The finest in their respective fields, our expert team joins you on a 16-day relay of market tours, museum visits, meetings with locals, and hands-on cooking classes. A few of the competitors:
- Michael Moore, Team Captain (aka Expedition Leader) — Scored a perfect 10 in likability. The Chicago native qualified after spending a decade in the highlands of New Guinea, conducting research around the Pacific Rim and teaching at the University of PNG.
- Kathleen Stephens, Stanford Travel/Study Lecturer — Set a world record serving as US ambassador to South Korea under both Bush and Obama administrations. With too many titles to count, Stephens is favored to take the top spot in lecturing about Vietnam and its place in the world today.
