PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--New European tour company Coloratour.com, offering specialized private tours in Europe for small groups and families, has launched just in time for Europe’s busiest tourist season. Coloratour.com offers a wide array of private tours in English focused on the specific interests of its upscale tour guests, ranging from cooking to art, from history to winemaking, from flea markets to fabric. The company specializes in private tours of Europe’s diverse marketplaces.
The private tours are led by licensed docents, the best local experts available, who serve as master storytellers and engaging guides. Docents are architects, painters, chefs, wine specialists, dancers, singers, photographers, floral art enthusiasts, etc., not just licensed guides. The tours, which range from just a few hours to a full day, offer travelers in Europe a chance to experience local culture by immersing them in their own areas of interest. Some of the excursions are walking tours; others are road trips by car.
The company’s initial tour lineup includes Paris, Versailles, Provence, Burgundy, Champagne, the Loire Valley, Normandy, Lyon, London, Barcelona, Rome, Malta and Corsica. Coloratour.com’s tours of the best markets in Europe include flower markets, flea and antique markets, art and crafts markets, and markets for books, luxury items, stamps and fabric, among others.
Olivier Chavaren, founder and president of Coloratour.com, commented that each of the company’s market tours provide a chance for visitors to participate in daily commerce in a town, and interact with merchants and other shoppers. “Our docents delve deeply into the local cultures of Europe in ways typical tours don’t, introducing travelers to their own favorite facets of life,” he explained. “We attract discerning travelers looking for authentic experiences, not just sightseeing.
“Our goal is to give our guests a rich understanding of local culture,” he added. “It’s taken a year to complete all the preparations for this launch. We’ve worked hard on selecting only the best docents, developing the right software, building the website and, most importantly, putting together the best possible tours. Now we’re ready to roll!"
Coloratour.com was founded by Olivier Chavaren to offer a new niche in the travel industry – special-interest private tours in Europe concentrating on a wide range of Europe’s colorful markets. For more about Coloratour.com and its tours, please visit www.coloratour.com.
