A Royal Tour is a special post that we do once in a while.  It is an in-depth interview about a place and what it is most known for, held with someone who is truly connected to what that destination represents.  If you read one thing on this blog, it should be these posts.  For more information, read our post, “What is a Royal Tour Anyway?”.
