Dear Jean,

Our recent trip with you to Provence was delightful, informative and so much fun -- we will always remember it. What a treat to have you all to ourselves. You did a wonderful job of customizing our journey to suit our needs and interests. Knowing that my husband and I were celebrating milestone birthdays, you outdid yourself creating a one-of-a-kind experience. We are so grateful for your time, love and attention. I would recommend your tours to anyone looking for a deeper experience on vacation, one that includes history, education and a fuller understanding of the culture, arts and architecture. It's been a couple of weeks and we are still wandering around in a Provence-induced haze of happiness. Thank you!

COLUMBUS - INDIANA - May 16 to 21, 2022

(The same tour, May 10th to 15th was sold out in 3 days)

Columbus reputation as one of the richest architectural city in the country is growing all the time, led Columbus to earn the nickname "Athens of the Prairie." 

This amazing display of good design came from the vision of J. Irwin Miller, 2nd CEO and a nephew of a Co-Founder of Cummins Inc., the Columbus-headquartered diesel engine manufacturer.

Over 60 buildings from schools, churches, jails, fire-stations, government sites, were designed by architects, making this small city, a gem to visit if you like architecture.  

Many famous artists'  sculptures spread all over the town, creates an interesting walking trail.

There is also the Miller House, designed by Eero Saarinen, one of the most beautiful mid-century modern houses, worth the trip.
