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.
For those considering how they’ll get around the vast country of Myanmar (Burma), you may be wondering whether it’s worth hiring a driver and guide for parts of your trip. We believe they help you to maximise your experience in the country and are great value for money; they’ll really get you under the surface, providing an insider’s perspective on all the things you see.
