, a division of Travels with Friends LLC, is a US based travel company which began in 2001 with a dream, and has flourished as a result of dedicated service and thousands of satisfied clients (please click here to read our past guest comments
). We work with incoming tour operators and independent guides to design Private Shore Trips and City Tours for our clients. While the tours are not personally operated by our staff, we travel extensively to meet with owners, tour managers and local guides so we can ensure the high standards and quality that is expected by our clients.
Steven Hurley and Roger Tinsman, are the co-founders of “Travels with Friends LLC”. We started our business by personally leading private tours throughout Europe. Very quickly we realized that clients love private tours! As our business grew, we met more and more local guides, and decided to create a network of private tours to offer on line.

Ken Diaz became a partner in 2007 when we decided to focus exclusively on private tours with a specialty of shore excursions for cruise passengers. Ken brought more than 20 years of superior customer service and client management to our team.

Unlike most of our competitors, we continue to focus exclusively on private tours. We're glad you are interested enough to read about us. Why not let us show you what our many clients have experienced? We'd be honored to provide you with Private Shore Trips.
