1 to 1 Travel Experiences

by George Duffy

Today I hear from a lot of people who'd like to reach beyond all-inclusive vacation packages and make more contact with people who live in the destinations they visit. They want to be more active and interactive.
Welcome to 1 to 1 travel experiences, meeting real people, having fun and doing things that matter to you.
Taking a Vacation that Suits You to a "T"
Love fresh seafood caught and served today? Have a new camera to take incredible images you can upload to Instagram or Pinterest? Want to make  special experiences for the kids as they grow? Or sink your body into the warm tropical water to snorkel with turtles and bright fish?
Maybe stretching a little out of your comfort zone like this woman who ventured to the Galapagos Islands.

Beyond The Beach - Some People Are Ready For More
Maybe you've been to "the beach" many times, or maybe you're not a beach person. At some point most people want to try out different activities when they travel like learning to cook with a local, taking an art class, or maybe a walk in a national park to experience exotic wildlife.
Some people want to go deeper with full length tours: food, culture, wildlife, active (cycling, hiking, walking) and more.

Next Steps

If you are at the early stages of travel planning, reach out.
Planning a trip is fun and I know that a lot of people want to have the control over the choices available. It may seem counter intuitive but you'll actually have more fun and control by engaging a travel advisor early on. Here's 5 reasons.

1. You do the planning, we do the logisitics

2. You choose the experiences, we sort out the procurement

3. You spend the money, we make sure its securely invested

4. You travel away from home, we help protect you against unforeseen risks

5. You experience the pleasure, we work with our network of suppliers and co-workers to ensure satisfaction

I can help save you a lot of time, add a higher level of financial certainty to your trip and I will get you the best value. I can promise this because I will give you a transparent, complete, comparative view of the options.
If you've done a lot of research already, a second opinion never hurts and I can offer up some competing proposals to give you some balance to your decision. I am an expert in sourcing good reliable services.

Are you an experienced traveller and really don't think you'd ever like a group tour?
I hear this a lot from people who are used to doing all their own travel.
Before you discard the idea of a set group tour, read more here or watch the videos below.
Things have changed a lot since days of packing 50 people around  20 countries in 10 days. I work with a small set of tour companies that break that mold completely with small groups of an average size of 12 passengers.

Or something more cushy? See this video from our handpicked luxury tour company.

1 to 1 Travel Experiences:  Customised, Self Guided or Privately Guided
While I sell packaged vacations and group tours, I've arranged many independent self guided and privately guided tours and custom vacations (families, workshops, birding, photography, wildlife, music, educational, culture, history, food, agritours, active.)
You might be surprised to learn that these programs often cost less than set date group tours, depending on the trip and your interests. Read more
Solo Travel, Unspun
If you are single and don't have a partner ready to travel when you want to go, there are really good options now that remove single supplement costs. Read more about those here.
How I Got To Where I Am
I was born to be traveller, but I didn't know it until my first trip to Mazatlan, Mexico. Want to read more about me? Continue reading.
