Covid 19’s impact on Travel has been well documented. James details the story of one particular individual from his recent Sri Lanka trip.
Guides play a very important part of any ETG trip. They’re the ones who bring to life their own countries and help provide an insight into everyday life there.
In Sri Lanka, Oman & Bhutan we have guides who travel around the country with you. In our other destinations, you’ll have the same guide with you for some of the trip and if visiting cities you’re most likely to have a guide from that city to help bring your time there alive. Of course all our trips are personalised so the amount of time you spend with guides is totally up to you and if you have particular special interests then we’ll match you with the right guide.
This archive will hopefully illustrate why we think a guide can add so much to your holiday experience. There are interviews and stories about their lives and why they decided to become guides and the trials and tribulations this has involved.

Once you start looking into practical details of your Sri Lanka trip, you’ll notice two potential dilemmas.
1) How are you going to get around the country? – It’s quite difficult to reach all the major sights using public transport and taxis won’t be willing to go the distances you need.
2) How are you going to delve beneath the surface of the culture? – You may be wondering how you’re going to meet the locals in authentic ways to get an understanding of the country.
Here I’m going to explain why hiring a chauffeur guide solves both problems and creates a brilliant holiday experience.
