Travel for me is about fun, adventure, meeting new friends, creating lasting memories, and learning about the history and culture of the area.  It is my passion for travel and desire to share some of my favorite destinations in and around California that spurred on the idea to create Cal Explore Tours.

With so many wonderful places to see and visit, I hope you will allow me to show you some of my favorite places on a future tour.
