Tour Director for over 15 years. Specializing in local wine country history, wine making practices and processes. Worked in a family-owned Napa winery for 2 years; have also conducted dine arounds, golf tours, vineyard tours, hot air balloon rides, gourmet food tours, airport greets and departures.  

I have worked as a Director on meeting and incentive trips in Europe, Indonesia, South Africa, Costa Rica, Florida, Hawaii and San Francisco, as well as over-the-road tours in the Canadian Rockies, Yellowstone, and New Orleans.  Will customize tours upon request.

As an event planner with demanding clients who want to see everything in a compressed amount of time, I have found the services of the tour guild lifesaving. Not only do they make me look good, they make the local, personal connection that charms my guests and makes them feel more than just tourists. They're not only guides, they are superb hosts for any visitor.
