Our Tours for 2016

steve solosky traveling professorWe really do something special here at The Traveling Professor.

It is hard to believe that I have been taking people on small group tours since 2009.  We started running strictly "budget" trips but as time went by, we kept upgrading and upgrading to the point where we use nothing less than quality 3-star deluxe hotels on all our regular tours, we have professional guides, limo pickup at the airport regardless of time of arrival, VIP no-wait-in-line admission.  Our small group size lets us into places where no other tour goes and no guide book will tell you about.  For instance, the ancient ruins you can get up close to an personal with in Rome, the restaurants only known by locals, the artisans in Florence that only WE get into to see, in Iceland we go off the beaten path for lunch at a dairy farm, and in Peru we hike the REAL Inca trail, not the one you always see on TV.   To find out where The Professor is going in 2016 and to find out how you can come along, read today's blog post.
