In 2016, I created DTours to give visitors to Atlanta the opportunity to experience my city like a local. The original idea came from traveling to 32 countries (and counting) and the enjoyment from getting off the beaten path and experiencing authentic culture. In 2018, I'd like to return to that vision and provide the same service to my friends - but internationally. So, I'm excited to announce that DTours will be offering two private and customized European DTours during the 'shoulder seasons' – one in Spring (April or May) and one in the Fall (October or November), with special 1st year pricing.

So, have you been wanting to travel to Europe but not as part of a large tour group, being rushed from location to location and viewing the landscape through a window? You'd like to visit some of the must-see attractions but you also want to experience the local culture and see how people live. If you don't even know where to begin, let me use my travel experience to be your personal guide.

I’ll work out all the details of your:

  • Itinerary – we'll visit cities and popular attractions but also make time for smaller villages and the countryside
  • Lodging – we’ll stay with locals, either at B&B's or Airbnb homes or even monasteries 
  • Transportation – arrangements will be made for public transportation, trains, buses or ferries
  • Meals - we’ll eat at local restaurants but also shop in public markets and local stores

The options for Spring or Fall 2018 will be for 12 to 17 day trips to:

  • UK - England & Scotland

  • Ireland

  • Italy

  • Norway

You determine which country we'll visit and you decide your level of involvement in the preparation. We’ll have an initial planning session and then I'll provide you with regular updates. But if you choose, you can just show up on the day of departure. Once we reach our destination, I can either be with you for the entire journey or be present for as much, or as little as you decide. In other words, you get to choose your adventure and I get the pleasure of arranging it. 

For the 2018 launch, your fee will only be for the costs of my transportation and lodging. I'll cover all other personal expenses. A fun, relatively stress-free trip takes several months to properly plan, so the deadlines for booking will be:

  • Apr / May 2018 - November 1, 2017
  • Oct / Nov 2018 - May 1, 2018

If you're interested or have other questions, please email me at dan@dtour.me and we'll begin the adventure from there. I look forward to hearing from you and remember to 'Tour Like a Local' wherever your journeys take you!
