Escorting tours for more than 15 years

"A European tour is very educational and lots of fun. It is always enjoyable to see guests return home with thousands of beautiful pictures and wonderful memories. My greatest satisfaction as a Tour Director has always been that I can let my guests not only see a city, but also feel and experience the absolute magic of a city like Paris. That cannot be found in any guidebook or on the Internet!"
