“Once the travel bug bites there is no known antidote, and I know that I shall be happily infected until the end of my life” – Michael Palin

What can I say? Except that those words are my sentiments exactly.

My plan was to stop escorting tours after Kenya 2022 but the truth of the matter is I can’t seem to stop. I’m thankful that in 2022 7 International escorted tours are all SOLD OUT with waitlists except Dubai (2 rooms remaining).

Now even though I have visited at least 64 countries including all 7 continents, plus been on 89 cruises; there are still a few places the wanderlust within me has a need to return to. That being said, if anyone has an interest in joining me on any of the following, feel free to inbox me at

We’re Going Going Going to…

Egypt, the land of the Pharoahs next month then in December to The Maldives. Both destinations have been long awaited for so many. For some, Egypt and a cruise on the Nile River has been a dream for over half a century. For my 5th plus tour not including my solo trips; I’m honored to be their escort. We have the best 5 star hotels in Cairo, Luxor and Aswan (home of the Nubians) as well as a private Egyptologist and an awesome grounds and security team upon our arrival. What’s needed? Negative PCR, Completed Travel Health Declaration. Fully vaccinated is smart and highly recommended. There are 18 in our group from both coasts and the Midwest, and almost half are brothers for a change. If you think you want to join us; we can still add you. Dates: Oct 12-26. Cost: $3100pp Dbl occ. (add $1050 for single occ). Airfare from JFK less than $900. There is an optional day trip from Aswan to Abu Simbel. Depart after breakfast and you’re back late afternoon. Now that’s some real jet setter kind of business.

The Maldives, we can still add you. Set in the middle of the Indian Ocean, a short 4 hrs from Singapore. Truly a place for total relaxation It is not your typical running here and there to see this, that and a 3rd. Simply RELAX. Your Over the water bungalow will allow you to be lulled to sleep by the gentle sounds of the Indian Ocean beneath you. There’s a wonderful spa, all types of water activities including water aerobics classes, night fishing, breakfast and dinner is included, transportation from the mainland to your private resort by speed boat is also included. Dates: Dec 6-12, 2021. Land Cost: $3300pp dbl occ. Airfare from SFO approx $1200. I can get you a great savings on Business Class on Emirates. If interested in either destination; inbox me

Upcoming 2022: Australia, Black Paris, North Sea Jazz and Iceland, Kenya Safari and South Africa. We are hopeful the pandemic will be behind us. These will be my last Escorted Tours. After which I will continue to arrange unescorted trips for groups and individuals.
