A tale of two sisters.
Owned and operated by two sisters, Katerina Clauhs Dhand and Molly Crist, Onward Travel is a boutique travel company that designs and guides unique, thoughtful small group tours for individuals and customized trips for organizations to extend to their communities. We’re unabashedly enthusiastic about small group travel, and our itineraries are researched and pieced together carefully to ensure authentic, engaging trips that foster genuine connection to places and people.
Passionate and professional, curious and creative, we’re not your average tour operator: though Onward Travel is a relatively young company, a deep love of hospitality and adventure has been in our blood for generations. We owe our company’s existence (and our abiding love of Julia Child) to our mother and grandmother. We grew up on a farm in Bucks County, PA next door to The Cooking Cottage, a cooking school our mom and grandmother started when we were little girls. As an extension of their cooking school they hosted culinary tours, jetting off to far-flung spots in the U.S. and Europe—and showing us that the world is a delicious, exciting, interesting place just waiting to be explored.
