Ireland & Northern Ireland

Carrick-a-Rede Rope Bridge

Northern Ireland

Highlights
  • Discover Belfast and the Causeway Coast in Northern Ireland for 3 days. It's the #1 region on Lonely Planet’s Best of Travel 2018 list. Plus it's Game of Thrones territory - the Kings Road, Dragonstone, the Iron Islands, Renly Baratheon's Camp. Stunning scenery.
  • Donegal (northwest Ireland) is rugged and gorgeous. It’s #1 on NatGeo Travelers 2017 Cool List & we’re there for 3 days.
  • Discover the Wild Atlantic Way - from the safe haven of Kinsale Harbor to the wind-whipped tip of Malin Head. It's the world's longest defined coastal touring route at 2,500 km long.
  • Standing atop the wall of a medieval castle imagining you're defending it back in the 16th century. We visit many castles.
  • Kissing the Blarney Stone - yes, it actually exists
  • Dublin has great Pubs, a famous brewery, a 9th century manuscript of the four gospels of the life of Jesus Christ & more
Whenever you visit Ireland, and you probably will someday, you'll either have to drive on the "other side" of the road, hire a driver or join a tour. Join MyTravelOp and let us handle the driving as you kick back, relax and take some amazing photos.
Highlights
  • Discover one of Morocco’s hidden treasures - the blue city of Chefchaouen. Wander the narrow alleys & let your camera go wild.
  • Explore the coastal city of Essaouira. You might know it by its other name - Astapor in GOT. The Atlantic waves pound the walls surrounding the old city, the quaint fishing harbor & the laid-back Medina in its center make this my favorite Moroccan destination.
  • Riding a top a camel in the Sahara Desert gazing at the sun setting over a myriad of sand dunes
  • Writing your own Arabian Nights tale as you savor a traditional Moroccan meal in an overnight camp in the Sahara Desert while counting a plethora of stars in the nighttime sky
  • Marvel at one of the world’s architectural highlights - the Hassan II Mosque. It’s absolutely stunning. You’ve got to see it to believe it.
  • Explore the labyrinth of alleyways in the 9th century medina of Fes
  • Lying in bed in the early morning and listening to the call to prayer emanating from the local mosque
  • Wander through the 3rd-century ruins of the ancient Roman city called Volubilis
 
Experience our Morocco tour with someone you love or a close friend for memories to last a lifetime.

Discover Peru

Amazon Rainforest
Machu Picchu
2 great destinations

Machu Picchu

Highlights
  • Discover the Amazon Rainforest for 2 nights & 3 days. Macaws, toucans, parrots, boat trips on the local river, hikes in the jungle, overnight in a jungle lodge. See the experience for yourself. I've been there. It's simply amazing.
  • Explore the ruins of Machu Picchu over two days. On Day 1, after arriving on the scenic train ride, our guide leads us through the “citadel”. On Day 2, we’ll arrive early to climb one of the two mountains - Huayna Picchu or Machu Picchu Montana - or you can wander through the ruins on your own.
  • Immerse yourself in the colonial city of Cusco and the Sacred Valley - ancient Inca sites, Spanish churches, the colorful traditional costumes worn by the locals. It’s like no other destination. It’s one of my favorite cities in the whole world.
  • Visit the whitewashed church of San Pedro Apóstol, located in the Andean village of Andahuaylillas. It’s known as the Sistine Chapel of the Andes with its dazzling display of colorful murals, a coffered painted ceiling and an ornate gold-leaf altar.
  • Learn why Peruvian food just might be the best in the world

MyTravelOp founder - John Opperman

Who are we?

We’re a start-up, small-group tour company that’s dedicated to providing travelers an immersive experience in some of the planet’s hottest destinations (e.g. Vietnam and Morocco) and those just coming on to the tourist radar (e.g. Oman).

Founder John Opperman spent 38 years working for hotels, resorts and theme parks before retiring from Walt Disney Parks & Resorts in order to start his own travel business - MyTravelOp.

In the last eight years, John has traveled the world for 2 to 3 months at a time - North Africa, Southeast Asia, Europe, Central & South America and is now ready to get this small-group tour business off the ground.

After leading 8 adventurers on an enjoyable 11-night tour to Morocco, we are offering four destinations in 2022 and adding another six in 2023. Our current goal is to operate 10 to 15 tours a year while constantly changing the destinations and the types of tours (cultural, trekking, cycling, etc.).
