About this book:
In 1986, shortly after Alan and Harriet Lewis bought Grand Circle Travel, an English competitor remarked that there was no way a bunch of hooligans from Boston could run a worldwide travel business. At the time, Grand Circle was losing more than $2 million a year. Twenty-five years later, Grand Circle has grown nearly 20% per year into a highly profitable company with annual sales in excess of $600 million. The company owns or charters 60 ships, operates 80 trips in 100 countries, and employs 2,300 people in more than 30 offices worldwide.
Driving With No Brakes: How a bunch of hooligans built the best travel company in the world is the entire story of that wild ride—including a time when Alan literally drove without brakes in Costa Rica.
In honor of the 25th anniversary of their ownership of the company, Alan and Harriet Lewis recount the story of Grand Circle and their dream to build a company that would allow active, mature Americans to explore the world, experience new cultures, and help change people’s lives.
