Anne Block started her personalized tour service, Take My Mother*Please (*or any other V.I.P.), in 1992 with the mission of sharing the wonders of our world, whether here in our own backyard or in far-flung locations around the planet. For over 17 years Anne’s tailor-made trips and excursions have delighted curious travelers seeking to uncover the beautiful, unusual, and downright quirky in destinations from Los Angeles to Paris, Barcelona, Rome, Cairo and countless places in-between. Anne is always on the look-out for the surprising, and finds hidden gems and stories to tell about every location she reveals. Downtown Los Angeles is a constant source of fascination and discovery to share, as is the little hilltown of Spello in Italy, a tranquil Paris neighborhood by the Canal St. Martin, and many, many more.
