The Group Travel Leader Small Market Meetings Going on Faith

Where We’ve Been: November 2019

Northwest Missouri State University

Maryville, Missouri

Trip: Shades of Ireland

Tour Operator: Collette

Date: June 2018

The Emerald Isle charmed the Northwest Missouri State University Alumni Association on a 10-day tour with Collette. The group visited Dublin, Kilkenny, Waterford, Limerick, the Ring of Kerry and Galway.

“Our Ireland trip was amazing, as we were able to visit a great deal of the signature sites while also having the opportunity for things like watching sheepdogs herd sheep, sleeping in a castle and touring the Waterford Crystal Factory. We also enjoyed touring the Guinness Factory and kissing the Blarney stone.”

— Bob Machovsky, Director of Alumni Relations and Annual Gifts

Windsor Chamber of Commerce

Windsor, Connecticut

Trip: China

Tour Operator: Citslinc

Date: April 2019

For nine days, travelers with the Windsor Chamber of Commerce toured the highlights of China. The group explored Beijing, Xi’an and Shanghai.

“We began our trip in Beijing. The Great Wall was one of my favorite sites there. The cherry trees were blooming, and the views were spectacular. I couldn’t believe we were actually there. In Xi’an we visited a 14th-century city wall and then on to Small Wild Goose Pagoda, where we took a calligraphy class. I felt that was a great extra.

We also toured the three pits of the Terracotta Warriors and Horses Museum with 50,000 other Chinese tourists. I agree with our guide that the Terracotta Warriors should be added as one of the Great Wonders of the World. It was phenomenal.”

— Paula Taylor, traveler
