How did HOT Get Started?
Hands On Travel originated out of the passion to travel and experience new things in life. Founder, Terry Giansanti, dreamt about living in Europe after graduating from Gallaudet University. In 1999, he moved to Rome to work for the Italian Deaf Olympic Committee. Once he arrived in the Eternal City, he found it very difficult to leave. Giansanti wanted to ensure that all future deaf travelers to Rome and to Italy would be able to enjoy it to the maximum by having an insider to be their sign language guide. And the rest is history!
