WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY
This is my second mystery tour, and it was absolutely amazing. I came away with new favorite authors, wonderful memories and new friends who share my mystery addiction!”
The tour was excellent, and the trio of ladies who led us are also excellent. Actually seeing where authors have located their stories makes reading the mysteries more enjoyable, adds another dimension to the story.”
You can't see it all on one or even two trips so having knowledgeable leaders and an overall theme provided focus and made the selection of sights and cultural experiences relevant. We saw sights and gained insights that you just don't get on the average sightseeing tour. There was not a single "ok, that's nice" moment.”
If you like to learn and have fun at the same time, take a Smithsonian tour.”
