Tiny World Tours was honored to be invited by the Austin Film Society (AFS) to organize this special delegation tour to the Czech Republic where AFS was recognized by the 53rd Karlovy Vary International Film Festival (KVIFF) for over 3-decades of supporting Texas Film. Our week-long tour began and ended in the beautiful capital city Prague where we arranged private architectural history, culinary, and contemporary art tours.
These tours are curated and co-hosted by Edible Austin magazine founder Marla Camp a long-time friend of Dana's and Mark's with deep roots in both Austin and Ann Arbor. Marla is a journalist, artist and food enthusiast who believes that the power of local food can build community and affect change.
Marla's decades of experience and connections open doors and result in accolades such as one recent guest's exclamation, "This is the best dining experience I've ever had!"
Guests love the charming accommodations at Ann Arbor's Burnt Toast Inn and the conversations over delicious breakfasts prepared by proprietor (long time Ann Arborite) Sarah Okuyama. If you want to learn about South East Michigan's arts and food cultures and have a relaxing, fun, and delicious time doing it, this experience is for you!
Tiny World Tours works with a team of dedicated Nepali (Sherpa) partners to bring small groups to the Solukumbu region of Nepal (near Mt Everest) and experience local hospitality and unique cultural connections. Please come along with us on one of our tours or let us custom design a tour just for you!
