My goodness it is hard to believe we are in the last month of the year… but it certainly has been an eventful one! In February I returned to Colombia after 52 years, in March Richie and Yamel tied the knot in Puerto Rico, and from April until now Tours By Nona has traveled via buses, trains, planes and ships. It has been fabulous. We have shared so many fun times with you all. We are looking forward to spending Christmas with you, and we are getting excited about the year ahead. Thank you and God bless you all! We feel privileged in continuing to serve your travel needs. Remember -- travel is food for the soul…so let’s keep the wheels turning! Happy Holidays Everyone!
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.
