Since 1993, I have planned and led more than 40 architecture tours in the Twin Cities, the Midwest, and Italy, ranging from two-hour walking tours to multi-day bus tours. Click here for a selected list of tours.

Because I have established relationships with owners of historic buildings throughout the Twin Cities, I am able to bring my tour groups into wonderful and otherwise inaccessible buildings.
