PRIVATE SHORE EXCURSIONS IN ITALY, FRANCE, BARCELONA & GREECE!

Experience the magic and wonder of the Mediterranean on one of our chauffer-driven excursions or private walking tours.

Papillon Service is a professional passenger transport company headquartered in Tuscany, Italy. We pride ourselves on having the highest standards of reliability, safety, comfort, convenience and personalized service. Our specialty is private shore excursions with experienced, English-speaking driver-guides.

We cover cruise ports in the countries of Italy and Greece, on the French Riviera (including Monaco), and in Barcelona.

We can also arrange simple transfers or day tours starting from any point on land. If you require a local guide for a walking tour, skip-the-line tickets to popular galleries, museums and attractions, or reservations at a winery or restaurant, we can organize those for you as well.

TO FIND YOUR TOUR

Here on the website you will find the most popular tours. If you don’t find exactly what you’re after we’d be happy to help you customize or create a service.

Cruise passengers may find the map the most convenient place to start. Otherwise you can search alphabetically by port, by geographic area or by area of interest.

TO FORM A GROUP

All service is private; we don’t put groups together but you are welcome to! Try posting something on the Cruise Critic roll call in order to form a group. Then you’ll get the best of both worlds — you’ll be in full control of the service AND you’ll spend less.

OUR VEHICLES

Our fleets feature late-model vans that hold up to 8 passengers and luxury sedans. For large groups we offer minibuses and private luxury coaches  for a more reasonable cost per person than the cruise line tours!.

OUR PLEDGE TO YOU

Whether it’s a transfer, a full-service shore excursion, or a multiple-day package from a hotel or villa, Papillon Service guarantees a quality service every time at the most competitive ethical rates.

All our tours are tours by locals! Our drivers and guides will show you the little corner of the Mediterranean they call home in a way that will enliven your senses and touch your heart. Let our expertise and the love of our terrain make your visit one of your best lifetime travel memories.
