Tara Engelen

At age 23, Tara had her heart set on learning how to speak Spanish. Not believing in doing things halfway, she packed up and left to spend a semester in Spain. Cuba seemed to be the perfect place to dance salsa and no visit to the Antwerp Zoo could teach her about wildlife as spending six months in South Africa did.

Intrigued by Asian culture and religion, she felt that the only way to truly understand, was to move to Southeast Asia. Tara started leading groups on both cultural and adventure tours, exploring all corners from India and Sri Lanka, to Burma, Thailand and Indonesia. Feeling especially at home in Asia's Buddhist countries, her travels ultimately brought her to the fascinating sites of Indochina where she's now leading our group tours through Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos & Burma.
