Travel enriches who we are. “On Maverick Travel trips I have learned countless history lessons, gained political insights, learned about cultural achievements and experienced some of most beautiful works of art, natural wonders and amazing human beings. Pinch me moments”. Bonnie Fitzgerald, 2018

We are planning several new trips in 2022 and 2023, including Bonnie’s annual January workshop at Hacienda Mosaico in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico a workshop in Barcelona and a travel tour to Italy.
Many of the daily adventures on Maverick Travel trips are UNIQUE, one-of-a-kind opportunities with some components not available to the public. We offer intimate hassle free travel, professional escorts and university educated guides, wonderful accommodations, and street-level cultural engagement based in the world of art, architecture and archaeology. On many of our trips we create memento art-works along the way in workshops, visit artist studios, and enjoy fine food sampling, wine tastings and of course see lots of mosaics! Our trips are designed to inspire, educate and entertain. We explore the worlds of art, architecture, archaeology and natural wonders. All of our trips are grounded in a sense of community, and often the community of mosaic art.
Maverick Mosaics has lead travel adventures to Paris, Normandy (2019) the Lorie Valley and the Périgord region in France (2013, 2016 & 2019), Spain (2014), Italy (2015 & 2018), and Ireland (2017). All were all amazing trips, thanks in large part to the expertise and planning of our travel and logistics partner Mr. Rene Piard and his companies A la Carte Travel and Dream Travel. Mr. Piard is a leader in exclusively providing educational institutions with affordable access to learning opportunities abroad, and Maverick Mosaics qualifies as an educational institution. Hassle free travel is a paramount feature, ground transportation and transfers are included, no waiting in lines for scheduled tours and we have professional speaking escorts and guides traveling with us. Along with Dream Travel we promote the values of understanding the world we live in through experiencing and learning about different cultures. With 25+ years of experience organizing tours for educational institutions, Rene Piard is the perfect partner with Maverick Mosaics for our unique travel and learning experience.
WHAT OUR TRAVELERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT OUR TRIPS:
Every time I try to decide which MM trip I enjoyed the most: SW France, Ireland, Italy/Slovenia, or NW France…there’s no doubt! They were all FAVORITES! Thank you again for putting together these fully amazing trips! And tour guides of the caliber of Bruno were appreciated too!
Having been on 4 of Maverick’s trips we have always experienced a perfect balance between structured, educational travel and free time to explore on our own. We also feel we get a better feeling of understanding of the countries we are privileged enough to visit due to your plans to balance ‘tourist’ spots with truly unique ‘hidden gems’ of the area, which is sincerely appreciated. – Don & Susan
With Bonnie and Ken we all were taken care of and enjoyed a superior sensory, intellectual, and emotional experience. My feet are still floating above the ground. Thank you Bonnie and Ken for another life treat. — Camy
