I left my job in corporate travel to create my own company in leisure travel. After 13 years with American Airlines, I turned my passion for exploring into my work and founded Paper Napan Walkabouts. This company provides guided walking tours of downtown Napa. It was inspired by my favorite way to indulge in the local lifestyle: By experiencing a destination on foot. With Paper Napan, I strive to create experiences that are as authentic as possible and highlight the true personality of Napa. My walking tours not only highlight the destination, but also the locals. Each stop is handpicked for its distinct Napa qualities and great personal service. I am passionate about Napa's unique culture and showing my guests an authentic local experience.
