Watch our Tour Leaders’ stories
It is no exaggeration to say that our tour leaders can make a world of difference to the enjoyment of your holiday – so we choose them carefully. The result is that, 97% of travellers said they would recommend us to a friend. Where possible, we train and employ local leaders because they can provide invaluable insights that enrich the trip. What’s more, this investment in local staff really helps us benefit both them and their community.
Every year we recognise the outstanding contribution of our leaders in our annual Tour Leader Awards.
