Art Excursions, Inc.

 

Art Excursions is an important resource for museums, businesses, associations, clubs, and other organizations that offer group tours for members, customers, clients, employees and/or friends.


We are experienced in designing, implementing and hosting customized group tours in The United States, Canada and Europe. We offer everything from an hour-long guided walk or lecture to a multi-day all-inclusive itinerary.


For groups requesting a custom tour for a destination of their choice we charge a non-refundable tour proposal fee that varies depending on the location and duration of the tour. We proceed by interviewing our group contact in order to determine interests, priorities and expectations. We then research and prepare a detailed proposal tailored to the group. This proposal will include pricing, recommendations for venues, special exhibitions and accommodations, plus a working itinerary.


Step-on guiding service in The United States, Canada and Europe is also available for groups who prefer to plan their own itinerary and make their own arrangements for transportation, accommodations, admissions, etc.


Please see six sample case studies below.
