European Architecture Tour: Exclusive Guided Walks

Each one of our European guided tours are tailored to suit each booking. Guided architectural tours in Europe are exclusive to each of our Clients.

It is not possible for bookings to be joined – we tend not to cater for one or two people requiring a spontaneous tour. Visits are almost always arranged in advance for groups.

Should you be planning an office trip, a conference, or university trip in Europe please contact us and we would be happy to take your booking.

European Walking Tours

The European Architecture Tour can be an introduction to the city’s main buildings or can be tailored to your group’s architectural interests. For some European cities we can also arrange a bus tour, though in larger cities like London and Paris we frequently use the metro system. Cycling is a popular alternative, especially in failry flat cities like Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
