HELLO! I am Mike Ross Of MIKE ROSS TRAVEL. I have been a professional tour guide since 1982 and a secondary and post-secondary educator since 1971. I’ve taught in the Jackson Public Schools, at Eastern Michigan University, Jackson Community College and Michigan State University.
In addition, I’ve studied at the University of Munich and am a published author of foreign language and travel materials. I lecture nationwide on travel, culture, history, and foreign langauge methodologies. Each of these tours is personally created and crafted by me. I arrange the air, hotels, all ground transportation, excursions, and guide you through the sites. In fact, most of my groups are only 8 people and I drive, so you have a private van and driver on many of the tours. I speak German, English and quite a bit of Italian and French. I am dedicated to giving you the tour you have always dreamed of but may have thought was out of your budget. Thanks for visiting my site and I hope to hear from you soon. Mach´s gut, MIKE
The mission of MIKE ROSS TRAVEL is to bring history and culture alive for each of you through a vibrant and exciting travel experience. Rather than the pre-packaged crowded tours of the huge corporate companies, Mike Ross Travel specializes in small group, unique travel experiences. I personally guide each tour to every corner of Europe, the United Kingdom and Ireland.
In 1982, I founded ETCS, Inc., a non-profit 501(c)3 educational travel organization, parent company of Mike Ross Travel, and began with one tour. Since then, I have arranged and personally lead dozens of tours all over the world. I look forward to broadening your horizons. Please join us on the next tour!
