Escorting tours for more than 15 years

" Originally from London, I worked at a hotel in Germany and as a Local Guide in northern Italy before becoming a Tour Director. I have conducted tours all over Europe, North Africa, Asia Minor, Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, Russia, South America, and all 10 provinces of Canada. Today, I call Toronto home. I love to cook, process the pictures I take on tour, and read. Every day, I wake up and have a wonderful, learning experience awaiting me."

PETER CHOBANOV

" I am a geographer, so what better job can one have than to show off my country! Born and raised in Ontario, I make Quebec my home today. I met my wife on the job and our kids were born into my world as a tour director. I wouldn't have it any other way! Travel is a passion and I love to share the beauty of my country from the Atlantic to the Pacific and all parts in between. Whether it¿s a personal tale, a yarn about fishing, government intrigue, or a close-up bear encounter, I love to tell a Canadian story (or 10), which makes for a more personal and compelling journey. After all, isn't that what travel is all about?"
