Founder David Mebane

Planning Travel Since 1999

My name is David Mebane and I am a lifelong traveler that experienced my first international trip as a 2nd grader, and I haven’t stopped since. I founded Fat Tire Tours in Paris, France in 1999 and love showing people around the City of Light. That passion has grown to include other incredible destinations around the globe, and this is the genesis for Kairos Tours. Even after 25 years I still love leading others in their pursuit of creating experiences and memories that last a lifetime.

I live in Austin, Texas with my wife Kelly, and our son Weston and daughter Caroline. However, we spend as much time as we can elsewhere since there is nothing better than an adventure with family and friends!

Where does "Kairos" come from?
Greek - καιρός

Kairos is an Ancient Greek word that means time. It represents more than just time; it symbolizes the opportune moment, the perfect timing to say or do something significant. At Kairos Tours, we believe in embracing these timely moments, curating experiences that capture the essence of exploration and create lasting memories.
