Tours That Need Your Help

We Sometimes Have Group Tours With Openings For The Public –
Check them out!

(This page changes often, check back for new offerings.)

Can you help?

These groups are looking to fill a few empty seats and if you're looking to take a trip and meet some new people please contact the group leaders directly for more information including a detailed itinerary and price.  (We ask you to contact the group leader directly because sometimes our groups add a few dollars to our price in order to have money for driver and/or guide gratuities, or to purchase refreshments, or they add on a few dollars for non-members of their club.  There are a variety of reasons the price they charge is a bit different than what Tours By Design charges the club.  Thank you.)
