SCOTT DWORKIN

Escorting tours for more than 15 years

In addition to leading tours all over the United States and Canada, I enjoy my travels outside of North America, including Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Originally from Connecticut, my favorite season is autumn when the stunning fall foliage transforms the area into an even more beautiful landscape. I have a particular interest in U.S. history, and really enjoy connecting the places we visit on tour with stories from the past and contemporary issues of the present.
