Today, Riccardo is based in Sorrento, Italy where he maintains the Wherever Tours office.  However, he still participates in leading tours throughout the year.   

David Shick is an Italian-American, free-spirited entrepreneur who has been involved in several diverse and successful ventures. He is an educated scientist, who owns a medical device manufacturing company.   He is also a highly skilled, organized, and knowledgeable travel professional who has been coordinating group tours for over 20 years.  He also has a passion for music, which inspired him to co-found and host one of the most successful summer concert series in New Jersey.  Along with Riccardo, David meticulously plans and helps execute every custom, featured, and signature tour.  He manages the Wherever Tours office in New Jersey.
