I’m Stephanie Scott and Stephanie Ventures, LLC is my tour company based in Fairfield, CA, specializing in active, affordable, and custom small group travel. During my 30 year career in gourmet food and wine, I’ve designed many fun and memorable events, travel adventures, and incentive trips. Since 2004, I’ve also had the privilege of working with one of the most popular men’s pro cycling teams in the U.S. and that experience has fostered in me a passion for cycling and a belief that one of the best ways to see the world and meet its people is by traveling around it on two wheels, but at a much more leisurely pace than the pros!
I am certified as a Tour Director by the International Tour Management Institute and have worked as a tour guide in San Francisco. I’ve visited all 50 US States and a dozen or so countries on five continents. In 2014, I founded my own tour company and have created several bike & barge tours in the Netherlands and Belgium. In July 2017 I'll be returning to the Netherlands for a week long tour of South Holland, followed by another tour along France's River Seine. That tour finishes in Paris on the eve of the finale of the 2017 Tour de France so, my guests and I plan to be on the Champs-Élysées cheering on the world's best!
Earlier this year, I became an affiliate of Ticket to Travel. I am so excited to expand my home-based travel business and to offer a wider range of travel products and services to my clients. Check out my website and stay tuned for more bike and barge destinations!
