Coral Lynne-Arnold, Group Department Manager
Coral spent 12 years as the Operations Manager for a tour company specializing in escorted senior tours, and entered the exciting world of student travel and student performing tours late last year! She is very excited for the opportunity to also be working with seniors again. In her rare "spare" moments she enjoys spending time with her 2 sons (Chase - 19 and Dylan - 16), 2 little dogs (Maverick and his mom Destiny), reading, traveling, working out, and enjoying the adventure called life!!
Rani Fletcher, Group Department Assistant
Mary Myers, Tour Designer and Tour Director
Mary often paraphrases the St Augustine quote “The world is a book and those who do not travel read only a page.” Besides her personal escapades, since the mid 1990’s she has managed tours to destinations in the U.S., Canada, Central and South America, Europe and Asia. She loves exploring but it is the travelers that keep her enthusiasm high. The tours she designs incorporate her road experience, her creativity and her desire to help travelers turn those pages!
Karen Flowers, Tour Director
Karen has enjoyed her career as a Professional Tour Director, seeing the world by motorcoach, airplane, ship, train and on foot with her wonderful clients for the past 20 years. The highlight of her work has been making new friends and sharing the wonders of the world through their eyes. She is anxious to "get on the road again" with old and new friends. So….let's go!!!
Karen and her husband Dale live in Littleton and have three children and four grandchildren, who they love to visit in Texas and Norway and to talk about.
