Our Philosophy

We believe one of the greatest benefits of travel is the people we meet and the relationships we form. Even the most familiar place becomes novel when experienced with new friends. At Miracolo Tours we strive to make each trip a meaningful and unique experience. Our trips are special because you're there.

We work to bring the world to you. We work to share knowledge and new experiences. We work to make sure every detail of your trip is perfect. But what sets us apart the most is our work to form relationships. We want to get to know you and we want to help you get to know one another.

If a common experience can foster a friendship, imagine the friendships that emerge from the incredibly uncommon experience of traveling the world together. We are a company that endeavors to make the world attainable. But, even more than that, we are a company that brings people together.


Our Story

Everyone should see the world.

With this conviction in mind, Peter Prager gathered a team of trusted friends who shared his belief. They met one day in a café just south of Central Park to discuss the beginnings of a big idea. They reminisced about their favorite trips, they recounted meals at their favorite restaurants in far-flung places, they discussed the trips they still wanted to take, and, ultimately, they strategized the best way to design a tour.

And so, Miracolo Tours was formed.

It was only afterward that Peter realized he had met each one of these friends through traveling. Our team is, appropriately, a product of the very experiences we hope to share with you and a perfect example of how important these experiences can be.
