Arts & Crafts Tours offers personalized tours to sites and countries where the best work of 19th century architects and artists still exists and where new work is being created. We also offer tours that examine the past in order to help us understand the present – and we would like to have you join us. Take a short virtual tour through our site and then we hope you’ll join us on a real tour.
Many of our current programs are offered in conjunction with museums, architectural, preservation and other cultural organizations, they are usually open to the public. If you are looking for something special, we are happy to prepare an itinerary for individual travelers, or to develop a specialized, escorted tour for small groups of from 6 – 12 people that will be designed to satisfy specific interests.
As seasoned travel providers, we know the standards that our (mostly American) travelers need and have come to expect. And you have not only the most knowledgeable guides, but you also have a variety of guides each of whom will spend a half day, a full day or a couple of days with the group which guarantees that there will be ample time to chat with them over lunch or dinner or drinks. This greatly enhances the experience and the knowledge you gain by traveling with us.
We combine this with the wealth of expertise, insight and local knowledge offered by the insider awareness provided by our many local guides and experts.
If none of these fit your schedule, the brief descriptions of our past tours may provide inspiration for what we could plan for and with you. As with any hand tailored item, a tour planned by Arts & Crafts Tours is one of a kind. We believe when you have read what we do and looked at what some of our past participants have said, you will see why we pride ourselves on tours that cater to travelers with discerning tastes and a keen intellectual curiosity – tours for those who want to combine luxury with learning.
