In sixty years of traveling all around the world, we’ve visited a lot of places and made a lot of friends. One constant throughout the years is our commitment to one simple idea: sharing the world with our customers. Doors do open for us, because we have the key. Experience.
There’s no substitute for experience. The only way to create and develop a great trip — be it an experience-of-a-lifetime or that smooth, stress-free quick getaway —is by having been there ourselves. Few travel agents have the firsthand knowledge or industry expertise that we have. For more than 64 years, we have traveled the world discovering new destinations, new hotels, new restaurants and where to find one-of-a-kind bargains. Not to mention, sights of interest (and of disinterest)!
It all started in 1954 when a young German exchange student at DePauw University began offering student tours to Europe. After graduating with a master’s degree in political science, Othmar Grueninger expanded his successful college business into a full-service travel agency in 1956, and based it in Indianapolis. Using his native knowledge of Europe, he began arranging European tours for corporate travel clubs.
