Difference between Driver-Guides & Tour-Guides
In Italy there is a difference between a driver-guide and a tour-guide and they both require different licenses.
ISD provides services with driver-guides ( or tour guide-drivers ) who are professional, experienced and fully trained chauffeurs that granted all the requirements to lead special vehicles into the main Italian and European cities.
Furthermore, each driver is also trained to learn basic notes of the Italian history to improve ISD service by giving all passengers information about the sites you are visiting.
A driver-guide can also recommend you which sites to visit and how to get access to them. A driver-guide cannot neither explain you the history of the sites from outside the vehicle nor walking with your inside the monuments.
ISD can also provide licensed tour-guides ( or walking tour-guides ) who attended special courses that allow them to enter monuments and museums with a group of visitors.
The city tour guide can explain you the history of the sites, all the little details and walk around the cities with you.
If you wish to hire a city tour guide in addition to your driver-guide, ISD can provide it for you upon request at an extra charge.
