The planning and knowledge of the areas we visit are superb! All questions are answered before and during the trip.

Our tours are active and include traveling like locals when in metropolitan areas. They include a variety of activities (historical guided walking visits, cooking lessons, wine tastings, museums, day excursions, picnics, browsing farmers' markets, canoeing/boating, participation in community events, concerts, easy hikes, or whatever else we find that is exciting and fun), as well as built-in free time for travelers to customize their vacation with more visits or more relaxation. There is something for every traveler to enjoy. The nature of these tours requires good health, physical activity, and resistance to climates different from our own.
