Group Leader Spotlight

"People often ask why I continue to be a Group Leader on trips with Grand Circle. The answer is simple for me: I can't think of a better way to enjoy my passion for travel than with friends, old and new … Our groups have included anywhere from 9 to 39 people. Each and every one was a lot of organization and work, but all the learning, meeting new friends, and just having fun built lifelong memories."

"I recently completed my first trip with Grand Circle Travel acting as a Group Leader. What a wonderful and rewarding experience! From my initial phone call inquiring about what was involved with being a Group Leader, through to the completion of our trip, everything was more than we had ever expected! The group sales staff was extremely helpful as we set up our River Cruise, Eastern Europe to the Black Sea".
