For 10 years, I guided wonderful and engaging tours for Rick Steves’ Europe. I’m also collaborating with my dear friends and colleagues—Sarah Murdoch of Adventures with Sarah, Andrew Villone of Roads Less Traveled LLC, Liz Lister of Jaggy Thistle, and with Reid Coen of Imprint Tours—to lead exciting and eye-opening tours in Europe, Asia, South America, and beyond.

Travel with The Travelphile…and Journey Well!

Through family trips to Asia, leading student tours in Europe for 10 years, and guiding Rick Steves tours for a decade, my travel philosophy has been shaped by some of the best travelers in the business, as well as from well-earned experiences on the road…mistakes, triumphs, and everything in between.

I champion the notion that we can all “journey well” by allowing travel to heighten our senses and to remind us to see things with open eyes, an open heart, and an open mind–even if we’re just “traveling” in our own town. It’s about embracing the love of travel as an opportunity to learn about the people, history, architecture, art, politics, religion, and cuisine of other cultures, and to bring those lessons home and learn from them.

Evergreen Deposit Policy (AWS and RLT Tour Collaborations)

All tours run in partnership with Adventures with Sarah or Roads Less Traveled LLC require a $600 deposit to secure your spot. While we are unable to refund deposits once they are placed, we understand that plans change. All deposits made are “evergreen” and are transferable to another AWS or RLT tour even if you choose to cancel, regardless of reason. There is no expiration date, your deposit can be used for any tour we offer, any time in the future. If you cannot use your deposit, you may gift it to another traveler as long as you contact us directly to make the transfer.

*For tours run in partnership with Adventures with Sarah or Roads Less Traveled LLC:
Complete this online registration form. Please submit one per traveler in your party.

Provisional Registration (Imprint Tours Collaboration)

With the current COVID-19 situation, we understand that few travelers are making definitive plans. Until the pandemic is behind us, we don’t expect anyone to make tour deposits for tours run in partnership with Imprint Tours LLC. We know that many of you still desire to make travel plans, and since, under normal circumstances, many of our tours sell out quickly and you might be legitimately concerned about space availability. So, we have implemented a temporary instrument: Provisional Reservations (PRs).

**For the coming months, if you would like to reserve a seat on any future tour with The Travelphile, run in partnership with Imprint tours, please complete this online Provisional Reservation (or PR)—one submission per traveler.

Upon receipt of PR, you will be officially added to the tour’s roster, contingent on a later deposit and/or total payment. At some time in the future we will make a determination, on a tour-by-tour basis, of when the pandemic threat has sufficiently subsided to make the tour viable. With the introduction of vaccines, our hope is that day is coming sooner rather than later.

Once a tour is approved, we will send notice to all who have PRs. You will then have two (2) weeks to make your Deposit or Payment to convert your PR to an official reservation. Or, if you are not yet comfortable traveling, you may simply cancel without consequence. In this way, you can claim a tour seat while waiting for the virus situation to resolve and we can continue to provisionally plan for future trips. For any tour with an Early Pay Discount (EPD) option, the EPD will be available until the two-week deadline mentioned above, even if the official 8-month EPD deadline has passed.
