It’s hard to believe that the first quarter of the year is almost done. Where does the time go?? We still have room on the International Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon, and we have some super fun day trips coming up. I am happy to report that we had a great time in Southeast Asia, but it sure is good to be home! For fall we have put together a fantastic tour from South Dakota to Yellowstone with lots of wonderful sights in between. Be sure to plan on joining us on the renowned Broadway show Les Miserables! We are offering it in both theaters. We feel privileged in continuing to serve your travel needs. Remember -- travel is food for the soul…so let’s keep the wheels turning!
May the luck of the Irish be with you!
Nona's love for adventure and travel began at the age of five when her family sailed into New York harbor on a ship coming from South Hampton, England. Graduating from Rollins College in Central Florida with a degree in Foreign Languages/Political Science, Nona was well on her way to starting her own travel business.
To become fluent in Spanish, Nona entered an exchange student program during college, living in Colombia, South America. There she further discovered her enthusiasm for foreign cultures and traditions. That still holds true today. Over the last 30 years Nona has traveled to every continent and taken groups along with her. Tours by Nona is a family owned and operated company that encompasses her years of experience in the industry as well as her passion for sharing the opportunity for others to see the world.
