      Hi! I’m Julie.

      I am founder, travel advisor, trip designer, and host at Grape Adventures Travel and Tours.

      Originally from the Southeastern United States, I have resided in California (in both Los Angeles and San Francisco) for more than 15 years.

      Formerly a school teacher, with previous experience in the hospitality industry, I take “lessons learned” from each of these fields to create memorable travel and tour experiences that entertain and educate (without being boring!)… and create cherished memories and connections for my guests.

      Our women only multi-day tours provide the opportunity to join-in a tour with other women to enjoy new experiences together and make new friendships and nurture existing ones.

      Please join me on a Grape Adventure! I look forward to getting to know you!
