B&R EXPERT

Thomas Friese

From Durban to Dürnstein

Thomas came to B&R the old fashioned way: by skipping out on a semester of his MBA after a chance encounter with a B&R employee in a Viennese coffee shop. (OK, so maybe not that old fashioned.) Having guided more than 100 trips since that fateful meeting, he now crafts adventures that emphasize immersion and unadulterated fun in equal measure.

“Before we realized it, we were in the air – and then in the water. A bull hippo had come underneath the canoe and flipped it up into the air!”

Accolades

Thomas was both an incredible trip planner and companion. The adventure he crafted for us through Bavaria was perfect. We had done a ton of research, but he still managed to surprise us! An amazing journey.

— Frederick Martel

The more we think back we cannot believe how smoothly you organized our way along Austria's beautiful landscape as well as glorious cultural experiences, exquisite lodgings and delicious meals.

— Martha Griffinger
