Teacher expands tour offerings to adult groups

This March I will be leading my final student tour to Italy.

This March I will be leading my final student tour to Italy.

I have taken students on more than 20 tours to more than 15 different countries.

These trips  have been an amazing experience for hundreds of students.

I love to travel and to open up the world to others so I have decided to continue taking tours abroad, but this time it will be with adults.

Imagine having your transportation, accommodation and activities planned for you and a full-time tour director who is an expert in the area you will be traveling to.

You just have to enjoy all the culture, cuisine and adventure that awaits you!

I have traveled for years with EF Tours (Education First Tours) with students and have been extremely happy with their emphasis on value and safety.

Their partner company, an adult tour company, is called Go Ahead Tours and I will start organizing tours with them.

It is one of the most reputable adult tour companies in the world with the same values as EF Tours.

It strives to offer all its travellers the best travel experience that is possible.

In March 2017 I will be organizing and helping lead a trip to Great Britain – Highlights of England, Scotland and Ireland.

This will be an amazing tour which begins in London where we will see iconic sights such as Big Ben, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace and more!

Then a train ride through the countryside to Edinburgh, Scotland where we will visit the Castle of Edinburgh, walk the Royal Mile, and enjoy Scottish foods.

Then we travel through the emerald green Lakes District and onto Whales where we will embark on a ferry to Ireland.

We will tour around Dublin, County Kerry and Limerick enjoying the beautiful Irish countryside and seeing amazing sights.

In 2018 I am planning a tour to South Africa.

Having traveled around South Africa this summer I am excited to share amazing experiences such as seeing the “Big Five” in Kruger National Park on a safari, walking elephants at an elephant refuge centre, visiting wineries, and learning about the history of South Africa and Nelson Mandela’s role in ending apartheid.

It is a fantastic 17-day trip that is beyond belief!

I will be holding a meeting in the Williams Lake Library meeting room so that people can learn more about these fantastic trips and perhaps plan some other trips to faraway lands!

The meeting is at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 26. Please come and learn more about these amazing travel opportunities!
