The role of our tour director is critical when the group is made up of quests meeting for the first time, are traveling to a location they are unfamiliar with, where you may not speak the language, or know the customs. The Tour Director is a part of your group. She/He is there to look out for your safety, to help resolve issues, and to make sure you get what you want from your vacation. During unstructured free time, the Tour Director will make sure that everyone who wants company has it, including dinners when no group meal is scheduled.
In addition to the tour director, local guides join the group for walking tours, give cooking classes, do lectures on specific topics, or in some cases, accompany the group as we travel through multiple locations.
