The Story of WalkEurope

Tom Harter, after his career working for international media and advertising corporations, decided it was time to turn a page and pursue his dream to be an entrepreneur and start a new venture based on two of his passions -- traveling in Europe & taking a morning pleasure walk. This was the beginning of WalkEurope... a new type of personal-service small group specialty tour company. Tom personally creates and designs each tour to be unique & special, providing guests wonderful local European experiences... and Tom accompanies every tour  providing each guest personal concierge service to enjoy a worry-free holiday.

All WalkEurope tours are designed how Tom likes to travel... staying in locally-owned luxury boutique hotels... dining at restaurants & bistros patronized by locals... hiring the very best local historian & specialty guides... engaging in local culture, embracing the ambiance, interacting with local citizens... and most importantly, having a relaxing time with lots of fun!

Tom is a native of Iowa. After college he backpacked across Europe which started his love of traveling internationally. He has traveled to over 35 countries and lived and worked in Europe & Hong Kong for nearly 10 years while working for The Wall Street Journal. Throughout his life Tom has traveled regularly to Europe seeking out the very best Europe offers.

And please don't let our WalkEurope name misguide you... joining Tom on his before breakfast pleasure walks in Europe is purely OPTIONAL :-)

"It was a magnificent trip!... Love your tours!" Shannon W

"What a patient, fun, knowledgeable travel partner and friend Tom Harter is!  We love traveling with you Tom!!!" Kristi S
