REAL CONNECTIONS


Trafalgar & Real Connections

To us, travel is about forging real connections with the people and places you visit, immersing yourself in their culture and beginning to see each destination through a local lens. Our trips let you Connect With Locals and meet the people that make each place so special. Our exclusive Be My Guest experiences let you dine in the homes of local community members, learning their history and getting a glimpse of their daily lives.

You’ll peel back the layers and discover the best local places to visit thanks to our Travel Director’s Hidden Gems, and you’ll Dive Into Culture with all five senses. Thanks to your Stays with Stories, even your accommodation immerses you in the local cultural and historical heritage. Best of all, throughout your journey, you’ll have a chance to Make A Difference to the people you’ve visited along the way. You’ll travel like a local and uncover the true essence of each place you go in a way few travellers ever will.

True Travel Connections

The can’t-wait-to-explore moment when you embark on a new adventure? Perhaps it’s the moment you connect with a local.

- Connect With Locals | Be My Guest

Our story began in 2009 with the Esposito sisters, who invited us into their home in Sorrento, Italy. From these humble beginnings a decade go, we now offer Be My Guest experiences exclusively on every trip, each boasting a rare opportunity to see a destination through a local's lens.

- Experience the pleasure of food & travel

Whether tasting locally produced cheeses in Switzerland or sipping a world class Chianti in a Tuscan vineyard, there's nothing like the pure, unadulterated joy of food while travelling.

Will definitely recommend

Excellent customer service. The tour director was so knowledgeable and the driver Tom was great. The local tour guides really made their history come to life.

Overall excellent experience

This trip was well run with good local guides. Driver was great and Pedro was a great fount of knowledge about his country. He always had surprises and treats for us too.

Absolutely great tour with great people

The tour director and coach driver, Dave and John, were excellent. Dave played DVD's on the less picturesque drives that prepared us for where we were going next. His knowledge of the area was awesome. The local specialists and the "be our guest" dinner experience were also great.
