"Denys is a very accomplished artist in several media; I particularly admire his wall pieces. As well he's a great tour guide. I've been on five of his art tours and enjoyed them all immensely. They're very well organized, instructive and fun and one gets to see places and things one would probably never see otherwise. And the hotels! Each one a jewel, always comfortable and beautiful and rich in local culture. I can't imagine a better traveling experience."

 Jane Wolters, Canada 

 "What I most often tell my students about our Discovery Art Tour experience with Denys James was how affordable and convenient it was to have it all planned out by a professional. The transportation was great, our accommodations were comfortable and interesting, the food was good and each stop along the way was an adventure. We never would have seen as much of the local culture without considerable research and it is too time consuming to learn enough to travel with confidence to exotic places you've never been. Life is short, you have to take advantage of it while you can. As an artist/globetrotter himself, Denys knows how to put together a unique travel experience that is culturally fascinating and comfortable while still being adventurous and creatively stimulating. I look forward to our next trip together"
