Everyone’s idea of a holiday is different and sometimes, there is certain joie de vivre that simply cannot be found in a brochure. And why shouldn’t your holiday be exactly how you want it?
While there are many things that make a Travel Counsellor unique, the ability to go direct to ground operators in different countries around the world to create bespoke touring packages, would have to be one of the best. For quite a few years now, Travel Counsellors work with local destination companies in travel hotspots within Africa, Europe and Asia to bring their valued customers truly bespoke experiences.
From start to finish, your Travel Counsellors can handcraft an itinerary, tailored specifically to your holiday requirements and interests. The services they can arrange can include anything from chauffeur transfers, day-tours, personal guiding services to home-stays and private expedition tours.
Whatever the imagination conjures, your Travel Counsellor can bring to life. Your idea of the perfect escape may be to eating your way through tiny Tuscan villages, climbing ice-caves in Iceland or spending an entire week solely in search of perfect photo opportunities in Cambodia with a local photographer; There is nothing impossible when it comes to working with a Travel Counsellor.
A story we love to share is that of a Travel Counsellor who booked flights for a young family from Australia to United Kingdom, flying Air India. Because the family were forced to spend 12 hours on the ground in Delhi, their Travel Counsellor arranged a local guide to pick the family up from the airport and take them to a Bollywood show and private class to fill in the time – because one of the children had a keen interest in dancing. These are the precious, one-of-a-kind moments a Travel Counsellor can bring to life.
A truly personalized trip means you can cast off from the crowds and experience a city, countryside, river or ocean with as many or as few as you like. The local operators become your friends, who know the intricacies of the towns you’re in and can take you to hidden wonders, off the tourist trail. Also, they’re often the same local operators that bigger touring companies use! You can trust that your Travel Counsellor has someone in every country, looking after their customers the way they do.
