Tour leader

Debra Freeberg is professor of communication and director of theatre emerita at Calvin University. She has led students and alumni groups to explore culture, faith and arts in Scandinavia as well as Ireland, England and Scotland; she also regularly leads a popular CALL Shakespeare trip to Stratford, Ontario.


This tour will have a moderate pace with plenty of walking around museums, ruins, and castles. Participants should be able to walk 1-2 miles fairly easily on walking tours and rambles. Once we arrive at a site, we will be on foot until departure. (Not all sites have easy access to taxis.)
