We recognize the vital role of our tour directors, and their importance toward achieving a hugely successful travel experience.  The role of tour director has many functions.  Beyond being an interpretive expert of the various tour venues, the guide endeavors to understand the needs and interests of each individual group.  Each group is unique; different levels of initial preparation; pace of the tour; balance of learning and recreation, and the things that really excite their interest.

One of our early efforts is to coordinate with group leadership to clearly understand the trip goals, needs and interests, then match the group with the most appropriate tour guide.  These understandings are passed along to the tour director and reflected in a tour that is properly tailored and results in a satisfying experience.  We only utilize professionally experienced tour guides, professional educators, or those with both qualifications to help assure a high quality tour program.
