Who We Are

Richmond Tours is a family-owned and operated student travel company that was established in 1980 by Frank Petruzzi in New York City. Frank's passion for travel began when he worked as a tour escort for a travel agency during college. Despite graduating with an accounting degree, he realized that travel was his true calling and decided to make it his life’s work.

Today, Richmond Tours sends thousands of students on tours every year. The company has a close-knit team of travel experts with more than 60 years of combined experience. In 2018, Frank's oldest son, Anthony, became an owner of the company. He aims to accelerate its success and expand the range of student trips offered.
