Let us arrange a private or custom architecture tour for you! An experienced and knowledgeable CAF docent can take you on an existing tour or create a tour based on your interests. These tours are perfect for anyone looking for a more exclusive experience. Depending on how you would like to view the city, we can offer private tours in the morning, afternoon or evening. Lead time varies from three days to two weeks, depending on tour and docent availability, so please contact us in advance to discuss what kind of experience you are seeking.

Private and custom tours are intended for small, intimate groups of up to six people. Planning for a group of more than six people? Visit our Group Tours page.
