International Sporting Excursion in England

October 14–19, G&G took its second annual International Sporting Excursion—a unique cultural and sporting trip to England. The experience began with two days of private tours, exclusive dining experiences, and exploration of London. Next, G&G set off for the countryside of Wiltshire, where the group indulged in England’s historic and sporting culture through tours of surrounding villages and a day of driven pheasant and partridge hunting.
