Come join us on one of our exciting adventures!
I dislike the term 'package tour' as it seems as though everything is presented as a run of the mill experience. This is not what we do. I understand, from my 13 years in the adventure tourism business, that my guests are after a unique and authentic experience, presented by local Guides. This can only be provided, in my view, in an organic way. It is imperative that I spend a little time getting to know what the guest's motivation is, and interests are, in order to best meet and exceed their expectations. I achieve this by meeting with my guests using Skype/telephone/email before they even leave home and conducting an informal interview. We frequently then try to best match guests with others with similar interests, abilities and motivations; guests have joined trips as strangers and left as friends - they return year after year to meet up again on a new trip. A vacation shouldn't be an endurance test; it should be a relaxing way to get to know a destination with some fabulous company along the way. That is what we do and I believe that is what makes us unique.
