacation experiences in Paris and Florence while giving back to our community, locally and globally.

Paola

Experience Coordinator,
Florence

Paola brings over two decades of Florentine experience to her engagement with each guest, crossing languages and cultures fluidly. She is well connected to the city’s better and lesser known sights. A proud native Italian, Paola says “Italy—and especially Tuscany—has so many wonders, you could return 100 times and still be delighted with something new.”
