These are the quality of hotels that we typically use. Due to the size of groups, some hotels may need to be adjusted

The selection is remarkable. The flavor is traditional. You feel you are given the unique opportunity to experience the lifestyle of the country you are visiting.

You feel you are not only a guest but participate in the everyday happenings.

You are transported into a belief that you are not the lonely traveler but the long ago relative coming back for a visit. 

As you can see, we make use of some of the most beautiful coaching inns, manor houses and quaint hotels for our tours. All of our hotels have been personally inspected by our dedicated Europe by Design staff on a regular basis. “We go where you go!”

While there are many choices in accommodations, we feel that staying in smaller inns gives you a more traditional and honest feel for the countries where you are traveling. Many of these places have been in existence for many hundreds of years and have continued in the fine tradition of inn-keeping that makes them an integral part of the success of our tours. We partner with these inns to make sure that your stay is the absolute best experience that it can be.

We continue to seek out new areas and inns and you are the beneficiary of that work. Only those hotels that meet or exceed our rigorous standards are used for our group travels. We are committed to providing you with the best value for your travel dollar. Come experience any one of our tours and you will see first hand the Europe by Design difference. You won’t be disappointed!
