Our Local Partners
Our partners overseas are completely integral to the creation and implementation of all of our family holidays. Without this input from local experts we would not be able to create such exceptional experiences for families in such remarkable locations.
Our families always comment on the local team that they meet when they are on holiday as they add such a wealth of insight to a holiday, we always want our families to really get to experience the best that a region can offer and in the best possible way and our local guides help is to achieve this.
We visit all of our destinations and count our overseas partners as our friends; some of our staff even spend their holidays with their families at our destinations. They have such a passion for the areas in which they live and work and by getting to know them and their destinations we can share this with our clients.
We work soley with the best possible guides and instructors
We are of course very choosey about who we work with and safety is absolutely central to all we do. We work solely with the best possible guides and instructors, they may not always be the cheapest, but they are the best at what they do, we do not compromise.
We hope that through our wonderful relationships with our partners, your family will have the most memorable holiday possible.
Since day one we have always employed local guides to run the activities you enjoy so much on an Activities Abroad holiday. The reasons are threefold;
1. Local guides are absolutely crucial to both your enjoyment and your safety. We could never send you white water rafting or dog sledding with somebody who doesn’t know the local terrain like the back of his or her hand. There is much said about the value of local knowledge but when it comes to adventurous activities it is vital that your guide knows exactly what they are doing and where they are going.
2. We believe that the local economy should benefit from your presence and by employing local people, we help provide employment and incomes in what are often rural areas with very few opportunities.
3. The additional advantage of local guides is that they can illuminate your activities with tales of the local history, culture, fauna, flora, environment and, whisper it quietly, children very often find themselves being unwittingly educated while on holiday (shh...we won’t tell if you don’t).
