More Well, i have just returned from the USA, while i was there i did the Grand Southern, which was an absolutely amazing experience, it is the greatest thing i have done so far in my life. I met some fantastic people. Our tour manager, Drew Walker and our driver Bob Smith i think made it their mission for us to have an incredible time! i have to say they excceeded any expectaions i had! I have never had so much fun in my life, and having a tour manager that had a backgroud in history helped make the trip memorable, if your into knowing about the areas your visiting! I would highly reccommend doing the grand southern. its actually 3 different tours. Southern adventure LA- New Orleans, Eastern Discovery New Orleans- New York and The Grand Southern LA- New York. the big one is 24 awesome days of fun and adventure. sometimes it felt like we didnt have enough time in some places to explore, but it was none the less amazing!! I am so excited about travelling, exploring the rest of the world. I cant wait! and the best part will be meeting some great people on the trip!

The Winter Wanderer is like a leisurely stroll through Europe's top destinations. Some of the highlights of the tour include: driving along the French Riviera, exploring the Eternal City of Rome (it's never too cold for Gelato!) and sampling traditional Spanish tapas in Barcelona not to mention retracing the history of WW2 and the Cold War in Berlin and Prague. Winter in Europe is not only magical, it's less crowded and has its very own charms that go unnoticed in the heat of summer. The epitome of a winter wonderland.
