About Us

What does “Appian” mean?

Many people will first ask the question, “What does Appian mean?” The word Appian in Appian Tours refers to the Appian Way, one of the first official roads in Ancient Rome, which helped lead the Roman Army to many successes.

Appian Tours, Inc. was established by Erin Curry after working in the tourism industry since 2004. Combining her background in customer service, love of learning and appreciation for travel, she strives to make every person on every tour have unique and unforgettable experiences.

Erin graduated with her Bachelor’s Degree in Selling and Sales Management from Purdue University. After spending a few years in the tourism industry, Erin worked with the American Bus Association and Indiana University-Purdue University of Indianapolis to obtain her certification as a Travel Industry Specialist. She maintains wonderful relationships with motorcoach companies, hotels, attractions, and destination management organizations all over the country to keep prices low and create exceptional value for every tour!  Now, Appian Tours has more than 25 tour leaders to help make your experience exceptional down to every last detail!
