“Rick Searle is an excellent guide – one of the best I’ve encountered, and I’ve done many trips, both with Road Scholar and Overseas Adventure Travel.”

“Rick Searle is in the elite top group of leaders we’ve ever experienced, and we’ve taken a lot guided trips!”

“We’ve never encountered anyone who gave so much of himself to make sure everyone was taken care of, answering all questions, suggesting restaurants and joining the group, watching out for the people who needed a little more watching when on the trail. All around wonderful human being and group leader.”

“My husband and I were talking about what made this trip in particular so memorable and enjoyable and we both agreed it was you. You’re so personable and knowledgeable. More so than any other group leader we’ve experienced.”

“Rick Searle is exceptional…his leadership, warmth, humor, knowledge, genuineness and enthusiasm far exceeded our expectations. We’d really like to participate in other tours with him.”
