About us

Seeing the world, experiencing diverse cultures, meeting people and photographing the world’s incredible beauty has been our passion.  International travel and a love for diverse cultures grew into an import business of 14 years, Timbuktu Company in Arizona.

During this time we were asked to organize and escort groups to our favorite international destinations.  
We began taking small groups to Bali in 2001 and have continued to add our favorite countries to our list of our small group tours. Together, we take great pride in seeing to details of each tour and personally escorting each group.
