I’m so excited to announce my 2020 tours!
I have been so blessed to have visited many countries and cities, hosted by PRs who have shown me some amazing hidden gems like underground ruins or little jazz bars or a cooking class and now I am hosting tours to take my readers behind the scenes to experience destinations like a travel writer 😀
These tours can all be sold as land-only so wherever you are in the world, we can meet you there.
Working with travel agents and tour companies, I am putting together bespoke, small group tours – and I’m always happy to hear your suggestions on where to go next!
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, and in 2019 we toured New Orleans and Memphis and in October to China.
Here are the plans for 2020 if you’d like to join us…
What they said:
“We just loved our tour to New Orleans and Memphis. It was so wonderful to have all the best pieces organised for us to experience. Every day was exciting and interesting it was a really well balanced tour, giving us personal time so that we could do our own thing or have time out if we so desired. Group time always felt like an adventure and a holiday, to be so well looked after and to have so much fun with like minded people was fantastic. We are keen for another tour with Megan one day soon!”

I have had a lot of interest in another Europe trip, with people wanting to visit many different countries. So this is what we’re planning and will begin to cost up…
A three week tour that will be broken up into 3x one-week tours so you can choose which one, two or all three you’d like to join in with. That way you can pick and choose and we can of course arrange your airfares or any other side trips as well.
One week exploring the best of Italy including Rome, Florence and Venice. We’ll stay in small boutique accommodation and enjoy local guides to take us to their favourite hidden gems for great dining experiences and shopping at artisan studios as well as VIP entrance tickets into places like the Colosseum and Vatican Museums.
One week exploring the old cities of Split and Dubrovnik, either staying on board a chartered boat or in boutique accommodation on land. This is to be decided, so feel free to let me know your thoughts in the form below.
Spain and Portugal
One week exploring a snippet of these two countries including San Sebastian, Barcelona and Porto.
