What is "Your Man in Europe"?
We are a unique tour organizing agency specializing in leading small groups of 8 to 12 on highly personalized tours in Europe, Great Britain, and Ireland. We offer the most imaginative and feature-packed travel adventures available anywhere ....Period.
This exclusive concept was introduced by Larry Ivy, a veteran European traveler and tour organizer since 1990, former resident of England, and owner-operator of the Texas-based independent travel agency, Your Man in Europe. Larry has developed a distinctive style of European travel. These very small group tours have proved enormously popular with adventure-seekers of all ages. He usually personally escorts the tours for the entire time, taking groups to delightful places that the big group travelers seldom or never get to see. His only concern is that you have the time of your life!

Please note: Our trips can be physically demanding, often reasonably active, and require a certain amount of “taking care of yourself”. We do not offer so-called “luxury” travel for the pampered sojourner. Luxury travelers are too often insulated from the flavor and charms of the very places they spend so much time and money to visit. Our guests have the opportunity to discover the essence of the places where we are welcomed as guests of other cultures.
Some of my happiest memories are of the trip you led to Italy. When I look back it was the absolute best.
Forget the usual stereotypes about exhausting holidays to Europe and prepare yourself for the complete Renaissance Man tour.
It was the many small touches that made our trip with Your Man In Europe so special. The delightful surprises sprinkled throughout the trip still bring warm smiles. Jan H
Thank you for another fantastic adventure. I scrolled through all my trip photos on the flight back, and was amazed at how much we saw and did.
I feel like I KNOW the places that
we visited, rather than just being
able to say that I was there. AND
WE HAD FUN! Always fun!
With Your Man in Europe, you have all the adventures of traveling but with a safety net.
No time is wasted and unique experiences are around every corner.
