Like minded people that are travellers wanting to immerse themselves in the country and culture they visit. Small group travel - 16 maximum.Dear Ryan,
Last August my wife and I did a trip from San Francisco to Las Vegas with you. The trip was amazing and as our guide, you made it very personal. Thanks to the Australian ladies in our group, it was like five friends travelling around your backyard.
It was also a once-in-a-lifetime trip for me as I hardly travel anywhere (just Australia once and then my honeymoon in Fiji).
I had always wanted to see Yosemite after watching a documentary called "National Parks: America's Best Idea" about 12 years ago. The first episode was about Yosemite and I just couldn't believe my eyes. I had never heard of the place before watching this program. I always thought New Zealand, my home, was the most beautiful place in the world but after watching that TV series, I thought "hang on a minute, I've been lied to!"
A stand-out for me was before entering Yosemite when you told to jump in the front of the car because you knew it was a dream of mine.
Also I wanted to see some big sequoia trees and you took us to your favourite park to see them.
I will remember this adventure for the rest of my life.

How well do you know Thailand? Take this Quiz and see. Updates for these countries re COVID-19:- THAILAND - Covid Update
At the end of March, Thailand closed its international borders and introduced a curfew from 8pm to 4am. The numbers infected are slowly reducing with only 117 still active and 56 deaths.
Thailand is beginning to open gradually with domestic flights operating, restaurants opening and the Sky Train (BTS) in action.
VIETNAM - Covid Update
After 3 months of homeschooling in Vietnam, there were many happy faces last week when everyone could go back to school. Vietnam's lockdown has been almost entirely lifted and there are only 36 active cases and zero deaths. The borders are still closed, although some Vietnamese nationals are returning from a number of countries where they have been working.
Vietnam closed schools and borders in February, quarantined entire regions and traced every single outbreak down and quarantined thousands of people with the assistance of the military. It has been impressive and Vietnam deserves recognition.

World tourism remains at a standstill - Travel Daily article that probably doesn't surprise anyone
COVID-19 has placed the whole world on lockdown, with new research from the UN World Tourism Organisation showing that 100% of global destinations continue to have restrictions on travel in place, and 72% have completely closed their borders to international tourism.
From the start of the crisis, the UN specialised agency for tourism has been tracking responses to the pandemic. This latest research shows that while discussions on possible first measures for lifting restrictions are underway, 100% of destinations worldwide still have COVID-19 related travel restrictions for international tourists in place.
Out of all 217 destinations worldwide, 156 (72%) have placed a complete stop on international tourism according to the data collected as of 27 April 2020. In 25% of destinations, restrictions have been in place for at least three months, while in 40% of destinations, restrictions were introduced at least two months ago. Most importantly, the research also found that no destination has so far lifted or eased travel restrictions.
UNWTO secretary-general Zurab Pololikashvili said: “Tourism has been the hardest hit of all the major sectors as countries lockdown and people stay at home. UNWTO calls on governments to work together to coordinate the easing and lifting of restrictions in a timely and responsible manner, when it is deemed safe to do so.” ... See MoreSee Less
