The Blue Walk: What We Do and Why
The Blue Walk is not a typical tour. We don’t emphasize the history and architecture one normally associates with traditional tours. That isn’t our passion. The serene surroundings of open sky and tranquil blue waters are.
More about experience, people, beauty. Less about dates, facts, history.
The Blue Walk is about experience, people, beauty and a touch of luxury. Our small group walking vacations take place in unique and undiscovered locations. We offer our guests the opportunity to enjoy leisurely, small-group walking vacations along beautiful coastlines, village squares and open spaces of Europe while staying at luxury boutique hotels and resorts. Each tour includes daily leisurely 1 hour to 1/2 day walks in some of the world’s most serene surroundings where you can look up into an open sky or gaze out at tranquil blue waters.
Hiking boots and backpacks are always optional at The Blue Walk, as we offer a unique blend of lovely walking trails, coastal meandering, and urban strolling. Travel at your speed, to places you’ve always dreamed of. We will show you France, Italy, Greece or England in a completely personal and unique way.

Jeannette and Suzy set a new high standard of travel. I joined the ArtWalk Greece in May, 2019, with 3 girlfriends, and left Greece with a whole new appreciation of seeing the world by traveling "at the speed of you." They are fabulous tour leaders, with a depth of knowledge of the local towns and sites that I have never before experienced. We did lots of things tourists would do (can you say blue dome on Santorini), but with an insider's special take, such as where to find the best gelato, gorgeous hand-made rugs, locally distilled essential oils, fabulous meals, and so much more. Even where to put your luggage on the ferry to make for ease of disembarking. We always felt like we were so well taken care of. We did lots of walking and art-making (with our fabulous instructor MaryBeth Shaw of StencilGirl!) and I am looking forward to another BlueWalk in the future!"
What a great way to get exercise and see the most incredible coast of the French Riviera with guides that cater to every personality and whim! My husband and I will definitely be on another Blue Walk in the near future. Thank you Suzy and Jeannette for an amazing experience!

As an artist instructor with The Blue Walk, I have worked closely with the company and can testify to the care that they put into their trips. ...Their bucket list destinations are worth flying to Europe for. A Blue Walk tour is guaranteed to be a peak life experience - don't miss it!
I recently attended The Blue Walk Italy tour with three friends. Having never been to Italy we all wanted a different experience other than the usual tourist sites and we found it on The Blue Walk. Their motto of "travel at the speed of you" is right on. We all had a fabulous time and we each got to experience Italy at our own pace. The fabulous owner/guides, Suzy and Jeannette, thought of every detail from wine tastings, group dinners, fun gatherings and really great hotels. I felt that we were always in good hands. I would not think twice about sending any of my clients with The Blue Walk. I can't wait to travel with them again.
You both outdid yourselves to make sure my trip was perfect - which it was!!!
Thank you for all the love and caring - it was was one of the best trips I've ever taken.
Absolutely loved it and would do it again. People were all great and interaction was fun. I wasn’t sure how I would feel about have a tour guide but you guys and Carlo enhanced the experience. Usually by the last day of a trip I’m ready to return home. That was not the case on this one. I still wish I was in Nice. Thank you again!!
A highlight for me was being with a group of like-minded people from all walks of life and areas of the world.
I have to say that it was the trip of a lifetime! Thank you for this magical tour that had me thinking I needed to be pinched every step of the way. It was unreal in the best way possible!
I had such an amazing trip and you have a blue walker for life. I love these trips….
Loved every minute of it. I wouldn’t change a thing.
Thank you for a truly educational immersion into Greek antiquity and present Greek life; you offered wonderful walks balanced with free time to shop, relax by the pool or in the Aegean Sea, or to converse with the great members on our trip.
Thank you for your excellent planning!
I was just thinking of you two. I had such an amazing trip and you have a blue walker for life. I love those trips. Seeing as I can’t find my way out of a convenience store parking lot, I love the fact that you help me get to where I need to be, including the local hospital. Truly great memories.
