About Megan’s tours

In 2017 I took my first group to Vietnam for two weeks starting in Hanoi and ending in Ho Chi Minh with some over nights on a boat in Ha Long Bay, Hue, Hoi An (where we got some great clothes tailored) then out of Ho Chi Minh (also known as Saigon).

In 2018 we went to Italy with 12 people from Rome to Orvieto, Siena, Cinque Terre, Venice and out of Milan, three of my guests to Vietnam coming back to join me again.

In 2019 we toured New Orleans and Memphis in March and in October I took a fabulous group of 18 to China.
