Lighthouse Travel & Tours

The initial focus of our niche tour company was to create unique events and tailor-made group tours in the San Francisco Bay Area, complete with memorable trips off the beaten path. Now, LT&T offers customized group trips across the United States and Europe. We work closely with technology, healthcare, banks, social groups, and churches, among other individuals and business organizations, to plan our trips. Trips are great for retreats, education workshops, team building, reunions, and customer thank-yous.

LT&T was created in 1998. Our privately owned small womam business is based in California.
