Moss began Olde Ipswich Tours 18 years ago, motivated
by her love of travel, history and fine culinary experiences.
She is proud of the detailed and carefully planned itineraries
that have offered so many clients unique travel experiences over
the years. She has an undergraduate degree in French from Colby
College and a Masters degree in French from Middlebury College
earned at the University of Paris. She has lived in Paris, Normandy
and Cuernavaca, Mexico. She used to teach French, and likes to
pretend that she still does! She is fluent in French and Spanish.
She earned her certificate from the International Tour management
Institute in San Francisco and began leading tours in 1995. She
is passionate about travel, history, fine wine and great food
and is an extraordinary tour guide.
John Moss is a practicing lawyer in Cambridge and Boston and believes that lawyers can have fun too. He loves Jean, travel and wine (in that order?). He thinks of himself as a spiritual descendant of Rabelais, and although his French leaves something to be desired, he has a great sense of direction.
Caccese has been working with Jean since 2005. He helps
out with accounting, database management, website design and maintenance,
and tour planning and arrangements. He also somehow managed to
gain responsibility for all technological problems in the office.
He and his wife, Jessica, spend whatever 'free time' they pretend
they have trying to keep up with their inquisitive young daughter.

a freelance health-and-fitness writer for various magazines, she
now handles all aspects of tour planning and management-and leads
our Rome, Amalfi Coast and Sicily tour. A self-professed
Italophile, Vicki has been taking Italian lessons since
2010 and hopes to one day become fluent (so that she can then
manage a satellite Olde Ipswich Tours' office from Sorrento).
In her free time, she is busy carting her two teenage daughters
Merithew is the newest member of the Olde Ipswich Tours team.
She assists with tour planning and arrangements. She has a deep
passion for travel and enjoys learning about the rich history
of the many places we travel to. In her free time she engages
in metal working and wood working. Lisa has just returned from
her first trip to Tuscany and is excited to continue to travel
