Lawrence, KS

Domestic and International Group Travel Specialist

Group Travel has been my focus since 1975 working almost exclusively with Special Interest Groups. This includes Museum and Arts groups, University Alumni, Sports Teams, Performance Groups, Fraternal Organizations, Church and Missions related groups, as well as numerous youth groups.

Different groups and organizations have different needs and it's my responsibility to help provide all of the options available so that your organization and you are able to make an informed decision. Travel worldwide is ever changing and you need someone to help negotiate the best value and minimize your exposure to unwanted surprises. Anyone can send you around the world. It is the details that are important and you need someone who knows what they are doing.

My international travel experience began with sailing the Queen Mary from New York to Southampton, England in 1959 followed by 4 weeks in Europe. My undergraduate and graduate degrees are in Business at Washburn University in Topeka and the University of Kansas, respectively, with an interest in International Business. My passion for travel really came into being as an exchange student at the University of Copenhagen followed later by serving with the United States Air Force in Vietnam. I've been traveling ever since!

Life is too short to not get out and explore our world, learn about other cultures, art and history. So.. go on an adventure! It doesn't have to be somewhere far away and exotic but possibly close by. You might be surprised!! Keep me in mind if your group needs any assistance exploring its options.

ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL TOUR WITH CHRIS!
I really enjoy traveling with Chris. He has years of experience and is simply a GREAT leader when going on tour with him! Chris is always very enthusiastic, warm, inviting, and inclusive when you travel with him. He checks in with his entire group regularly to ensure they are having a wonderful time. Travelers never feel "rushed" with Chris. When traveling
you just never know when there might be a little bit of an unexpected snag when traveling in another country. Chris remains calm and reassures his travelers in cases like this. BUT....the snags we experienced were not his, but coach transportation issues where we were visiting. I have also worked with Chris on planning group travel plans. He always has great ideas for me that I may not have thought about. I highly recommend Chris Armstrong for your travel needs and adventures!
