Blue Walk Small Group Walking Tours
The Blue Walk walking tour vacations bring you to some of Southern Europe’s most beautiful destinations. Our small group walking tours are leisurely paced so you can experience where your feet are. No need to spend your time stressing about an overly packed itinerary. Don’t fear having to put in a minimum number of miles. You’re on vacation! Enjoy the open sky, walk along tranquil bodies of water, and share lots of good times. Traveling solo? You are welcome with us, and our single supplements are modestly priced.
Less about history, dates, and architecture. We are more about people, place, and traveling at a slower pace. Our Blue Walk small group walking tours have a maximum of 12-14 guests. Feel like your are traveling with a fun group of friends, not just a random tour.
ArtWalk Art Workshop Vacations
Our ArtWalk workshop vacations are based on Blue Walk itineraries with the addition of welcoming and inspiring art programs. Our talented and engaging artist-teachers take students of all levels through dreamed-of destinations. Most classes are on-site – sketch in a sun-soaked Italian piazza, paint the myriad of blues found looking over Greece’s Aegean Sea, capture the perfect pastry found in a Parisian cafe. Experience the place you are visiting!
Still small group tours, ArtWalks are a great place to meet fellow travelers while cultivating your creative side and exploring the world. Your Blue Walk guide is there throughout to create a carefree vacation. First time European travelers and budding artists love the safe, supportive, and welcoming atmosphere found on our ArtWalks.
