They will help you to explore and make the most of your time, possess a caring and professional manner and are totally unflappable in the event of a problem. It is like being with a trusted friend accompanying, rather than taking you, to a destination they really love. You will learn far more from them than you will from many guidebooks – our Tour Managers’ enthusiasm and intimate knowledge of the destination will bring your holiday to life.

Expert Local Guides

On some tours we use the services of specially chosen local guides who really know their subject. In addition to providing detailed relevant background information, they can also help you connect to the local way of life and culture of a destination.
