THE GRAND TOUR (TGT) strives to capture the spirit of the classic cultural pilgrimage made by British and Americans who, beginning in the 17th century, wished to complete their educations by observing the great sites of the classical age and Renaissance in person.


This sojourn abroad—a movable feast of history, architecture, fine art, good food, and often general revelry—came over time to be known as THE GRAND TOUR.

We design custom tours of learning, culture, and pleasure to Europe and the US for private groups primarily from non-profit organizations. Just as The Grand Tour of old, these tours focus on aspects of art, music, history and cuisine, and are perfect for the independent-minded, inquisitive traveler. We promise a rich, rewarding experience with expert guides, deluxe lodging, fine dining, and plenty of free time.

To discuss your group's next cultural tour to Europe or North America, please contact us at 800.727.2995 or email us at info@thegrandtour.com
