Private Tours

As well as organising Art History in Focus escorted holidays, Siân also leads exclusive private tours for groups of friends and individuals. If you are planning a trip consider exploring the artistic treasures of great cities with a private, specialist guide at your side, as in the days of the Grand Tour.  Siân has accompanied over 150 cultural tours in the capacity of a lecturer throughout Europe as well as further afield. She has also worked for a number of independent travel companies, and often leads tours for members of The Arts Society/Nadfas, the Royal Academy and other arts organisations.

The advantage of a private guide means that you can go at your own pace and leave the organisation of your daily itinerary up to Siân. We will, wherever possible, make advance bookings to avoid queuing, arrange meals in excellent, colourful local restaurants and book concert and opera tickets if required. We will also introduce you to some of the hidden delights of towns and cities as well as well-known favourites. Simply let us know when you are planning to travel, then leave it to us to put together a daily itinerary for you. It couldn’t be simpler! 

Siân regularly arranges bespoke tailored tours for American customers wishing to visit Europe. Click here for a sample itinerary and testimonial from some of our American clients. We can arrange tours in Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, France and the UK. We also run private guided tours of London galleries such as the National Gallery, The Wallace Collection, Tate Britain and many more.

If you would like us to arrange a private tour or require further information, please send us an email or call on +44 (0) 1932 267322. Art History in Focus escorted holidays are fully bonded by ATOL. We would be delighted to assist you and look forward to hearing from you.

A HUGE thank you - you gave us all such a really wonderful trip (in fact Nicholas & Angela rang and said it was the best trip they have ever done!), the excursions were totally marvellous, and you then managed to get us into special places as well … and all the restaurants too, so thank you so much for making it a trip to remember for ever.”
