Cherish Tours was founded by Megan Grant on the belief that women should not feel held back from incredible travel experiences because they don’t have a group to travel with. Our mission is to bring together women of all walks of life to travel to amazing destinations around the world. Each Cherish trip is designed to cultivate companionship in like-minded women while supporting women abroad through intentional tourism dollars. Our first trip will be to Costa Rica in October of 2021. We are currently taking Discovery Forms with official reservations to open in April. Cherish provides once in a lifetime trips for women to experience local culture, cherish their vacations, meet other like-minded women, and make a real impact along the way.
"Cherish aims to open the door to the world for women. Empowering women travelers to cherish themselves, their time off and each other. Coming together for curated travel experiences, not only allows women to take more vacations that they have been dreaming about, but also adds a layer of safety and security by traveling in small groups. With women like YOU in mind, Cherish's website will launch in celebration of International Women's Day on March 8th."- Megan Grant
"Reflecting on where I came from, I was born in Pusan, South Korea and adopted at 5 months of age. I grew up as one of the only Asians in my immediate community. I learned early on to be kind to everyone despite differences, because, well, I was the different one usually. I learned that although I might look different there are many internal characteristics and needs that as humans, we all share. We all share a desire to connect and to belong. The way I grew up has influenced my profession as a couples therapist - I listen to each person’s unique story, I learn who they are as individuals and who has helped shape who they are, and I help them be in-relationship with one another that honors their autonomy and creates connection and belongingness. I am grateful for many things: being adopted, the opportunities of being part of a loving family, sharing life's adventures with my husband, being amazed at creating life and seeing her grow up as her own independent being, and using my talents to help my community." - Faith Drew

"At an early age my Grandma said, "You have all the answers you need". I had no idea what she meant back then.
Today, I realize she meant to trust myself. Trust is something we all struggle with....especially ourselves. When I decided to trust I had gifts to share, my world changed dramatically! Today I share how we can be happy. It is possible and can be easier than we imagine. at the age of 4 I made the decision to be happy and today I share with others how to be happy. In everyday life it is the small things, saying hello and looking someone in the eye when I say it. It is sharing uplifting responses on social media and sharing photos and quotes to lift those who follow me. When I ran a large networking group, it was high fives to EVERYONE in the room! It is the daily hugs, family talk over dinner and inspirational messages left on the mirror. Sharing happiness makes me happy and I am blessed to be able to spread it all around." - Lianne Hofer
