Tailor your tour

Can't make it to one of our group tours? Have a special request? No problem. A custom art tour is perfect for anyone who would like a personalized experience. Here are just a few ideas for custom tours:

  • Focus on a specific type or style of art
  • Incorporate food, drink, or a wine tasting
  • See a printing demonstration at the Palace Press (this is super cool)
  • Visit a local artist studio overlooking the historic Plaza
  • Add a private museum tour to your route
  • Gallery and artist introductions for collectors
  • Meet with an artist or enjoy an artist demonstration
  • Handicap accessible museums/galleries
  • Educational, curriculum-oriented tours (a perfect activity for homeschoolers!)

Custom tours generally start at $100 plus tax per tour hour. Please send us a message with your interests and dates of travel, and we will get back to you shortly with some custom tour options and pricing. 

Please note: We always do our best to accommodate every tour request, but because it often takes additional time to research and create custom tours, and because availability may be limited, please try to submit your request at least a week before your desired tour date.


Elaine is knowledgeable and personable, and provided an excellent tour of our prearranged itinerary, including arranging visits to museums and private introductions at Canyon Road galleries of special interest to us. Elaine took the extra steps prior to our arrival to research and prepare handouts for us concerning certain pottery artists.

We had a wonderful time on the tour. Elaine not only customized the tour to meet our needs, but she also set the pace according to our comfort level once we were all together. The tour was a good blend of history, art, and local culture. We felt as though we saw hidden gems that we never would have even known to seek out on our own. Our kids really enjoyed seeing the printing press and doing the art appreciation exercises. It got them (really, all of us) to look at art in a new way. Plus, her recommendations for other galleries, stores and restaurants to visit were very much appreciated! We will definitely be in touch if we return to Santa Fe.
