Brenda Darcel Harris Lee

Chief Fantasy Officer

In my family, I am known as “Le Tour Director.” All my life I have organized and directed tours and travel for family and friends. Having lived and worked in 27 different cities, researching and learning a site or location comes natural to me. As a graduate of the International Tour Management Institute (ITMI), I began to lead tours across the nation as a certified tour director. And then, the leadership and entrepreneurial side of me kicked in once again and I established “Tour and See” and bought “Cal Events.” So, Le Tour Director has come full circle!

Through my cadre of companies which also includes Harris Lee Speakers, it is my goal to fulfill your most precious travel fantasy. We are small – on purpose. Our tours are small – on purpose. I want you to have the most unique and customized experience possible. Whether it is flamenco dancing in a backyard in Spain, or dipping a toe into Lake Volta in Ghana, it is our goal to create for you a travel experience that is just as amazing and precious as it is memorable.

We can do this! Come on along…Tour and See with us!

Janneh Johnson

Chief Amazement Architect/Partner

Janneh [ ja-Naē-Ya ] : a village; paradise.

From the moment she was named, meaning was spoken into Janneh’s life that supports her purpose: to create a village - that can enjoy their very own- paradise! Janneh has directed events and conferences for over 17 years throughout the US, Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the islands of the Pacific Basin. Always adding her special touch to the experience, you know it has been crafted just for you. Janneh’s love for all things fashion and her passion for the many cultures of the world were honed and refined while studying International-Intercultural Communication at San Diego State University, and earning her second degree from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. Janneh’s ability to create the feeling of “AMAZEMENT” is her sixth-sense ability to tap into exactly what that means to you. Her creativity, craftiness, attention to detail and deeply rooted appreciation of living her best life, confirms her self-description: “If Oprah & Martha had a baby, it would definitely be me!”
