It’s the difference between learning about an area’s culture from an interesting local perspective and that of an everyday 50 seat bus tour with a guide who is really on a working overseas holiday.
When you come across someone who has a complete and utter passion for what they’re talking about, their eyes light up and the expression lines on their face expand to bursting point. They want to portray with every sense what it was like to be there; to evoke the sounds, smells, sights and feelings of a certain time.
These are the types of local guides that live and breathe the Med Experience.
Czech, Croatian, Bosnian, Bulgarian, Greek, our guides are local to each region that you visit on your tour. They have been described by past guests as ‘interesting’, ‘funny’, ‘amazing’, ‘knowledgeable’, ‘genuine’ and ‘caring’.
They have seen their countries come through periods of development to emerge as modern hives of activity, where the past and present merge to create a melting pot of cultural experiences.
Your guides are there to help you to gain a better understanding of each location, delving further than face value into the current way of life and sharing a deeper understanding of the history and its current effects.
Along your journey with us you will meet local partners, experience local food and take part in activities that form the life and culture our guides have grown up with. We want all of our guests to have the most authentic local travel experience possible. This means that you’ll have access to the best local cafes, restaurants and hidden bars to ensure that you experience day to day life as a local.
The use of local guides on our tours makes a Med Experience tour distinct and unforgettable, combining local knowledge and experience to create a perfectly balanced tour for the culturally curious traveller.
Experience the Mediterranean the Med Experience way!
“Our guide was incredible. I’ve done tours before, and the way he got everyone into the spirit was awesome…he was one of us, he spoke to us on our level, but had great knowledge of the area, he knew the locals, and he had PASSION…”
