Guest Lecturers & Tour Directors Make The Difference

Oasis combs the world for unique individuals, distinguished experts, scholars, and guest speakers whose lectures and discussions enrich and deepen the travel experience. Specialists in art, archaeology, religion and culture, they provide and nurture the framework of our learning experience.  Our world-wide web of field specialists, guides and local hosts share a profound desire to impart their knowledge and favorite stories, offering an insight which is more by friendship then by a service and something no guidebook or travelogue can impart.  We also believe that personal attention is the key to an inspired travel experience, so our Tour Directors become the catalyst during the journey.  Richard Koegl, the founder and Executive Director of Oasis, often travels as Tour Director. His passion for travel is surpassed only by his desire to share his enthusiasm and knowledge with others.
