We take small groups on big tours!
New View Tours offers a fresh take on group travel. With over fifteen years of experience, Ramelle and Michael Pulitzer enjoy planning small group tours. They offer the opportunity to explore like seasoned travelers regardless of previous experience. They specialize in art focused tours, for practicing artists and appreciators. The couple enjoy revisiting local friends, to provide adventurers a custom, professionally planned travel itinerary.
New View Tours represents an idea – a commitment to sharing a “new view” of popular travel destinations by tailoring trip itineraries to your interests and your activity level. Ramelle and Michael often accompany the group in order to facilitate new experiences and introduce travelers to new friends.
