Gary's Going My Way provides customized tour plans for travel in Europe, Russia, America, and the whole world. Its founder and director, Dr. Gary Cox, grew up in the American midwest, not far from Chicago, and earned his doctorate in Russian Language and Literature from Columbia University in New York. He left a successful career as tenured Director of Russian Studies at a well-known US university to explore new paths as a travel consultant in Europe.

Here's how it works -- Customers describe their special interests and Gary's Going My Way produces a personalized tour plan, and can make the travel arrangements as well -- Gary or an associate can even accompany the tour if desired. We can draw up materials for any part of the world, but the special emphasis is on Russia (Gary has led many tours of Russia for students and grownups alike), central Europe (especially Vienna and Bratislava, Slovakia, where Gary lived and worked for 6 years), and Europe's rivers from Amsterdam to the Black Sea -- A route Gary learned well during his first years as a travel specialist in Europe, directing riverboat tours for a major company. Gary is back in the US now, living in Chicago, the current focus of his Russian-language tours.
