“Enjoy this country in pieces and don't try to do it all at once.”
Once upon a time, all Americans traveled to Europe via England - and I was one of them. I was 20 years old the first time I laid eyes on the United Kingdom, and over 30 trips later I'm still in love with England, Scotland, Wales and N. Ireland. From individual garden tours to unique house rentals, theater tours, golf outings, escorted vacations and independent self-drives - if it's happening across the pond, I will help you get there. I've seen a sheep being born on a quiet country night in the Scottish Highlands and toured country pubs throughout the British Isles. I even spent my own honeymoon here! As a history buff, I'll show you that the U.K. is one of the best countries at cherishing and sustaining their remarkable roots. Eager to see some of the country's world-famous theatre? I have a BA in Theater and am intimate with the West End offerings as well as the Globe and National Theatres. In nearly 30 years of booking travel, I haven't found a dull moment talking England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Call me today to chat about YOUR trip to the United Kingdom.
