Small Group Tours to Paris, Italy, Spain, Peru and Machu Picchu
Train travel in Italy is easy, relatively cheap, and fast. On The Traveling Professor tours to Italy we often use train travel to go from one city to another. It beats those big motorcoach tours and makes a tour to Italy more authentic. In today's blog post I will give a couple of tips on how to make your train travel experience in Italy easier and less expensive.
When on tour in Rome, one of the top attractions is the Vatican and Sistine Chapel. Therefore, one of the most crowded attractions in Rome (and just about anywhere else The Traveling Professor tours), is the Vatican. It is not unusual to see lines stretching for hundreds of yards that will take visitors hours to wait on. Take a look at my blog post to see how to visit the Vatican while minimizing the crowds and maximizing your enjoyment while on tour in Rome.
All Paris hotels are graded by a "star" system, from no stars to 5 stars. Some travelers like to select a hotel based solely on the star system. What they don't know is that the star system does not take into consideration the size or location of a room. So, for instance, you can get a 3 or 4 star hotel that is practically outside of town with a teeny, tiny room and you can get a 2-star located in the heart of the city center with a big room. But let's talk about the start system in today's Paris blog post.
Let's face it, whether we are on a small group tour of Paris, a trip to Italy, or on a Traveling Professor adventure to Peru, everyone is on vacation and likes to enjoy a local cocktail (or two). In this edition of The Traveling Professor's blog, I will tell you about three of my favorite cocktails when traveling to Paris, Italy, and Peru. I will also give you the details on how to make them. Santé, Salud, and Salute!
Just about any tour to Paris includes the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame and Montmartre. And frankly, they should. However on The Traveling Professor's tours we try to do give the traveler a bit more than the usual experience. Check out today's blog post and I will tell you about some of the more obscure places worth visiting on a trip to Paris.
Running a Small Group Tour as a Fundraising Activity
The Traveling Professor runs small group tours for adults to Paris, Italy, Norway, Ireland, and Peru. Most of the time, travelers come together from different parts of North America for a week or so to enjoy a culturally enriching and fun adventure. However, I have run tours for charitable or non-profit organizations where one of the objectives is to raise money for the group or a particular cause. In this blog post I will describe the benefits of running a tour for as a fundraiser.

Internationally, I have traveled to Italy four times in 2014, I have gone to Paris twice, have visited Norway, and have been to Peru. Domestically, I have visited Savannah, Charleston, Washington, DC, Los Angeles, Tucson, Dallas (four times), and Austin (twice). Actually, it was a light year for me. But through my traveling, I have come across some great items that I can recommend to you whether you are taking a small group tour to Paris for a week or a weekend trip to Chicago.

What to Do If Passport is Lost or Stolen
Everyone thinks it will not happen to them - but it does. On my small group tours to Paris, Spain, Peru, and Italy we have had a total of 3 people lose passports in the past 5 years. Because travelers were well-prepared, they got the documents back quickly and they were able tor resume their trip. If they were not prepared - the tour would have been ruined. Take a look at the steps to follow in case of a lost or stolen passport.
