Travel Tours

Art House Tours are a unique opportunity to experience and understand art in the settings for which it was created. Our carefully selected destinations are culturally rich, affordable and hospitable, and they offer comfortable accommodations and the best possible transportation. A full schedule of lecture tours is planned with enough leisure time to indulge personal interests. We strive to provide a full range of cultural experiences, including museums, galleries, private homes and collections, religious institutions, and opportunities to participate in local cultural events. We will visit not only the most important sites, but out-of-the-way, unexpected museums, churches, and restaurants that can make a tour magical.
