Our Staff Is The Backbone Of Our Company
Our office staff consists of an international mix of dedicated travelers, outdoor enthusiasts and travel professionals, that bring insider knowledge and passion to the work we do. Our detailed knowledge allows us to design awesome tours and train and support our tour directors while in the field. We speak German, Spanish, English, French and Italian in the office. Our multi-cultural backgrounds allow us to understand the needs of each nationality.
Our tour directors are carefully selected individuals that meet the highest industry standards. Many of them are certified by local guide schools and speak multiple languages, including English, French, Spanish, Italian, German, and Portuguese. Our tour directors are local people that live in North America. We do NOT import tour directors from Europe, but give your groups the chance to meet local experts.
Most of our tour directors have been with our company for many years. They come from all walks of life, and choose to work for us because of our integrity and passion for what we do. We choose people for their enthusiasm and integrity, not their ability to sell optionals. We believe that the customer’s vacation experience comes first, and that optional tours should only enhance the experience. Our tour directors go out of their way to accommodate special requests and provide exceptional experiences.
Our multi-lingual driver-guides comply with all government set safety requirements for the transportation industry. They are qualified drivers as well as qualified guides. Our hiking guides lead all the hikes, facilitate the cooking and all group activities, as well as give extensive commentary and information. ALL of our driver-guides are registered with the National Parks, BLM and National Forest Service as official guides. ALL of our driver-guides are First Aid, CPR and “Leave no Trace” certified.
