Beppe Salerno, the Founder of Tourissimo, and Ride & Seek founder Dylan Reynolds go back 20 years to their days as bike tour guides in Italy.

“Our companies specialize in very different things, with Ride & Seek focusing on culturally-focused multi-week tours and Tourissimo more of a soft adventure specialist,” Reynolds said.
