Our Travelers

We have had the privilege to lead tours with National Geographic Expeditions, Stanford University Alumni Travel, Dartmouth Alumni, Cornell Adult University, Field Museum of Natural History, and Yale Educational Travel, among others - as well as design travel for private clients including families, friends and small groups.

Here is what some of our private clients have had to say...



S.F., Portola Valley, CA



The Carrara quarries are unmatched in the world. What appeared to be snow capped mountains, on closer inspection, turned out to be a landscape of white marble. Our private guide drove us in his Land Rover up and down the sides of the mountains explaining the mining process and its rich history and letting us pick up little white souvenirs along the way! This was a piece of Tuscany we would have missed completely, which would have been a huge oversight. Beyond Doorways literally opened this doorway for us and we have the amazing memories and photos to prove it. Because of the small size of our group we had the ability to customize our days around our interests, not those prescribed by a mass market tour company. Melissa and Larry took us to restaurants and shops they knew we would love. Beyond Doorways made our trip magical. Ellen Ferreira, Traveler at Large
