Travel Director

  • : “One thing I really love about showing guests Eastern Europe is the rich history and culture of places that have previously been impossible to visit due to political situations.”
  • : “Munich is the capital of beer, so taking guests into the famous Hofbräuhaus, at any time of year, gives them a small idea of what it’s like to attend Oktoberfest.”
  • : “It’s magical to see how a group of guests comes together over the course of our trip. I can always tell when that’s happening because suddenly the enthusiasm is palpable.”
