Context Travel: Private Guides and Very Small Group Tours
As expert travel advisors, one of our missions is to be constantly on the hunt for exceptional experiences for our clients and readers.
And, as we send hundreds and hundreds of folks to Europe each year, a reputable tour guide service is an essential arrow in our quiver.
That is why I was excited to see Context accepted into our Virtuoso Travel Network in January. You see, Context has gone out of their way to have only the very best docents (not guides), AND they offer enriching tours with a maximum of 6 people in the group.
Now, that’s my kind of tour! Don’t you agree?
The Context vision is to create an atmosphere—a context, if you will—for curious travelers to engage with local experts; to give them access to places and cultures that might otherwise remain out of sight to the casual visitor; to invite them off the tourist track and into the real life of the people, history, and culture that makes these cultural capitals amazing. With no more than six other people, you’ll participate in an intimate, hands-on, conversational experience. No Tour Guides – Our “docents” are first and foremost scholars or specialists, with MAs, Ph.D.s or other terminal degrees in their fields of study.
Carol and I have heard good things about Context not only from our peers in the industry, but from our clients as well.
Therefore, when Carol and I again visit Paris in a few weeks, we’re going to take Context for a spin on their Baguette to Bistro: Paris Food Tour.
We’ll take lots of photographs and tell you about our experience when we return. In the meantime, if you would like to explore Context Travel for private guides and very small group tours, CLICK HERE.
