Public Events

for virtual travel and fun

On occasion the interactive virtual tours and events that we always offer for corporate and university groups can be booked by the general public. This way, everyone can join a virtual journey with us! 

These virtual events are great to invite a friend or family member from afar to join you. You can easily invite them from our Facebook Events Page, too.

Our “Badass Women of History” virtual event has recently gotten a ton of press in radio, television, newspaper and magazine outlets including Block Club Chicago, WBEZ, WGN Radio, Fox 32 News, NBC Chicago, and more!
