Private Guides


‘People don’t take trips, trips take people.’

– John Steinbeck

The private guide is the adventurous lynch pin of any itinerary. Host, expert and grand facilitator, he or she takes many forms, from helicopter pilot to wildlife guide to anthropologist to specialised chef, and is capable of turning the promise of an extraordinary itinerary into something truly great. It’s why we’ve made a point of making professional guiding a central component of our sales desk, in the form of Kyle de Nobrega, Squack Evans, and Will Jones, and why we take great care to pair travellers with guides that know their needs and wants inside out. For examples of who we work with, see below.
