Hand Crafted Tours to Europe

Too many tour companies just resell packages or create copy-cat itineraries based on existing tours without putting any thought or research to try make a more enriching tour.

Our tours are created from scratch. We investigate the less explored and off-the-beaten path places in Europe. All the restaurants, hosts, sights and hidden corners of these countries are handpicked. We are constantly looking for and finding new things to incorporated into next year’s tours.  

What’s Included In Our Tour Price

All small group tours include tour guides, transfers, transport by car or van, lodging and entrance fees. All tours include a variety of special dinners & lunches, many with wine -- please see specific tour itinerary pages for all the details.

Some activities listed as optional on the itinerary (such as horse riding or kayaking) are not included in the price. Airfare to/from Europe is not included.

What our Guests Have to Say

““The trip was a grand success!!! Folks really enjoyed both Slovenia and Croatia and are grateful to you for encouraging us to include Slovenia in our trip. All the logistics, transportation, lodging, guides etc came off without a hitch. The stay in Hvar was in particular spectacular – the pension we used was perfect. The owners were fantastic hosts and provided us with a Croatian seafood dinner on our last evening on Hvar. It may have been the best dinner of the trip! ”
