Chris Benton, a Sales Consultant, has been with the company for over 8 1/2 years. Chris decided to travel to on our Grand Circle Travel tour, Impressions of Italy: Amalfi Coast and Tuscany. He always knew he wanted to travel on this tour and was lucky enough to share the experience with his partner, who's family originated from there!
His favorite moment was first arriving to the Amalfi Coast and turning the corner to be met with gorgeous scenery which was followed by some Lemoncello to celebrate the moment.

Hector Tobar, a New Customer Acquisition Specialist, traveled on our Route of the Maya tour last summer which visited El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Belize.
Hector has been with Grand Circle Corporation for almost 3 years and was excited to travel on this adventure as his father immigrated from El Salvador during their civil war. He had the opportunity to learn more about where his father was from and learn more about the culture.
His favorite moment was during a hike up the Volcano Pacaya in Guatemala, just a few days after it erupted and was close enough to the lava flow to almost touch it!

Meet Andrew French, a Traveler Relations Specialist who has been with Grand Circle for 21 years.
Andrew had the opportunity to travel on our Safari Serengeti: Kenya and Tanzania tour in October of 2018. Seeing the Serengeti was always a place he has wanted to visit in Africa.
One of his favorite moments (besides seeing all the animals) was interacting with the locals. Show below is Andrew with children from a Grand Circle Foundation supported school.
"The kids at the Grand Circle Foundation school were so happy, despite having so little, and I loved talking with them and looking at the inflatable globes we brought, showing them how far we’d come to meet them."
