International network
Guiding Architects is an international network for architectural guided tours. Our members are independent companies, which offer professional tours in the region or city where they are based. During the tours, current architectural developments, urban contexts, social and political backgrounds and many other issues are presented in an enjoyable and informative way.

High quality tours
The programmes are organized by our local member companies. Being based in the countries where they organize the tours, they have excellent connections to the local architectural scene and can recommend the best places and projects to visit. This is what distinguishes the members of guiding architects from other tour organizations. Reservations for transport, accommodation and restaurants are also part of our service.

Professional background in architecture
All our guides have a professional background in architecture. They have extensive knowledge of the building culture in their country, from construction process to planning politics. You will share their first-hand experience of the architecture of your destination.

“The participants were blown away. They had never experienced such a good guided tour before!”
Edward Lifson, The Pritzker Prize (Amsterdam, June 2013)
“Just a little note to say thank you for your services. (…) We’ve all learned a lot about Berlin and about architectural theory and history, we’ve been well looked after and feel that a return to Berlin should happen soon.”
“It was very refreshing to have a tour presented by an architect for architects. In the past, during our previous office trips to many other cities in North America we have tried to find similar tours and we never really found anything like it.”
“Perfectly planned and with great knowledge Werner guided us through Madrid with architecture eyes. Excellent. A pity we only had your company for 5 hours!”
“Yet again, the combination of building visits and visits to architecture and design offices in Copenhagen proved a great mix!”
Claudia Epple, erleben! Reisen + Events
“As this was my first tour with GA I was not certain what to expect and was worried that the tour would be too architecturally centred.  This was not the case. Arne did a wonderful job of combining architecturally interesting sites with historical relevant locales, and with city features not readily accessible to the average tourist.”
Dr. Mark Neeser, European Southern Observatory (Budapest, April 2015)
“The selection of projects and their presentation left no question unanswered. Building methods and historical, architectural and social context were all presented in a more than satisfactory manner. Thank you so much!”
Rodolfo Nogales, gna Grimbacher Nogales Architekten (Barcelona, April 2015)
