Travelling alone or in a group, we all know the joy of meeting great people along the way; of sharing a laugh and a few stories or finding that someone’s passion about a place is contagious and sparks your own imagination. We’ve handpicked the industry’s best guides to bring your trip to life and add that most important human touch, wherever you go. Here’s how we look after you.
You’ll love them because they love what they do and it shows. They have in-depth knowledge of the places you’ll visit, warm, friendly natures and will be on hand every step of the way with commentary entirely in English. We’re sure you’ll be thrilled with your Tour Directors - 96% of customers rate them ‘excellent’ or ‘good’.
There’s no better way to get to the heart of a place and its people than by way of local introduction. We’ve sought out the most friendly and fascinating people to guide the way and bring you closer to the essence of the local culture.
It’s humbling to be invited to be part of a slightly more intimate display of cultural traditions and treasures, to get up close and watch artisans refine their work or musicians expressing something that captures the spirit of their home.
