Akita Tour

Introduction

Established in 1999 by a group of young professionals of tourism industry, AKITA Tour is a dynamic tour operator and travel agency located at the edge of Turin.

Created as a travel agency, over the years AKITA has increasingly focused its activities towards the incoming tourism, becoming a tour operator specialist in travels and holidays in Piedmont.

Following the professional interest we have developed a great passion and then a real love for our region.

Curiosity is our fuel and drives us constantly seeking new places, hidden but still fascinating. So we can offer to our clients a wide range of solutions, including both the most famous places in Piedmont and small pearls less known but truly amazing for every traveler.

From 2011 AKITA has increased its social and ethical commitment, developing projects oriented to accessible tourism.

Cooperation with dedicated authorities, associations and specialized operators helps us to constantly extend the offer intended to tourists with difficulties, especially with motor disabilities, even outside of our region.

Our efforts to be promoters of a really inclusive tourism brought us to obtain important rewards.

In November 2014, the Council for People with Difficulties of Turin awarded Rita La Torre, General Manager and Incoming Director of AKITA, the "Prize December 3", recognition for professionals that stand out for their commitment and results in support of people with disabilities.

Furthermore, from April 2013 Rita La Torre holds the office of President of Assoviaggi, the federation of tourism companies within the Confesercenti of Turin and Province, as a further evidence of the high regard earned by the company, not only with its customers but in the whole environment of tourism professionals.

Our mission

Always provide the best suited answer for the needs of our customers: this is our main target.

For the outgoing services we guarantee the widest range of products for every destination.

As incoming operators we aim to approach our customers to the real soul of Piedmont, by always putting ourselves in their shoes.

Passions such as culture, art, history, gastronomy and nature are the tools we use to promote our region, its territory and its traditions, and to support their respect and preservation.

The company mission can be therefore synthesized in few words: ethic, reliability, professional staff and high quality offer.
