Our very own Indiana Jones, Sarah can usually be found wading through rivers in search of a mythical cave or perched perilously on the edge of an archaeological site – with John in tow. Both are passionate about classical tours and always go that ‘extra mile’ to ensure that their clients have a unique experience.

Emma DarbyPsychology Graduate, wife and mother of two, Emma has over 10 years’ experience in the School Travel Market and has travelled extensively; venues too numerous to mention. Would love to visit New Zealand and would eagerly return to St Petersburg and Washington. She is hard pressed to choose between the theatron at Taormina and the eerie body casts at Pompeii as her favourite Classical experience. Her greatest achievements are sending pupils on trips that create lifetime memories and inspire future life choices. email me
