There are many places in the world that we all would love to visit, but never seem to have the time or the money to do it. The world is so spread apart with so many undiscovered places. Welcome to EconoTour. We bring the world to you. In a short amount of time, you can visit the Sphinx in Egypt, perhaps even take a camel ride along the way, walk through the Hanging Monastery in Shanxi, China, explore the Eltz Castle in Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany, even watch the Greek guards of Athens perform their changing of the guard, maybe get adventurous mingling with the wild animals on an African safari, take a stroll across the Ponte Vecchio in Florence, catch a Broadway show in Times Square or just sit outside in a French café across the street from the Arc de Triomphe in Paris to people watch. Come join us for an unforgettable day of adventure.

We use the finest wood available. The wood is given a look of forged, hammered metal. It looks like an old pewtered mug one would find in an European castle. The frame will fit well with a contempory environment or a traditional home. The finish is neutral with a width of 2 5/8" and Rabbet 5/8".
