Custom Tours for Groups

We would like to help you plan a custom tour of our region. Here are some suggestions for companies, organizations, and professional societies.

We offer many resources to help your group. Activities like team planning, decision-making, and problem solving often benefit from an offsite perspective and outside support. Our team partners with yours to design and deliver a retreat experience that works with your interests, needs, and outcomes. These could be clarifying future actions, discovering solutions to tough problems, assessing action on new opportunities, or simply building team spirit through a “getaway” experience.

We offer guides and facilitators who are experts in history, architecture, and the arts to help you plan and enjoy your visit to this historic region. Email us at to discuss your tour interests and goals.
