Founder and Director: Greg Hughes

Greg has 25+ years in training, organizing, and taking groups overseas on guided trips, while exploring over 76+ countries up close and personal. He has been fortunate to have logged over 10,000 "experience" hours in team/group guided trips overseas. A businessman, philanthropist, and entrepreneur, Greg continues to bring the fun of adventure travel and the significance of giving back, while executing memory-making experiences to global travelers.

Some of his greatest travel accomplishments have been: being published in USA Today for an article on transformative travel in 2009, solo-motorcycling through southern Africa, delivering food and medicine to remote villages in the Andes of Peru, canoeing deep into Amazon, living with a Venezuelan tribe for a few days, and shark diving in the Caribbean. His biggest accomplishment in 2016 was climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro.

At present, Greg and his wife, Lisa, live in Fort Collins, Colorado, with their four children. Greg and Lisa enjoy lots of laughter, sports, and spending time in the mountains of Colorado with their family and friends.
