We hired Dr. Therese Cullen to be our private guide for a day, since I managed to wrench my knee and couldn't do the steps on the tour buses very well. It was the highlight of our trip! My parameters were that I was interested...More

Dr. Cullin crafted an amazing trip based on my specific needs. My goal to see much of how Christianity grew over the centuries and how the monastic influence directed Christianity in the past can be used contextually today was exactly what I was hoping for....More

We had an amazing day with Therese. Because some of us speak english not that good, she organized a german speaking guide who did a great job as well. Everything was perfect, instead of the wheather ;-). I highly recommend this agency.
