Above And Beyond The Ordinary


Our Mission

Custom Group Tours Inc. is a small, exclusive tour operator located in Vienna, Virginia. We have been in operation since 1989.

We specialize in planning, organizing and conducting customized group tours for various community organizations. The creativity and care put into each tour is our trademark.

Our tour offerings range from interesting Day Trips in the Greater Washington DC area, to extended Overnight Tours throughout the United States and Canada. Our destinations also include Europe and Beyond!

In creating our tours, we love to play a theme! We are very "hands on" and take great pride in the attention to detail that is so important to the success of a tour. We personally escort each tour, and it is our privilege and pleasure to create fun and adventure in group travel!

Our Clients

For the most part, our clients are well educated, well traveled and have discriminating tastes. For this reason, our tours are generally geared more towards the "high end" market. Our clientele, however, recognizes the value of our offerings....and feel they get what they paid for, plus so much more! At least two thirds of the participants on any given tour are repeat customers!

Among past and current clients are:

The McLean Community Center in McLean, Virginia; The Patchwork Federation of Germany, The German-American Club in Konstanz, Germany; St. Stephen's Church in Karlsruhe, Germany; The Army Officers' Wives Club of the Greater Washington Area, Ft. Myer; The West Point Society in Huntsville, Alabama; The Westminster Christian Academy in Huntsville, Alabama; and the Argentine Naval Commission in Washington DC.

Our Team

Custom Group Tours Inc. has been taking our clients on exciting travel adventures for over sixteen years. From the President of our company to our regional representatives and tour escorts, our travel team is made up of former military spouses who have themselves lived and traveled the world over.

Our friendships span the globe, allowing for wonderful networking opportunities that enhance our tours and make them truly Above and Beyond the Ordinary! From a visit to the Ambassador's residence in Regents Park in London, to a special performance of the Garde Republicaine in Paris, from a tour of the Superindent's quarters at West Point, to a reception with the Burgermeister in Konstanz, Germany, these are the touches that can, and do, make our tours truly unique!
