Our Story

Behind Zitango is a family that lives and breathes travel, for 40 years! We love what we do and it shows in the care and attention we give to our customers. Our history starts with Ben, our founder, who started as a night clerk at a historic palace hotel in Pisa, Italy during college. Getting enchanted with the multicultural vibes of the travel & hospitality world, he went on study to become a licensed professional tour guide. And that love of new cultures turned into developing travel businesses in seven different countries, including Italy, Germany, the U.K., Turkey, Belgium, Netherlands, and finally here in the U.S. Ben’s passion for exploring new destinations and cultures through authentic travel experiences, in style and well-planned to the smallest detail, is now the guiding principle of the Zitango team for each and every customer.
