1. Bookworm

Have a big reader in the group? The tour’s host, Solomon Schmidt, lives and breathes history and published his first historical book at the age of 12. Solomon will share fascinating stories relating to the three authors’ lives and works, allowing attendees to step into their literary worlds and experience the sights, sounds, and smells that inspired them, as well as learning some little-known facts along the way.

2. Traveler

For those Muggles filled with wanderlust, treat them to a truly unique adventure as they document their journey throughout the United Kingdom. They’ll go beyond the tourist attractions to find hidden gems. Stonehenge, Edinburgh Castle, and Platform 9 3/4 are just some of the stops on this fantastic tour. Who knows – maybe they will also be inspired to write their own brilliant work of fiction.

3. Teacher

Teachers shape our lives and deserve the world in return. Your favorite teachers will step into the textbooks and assignments to experience lessons firsthand. Whether it’s seeing the rich history from generations past or strolling the historical streets of Oxford, they could use a break. They’ve been working hard both in person and virtually and could use some TLC.
