We consider heritage to be a valuable resource from which we can learn new things whilst having a good time.  Our visits combine expert knowledge with good humour in equal measure. We hope to offer our customers an experience that they will not forget.  We aim to redefine the concept of tourist services, always keeping quality and customer satisfaction as our main objectives.

Visit our website for the services we have to offer:

We also offer services to other companies and public institutions, ranging from specifically-designed audio guides, publicity materials such as panels or brochures, to the design and development of educational visits.

Cool-Touring was founded by two partners, although it relies on various associates and advisors from several different fields.
