Hiking, Biking, and Walking Across Italy: How to Explore the Cammini d’Italia

“Italy has embraced the Via Francigena as none of the other three nations have,” writes Timothy Egan in his New York Times bestseller A Pilgrimage to Eternity: From Canterbury to Rome in Search of a Faith.

The Best Tour Companies in Ireland

Posted: 8/17/19 | October 17th, 2019 Ireland. It’s a scenic country full of rolling green hills, photogenic cliffs, impressive castles, cozy Irish pub, friendly locals, and a lot of Irish charm.

Ireland has a special magic to it that makes every visitor fall in love. (Ok, not everyone, but most people love it here!) While the cit...

The Best Tour Companies in Europe in 2019

While I love solo travel as much as the next person — and think Europe is one of the best places to backpack around — the continent is also a huge destination for tour groups. When you think of group tours, you may imagine a horde of camera-clicking tourists wearing socks and sandals swarming off a massive bus, taking lots of pictures, and then moving on to the next site. In the past, that image ...

The 12 Best Walking Tour Companies in London

Updated: 7/10/18 | July 10th, 2018 As you may know, I’ve been basing my travels lately around a theme in order to make them a little more than just a checklist of the top attractions. Having spent some extended time in London recently, I decided to focus my trip around a thing I love to death: walking tours. I wanted to see this city on foot and learn about it from the ground up. Since London is a megacity filled with a mega number of walking tours, from free tours and literary tours to pub cr...
