Art Excursions, Inc.


This service is perfect for travelers who appreciate the value of having detailed advice from professionals and scholars that is customized to suit their own specific needs.

In general clients who commission this service do so for one of two reasons:

  1. 1)They see the value in an expert-led fully guided itinerary to one of the destinations we feature on our “upcoming tours” page but would prefer to explore the destination independently.

  2. 2)They have a desire to experience a destination that is not listed on our “upcoming tours” page (for example, a destination outside the U.S.).

Because Art Excursions combines expertise in designing and leading fully guided tours with extensive independent travel experience worldwide, we are ideally positioned to provide tour consulting.

We work with our tour consulting clients to determine their interests, priorities and expectations in order to deliver a fully customized tour program. Our programs include detailed recommendations concerning:

  1. an ideal itinerary

  2. where to stay

  3. transportation options

  4. what venues and experiences are not-to-be-missed

  5. how long to plan for each venue/experience

  6. what venues make sense to combine in terms of logistics and scope

  7. what temporary exhibitions are not-to-be-missed

PLUS our tour programs include the following additional features:

  1. detailed written commentaries about each venue/experience

  2. written scholarly interpretations about must-see works of art at museums

  3. written scholarly commentaries about specific monuments, public art, architecture, gardens, special exhibitions, natural wonders, wildlife, etc.

Our independent travels have taken us to the top of 1,000 foot dunes in the Namib Desert to caves in New Zealand and from the bottom of the Grand Canyon to the top of Sydney’s Harbor Bridge. We draw on our own personal experience in researching and traveling independently in areas including but not limited to:

  1. American and Canadian cities (i.e. New York, Montreal, New Orleans)

  2. American and Canadian national parks (i.e. Banff, Jasper, Acadia)

  3. European countries (i.e. Greece, Italy, France, Germany, Spain)

  4. African countries (i.e. Botswana, Namibia, Zambia, South Africa)

  5. The Middle East (i.e. Egypt, Turkey and Jordan)
