and having your hotel move with you, there is nothing more relaxing

What makes I.T.S. Tours & Travel
different from other travel providers?
Ever since Dr. Michal Barszap, the
company founder and President, started arranging tours for his own
students to the former Soviet Union in the early 1970’s, his fame
spread among the university and high school teachers. At the time
when “Russia” was a scary word for many people, and when most travel
agents would not dare to arrange such “exotic” programs, or did not
know where to start, Dr. Barszap was a pioneer and did all
arrangements himself. Eventually he started doing this for other
professors and eventually this hobby evolved into a full-fledged
Since those early
days, Dr. Barszap and I.T.S. Tours & Travel have grown and now
are providing hundreds of guaranteed departure tours to all countries
of Europe. What makes them unique is that all of their travel
programs, whether for groups or individuals, are guaranteed to
operate, regardless of the number of people that sign up. What this
means to you? It means that you are going even if you bought the tour
a year in advance! Unlike others, we will not cancel any departures,
nor will we tell you that there are not enough people on your tour and
ask you to take another tour, perhaps at a different date. You will go
on the scheduled date, even if you and your companion are the only two
people signed up for the tour. That’s a solid guarantee from Dr.
All travel programs
arranged by I.T.S. Tours & Travel can be combined, mixed, added
to, etc. We feature not only escorted tours with guaranteed
departures, but also tours for independent travelers who like to have
the basics arranged in advance and plenty of free time to explore on
their own. For those people we have many hosted tours that combine
several cities, or even countries, where you get a package that
includes the hotel and maybe a city tour, as well as discounted
consolidator airfare. Then, if you wish, you can buy extra excursions,
transfers, theater performances, train tickets, sightseeing tours in
all or just some of the cities. The choice is yours. We arrange
whatever you want.
If you want a hotel,
we have a choice of up to 100 or more hotels in most cities for you to
chose from, from super deluxe to budget. If you want a private car
with a driver and a guide to show you around, or perhaps a private
museum tour, or a front-row ticket to an opera or a musical
performance, just let the experts at I.T.S. Tours & Travel know
and they will customize your individualized itinerary. Or you may
browse through our website and create your own customized travel
program. The choices are unlimited.
So, please browse
through this website, choose what you like and contact us. We will be
very happy to work with you in arranging a perfect vacation for you.
All of us at I.T.S. Tours & Travel, and especially Dr. Michal
Barszap, are looking forward to working with you. We are waiting.
