Phil Azzolino has been escorting tours since 1984. Travel was in his blood from an early age, and the unquenchable desire has led him across the country and across the world, spanning miles and decades. His love of travel and acquisition of extensive, encyclopedic knowledge combines to make him the perfect tour escort, sharing both with his fellow travelers. During his 36-year career he has written, sold and escorted thousands of tour groups of all ages throughout most of North America and six continents.
Once upon a time at a fateful party, Phil met Donna, a girl from Britain transplanted to the States, married her and brought her into the tour company. Thus Group Tours became the complete and awesome company it remains today. Donna’s background in running various businesses gave her the skills to expertly manage all of the backend work of travel business. She also accompanied Phil on most multi-day tours, providing incisive color-commentary along the way. They have been the perfect husband-and-wife team with dynamic personalities, providing personal attention to all passengers, an approach the demonstrates how we all care deeply for our travelers experiences and one that continues today.
