Experience the Best of Europe on one of my Small-Group Tours





My philosophy towards travel is to fully immerse one’s self into the local culture. With this in mind I carefully plan my tours, not to rush from site to site, but to be able to take a step back to really appreciate where you are.
Each day will bring a new adventure as we wander “off the beaten path” to discover ancient cities, fairytale castles, historical sites, and jaw-dropping vistas. You will also have plenty of free time to explore as you wish.

I also believe that to truly experience a culture is through its food and local beverages. An important aspect of the tour are the meals we will enjoy together. Each will feature local and seasonal products that reflects the region.
