The guiding architects network
Architecture tours led by architects
Guiding Architects is the world’s largest network of architecture tour companies.
Together, our members offer specialised tours in 42 cities across 22 countries, hosted by knowledgeable local architects who are passionate about their cities.
Guiding Architects is an international association, based in Zurich. Founded in 1996, the network grew organically and informally, before becoming an official entity in 2004. The members of Guiding Architects currently offer specialised tours in 42 cities across 22 countries.
Our tours are hosted by independent local architects who are passionate about their cities. Each local company offers their own specialised itineraries that capture key sites, in addition to creating unique customised tours tailored to any area of interest.
Our member companies in each city also create full day or multi-day programmes, taking care of transportation, accommodation and restaurant reservations. In addition to architecture tours, we also hold lectures, publish texts and organise workshops and symposia.
