An Adventure for Intrepid Explorers

Calling all the adventurous souls, the trailblazers, the ones who crave experiences beyond the typical tourist trail!

I’ve always liked going off the beaten path.
When other tours were walking the Louvre, we were climbing the pyramids.
While other tours sailed the Seine, we sailed the Nile, and crashed down class 3 rapids in the rainforest.
While other tours were eating beans over toast in London, we were eating pho on the streets of Saigon.
For the sake of the program and the love of my students, I’ve spent a few years in popular destinations: Japan, Spain, in Ireland, in Italy.
My whole life, I’ve dreamed of going where others don't. Where authentic experiences are still there for the having.
This year I’m going back to my roots.
This year we are touring the Adriatic, and casting our hearts back to ancient Rome and the modern Balkan coast.

Join us for Echoes of Empire.

Unveiling the secrets of ancient Rome, from the iconic Colosseum to the awe-inspiring Vatican Museums.
