About UsSt. George Touring Company
How It All Started
Believe it or not, the seed of the St George Tour Company was planted in the Bronx, New York! That is where my 7th-grade history teacher shared a slide show of his family’s summer cross-country vacation. Once I saw the wide open spaces of the west, the clear blue skies, and most memorably, the stunning red rock canyons and imposing mesas, I knew my life’s goal was to live among it all. It was a long journey. One that took me from the Bronx to Buffalo, NY, Miami, and Los Angeles before I discovered and managed to set domicile here in St George.
My career was just as varied – public school teacher, cross-country teen tour leader, lawyer, art gallery owner, and international art producer. But, through it all, my heart always longed for travel, especially as a tour guide. While other kids in school wanted to be pilots and policemen, I wanted to be a concierge! While my peers in law school were studying corporate law, I was designing marketing materials for tours to Africa. And while spending a year in China, it was not usual for me to assist the hotel staff by helping my fellow English-speaking guests with what to do and see in Beijing, Shanghai, or Hong Kong.
Having grown up in an extended family that owned some of the most popular restaurants in the New York Metropolitan area and spending summers working in many of them, I knew that combining light outdoor experiences with elevated local culinary offerings would be a home run and, more importantly, an all around labor of love for me!
