OUR LOCAL LEADERS
In the mid-’90s when most Asian tour companies were operating with imported tour leaders, we made the decision to only use local tour leaders. We realised the unique access that comes with being guided by someone who lives and breathes the daily life of each place.
It was a radical thing to do but we have never looked back. Our local leaders help you really get inside a destination and continue to form part of our original service philosophy. They can speak the language, read the menus, understand the day-to-day world around them, offer personal insights into their history and culture, and are passionate about sharing their homeland.
Using local leaders is also part of our commitment to responsible tourism. By basing ourselves in Asia and employing local tour leaders, we aim to have more understanding of the cultures we visit so our trips can be more culturally sensitive. Our local leaders help ensure we celebrate our differences with respect, understanding, and mutual benefit.
