A delightful tour for the runup to the festive season. Visit Vienna to enjoy its artistic treasures and do your shopping in the city's famous Christmas Market. Wny not add a visit to Salzburg or Budapest?
Our Customized European Shopping tours are primarily scheduled for the off-peak months of November-February. The stores in Europe have two main 'Sales' periods each year; these take place in January and June, with the best bargains always to be found in January, when the stores clear their Christmas inventory, along with any remaining stock from the previous year.
Tours can be customized according to your party's needs. If you wish to concentrate on a particular type of shopping (fashion, homewares, art and antiques), we will design an itinerary which includes guided tours of the appropriate districts, plenty of free time for shopping, visits to discount outlets and trade sources, and a sightseeing programme of related visits, workshops and lectures.
We also offer delightful Christmas Lights Shopping tours in Europe and customised itineraries designed for groups of Antiquing Professionals, Collectors, Enthusiasts, and Individual Travellers
Whether you have been an enthusiast for many years, or are just starting to build your collection, you will enjoy the hunt for treasures throughout Europe. You can browse and buy from shops, markets, dealers and auctions, staffed by specialists willing to help and assist you to find pieces of many different periods and styles.
Wonderful collections of art and antiques can be seen in many great houses and museums. Our tours include visits to magnificent country estates and some private homes which are not usually open to the public. Many of them contain remarkable collections displayed in the domestic setting for which they were originally acquired.
The discriminating visitor will be offered a feast of top quality antiques, attractively presented by some of the very best European antique dealers. Furniture, fine silver, porcelain and glass, paintings, textiles and carvings, even garden furniture and statuary; items to suit every taste and budget.
Antiques fairs are held throughout the year, all over Europe, and we can design a tour incorporating the particular event your party wishes to attend. We offer a complete service where every facility can be arranged for your purchases, including packing, insurance, and overseas shipping.
All programmes are personalized for your party, and tours can be created for small groups and individuals as well as larger groups.
