OUR PHILOSOPHY

Peter Fuller and Victoria Price became friends across the globe through a shared love of actor Vincent Price. Together they have led two award-winning cultural tours inspired by Price, a man widely revered as a Renaissance man during his lifetime.

Vincent Price, a Yale and University of London-educated art historian, traveled the world as an actor, art collector, and arts advocate, with immense gratitude for the extraordinary life he had been given. He understood that to really understand and experience another culture, you must EXPLORE it deeply -- through its people, its history, its culture, and its cuisine. He did this wherever he traveled.

SAVOR means to taste something deeply and fully, to give oneself completely over to the enjoyment of something. To savor is to invite JOY! It invites us to take the time and the space to connect with our own hearts and those of others in a way that aligns us with what is meaningful.

To CELEBRATE is to share our joy-filled experiences with others in ways that continues to allow us to expand our lives by connecting with others. It is at one the culmination of our explorations and savoring, and the continuation of it as those experiences in turn inspire others to do the same.

These three essential ingredients are the fundamental recipes for living a connected adventurous thoughtful life in the world! They form the philosophy of ESC Tours. And we are so looking forward to exploring, savoring, and celebrating with you!
