Nose to eye with a cow
At Hand Crafted Travel we use our knowledge and experience — gained in over 30 years of traveling throughout Europe, California and the southwestern USA — and use it to craft the perfect trip for you, one-on-one.

If you appreciate the insight of an expert guide, but hate the idea of being stuck on a bus with 40 other people, take a look at our guided Small Group tours.

Prefer the adventure of independent travel, but need some expert advice from someone who's been there? Our Trip Planning service is perfect for you.

With the help of Hand Crafted Travel it's easy to be more than just a number in the herd.
Thank you so much for helping us with the details of our fabulous trip to Spain. We loved the plan you created for us -- like Hemingway and Orson Wells, we fell in love with Ronda. Flamenco at Casa de la Memoria brought tears to my eyes. We are indebted to you for pointing us to sites and directions we otherwise would have missed.

This trip was truly life changing. I feel like I know so much more about several other cultures and their lives and countries from this one trip. Bryan was awesome! I feel so educated because of him."

Bryan, your knowledge of Germany, familiarity with the customs and dedication to making this the absolute best tour we've been on since we started visiting Europe in 2000 was exceptional. We will definitely tour with you again in the future!"
John, Bakersfield CA
Once again you hit a home run with our vacation planning and we thank you!!! It was so time-saving to have advanced reservations and just be able to walk into the Accademia and the Uffizi and avoid the long lines! Our week long stay at the villa near Lucca was just beyond words. It was a great vacation, Bryan, and we thank you for helping make it so!!!"
Beverly, Dallas TX
Thank you for making our trip a once in a lifetime experience. The hotels, food recommendations, suggested itinerary and train travels that you provided really helped to make our trip such a wonderful experience! We really were able to do everything at our pace, and we strongly feel that we could not have gotten what we got out of our trip without your help.
