We absolutely loved our time in China and booking through Travel Local made everything so much easier. The guides were ace - so knowledgeable and friendly. We’d never done a trip like this before and it really took all the hassle and stress out of everything as we didn’t need to worry about airport transfers or getting tickets for attractions. Max was also really helpful and supportive in the run up to the trip and made sure we’d done things like get our visa sorted. Great experience.

I had wanted to book a holiday in Jordan that used locally owned businesses and hotels as much as possible. Travellocal put me in touch with a great loval agency who organised everything efficiently, taking all our concerns into account, and making sure all the formalities were completed quickly and easily. I thoroughly recommend them. Thanks for letting me have the most relaxing holiday in years!

We have just booked a two week tour of Costa Rica with Travellocal. We liked the ethos of the organisation in that it uses and supports local people rather than big tour operators. Service so far has been quick, efficient, responsive to our requests, friendly and knowledgeable. The website/messages are very easy to use. Our bespoke itinerary matches what we asked for and is well priced. We look forward to our trip in a few months' time!

Travel Local was very easy to use and helped us create our ideal vacation in a place we are very foreign to. We feel happy with our itinerary and the cost, probably couldn’t have done the trip much cheaper ourselves. The website made it easy to see every part of our trip and the pictures from each helped. The travel agents were very quick to respond and make changes to our itinerary as many times as we wanted.

Effortlessly planned a trip at the spare of the moment and turned my usual organised chaos into the perfect professional tour. The people in Morocco were so helpful and it was incredible to have your local team with us at every turn. Well done , what a great idea

What Makes TravelLocal Stand Out?

They are known for custom and tailor-made tours, designed specifically for you by local experts. As their name suggests, TravelLocal makes your experience uniquely you as well as uniquely destination specific. With insight from locals who are experts in planning travel, you’ll come away with a perfect trip crafted to your personality and interests.

Who Will Enjoy Traveling With TravelLocal?

TravelLocal experiences will be best enjoyed by culturally curious people who are seeking a deeper kind of travel experience.

Perhaps you traveled a lot before, but stuck to well established guide books, took in the tourist sites, and never ventured as far off the beaten path as you wanted to. TravelLocal will help even experienced travelers take that next step, by providing unique new ways to see your favorite destinations, and make new destinations come to light.

Their trips are popular with ‘empty nesters' - older couples in their 50s, 60s, and 70s whose children have left home. TravelLocal itineraries are in a mid-high budget (you can expect anything from 3 to 5 star accommodation).

Top Destinations

Currently their most densely covered areas for local expertise include Africa, Asia, South America and Middle East. Though they also have options available in the Caucasus (Armenia and Georgia) and Iceland. Their local experts can craft your experience based on years of experience living in and experiencing all walks of local life in these countries.

TravelLocal Travel Style

Typically your trip will include a private guide and driver. Accommodations are not treated as an afterthought - you will stay in boutique local accommodations that reflect the character of the destination.

You will control the pace of your itinerary.

Why Choose a Tour With TravelLocal?

If you are looking for a unique local experience, with special in depth insights and experiences provided by a local expert in the destination, TravelLocal will be perfect for you.

These kinds of tours are best suited to travelers who like having a lot of input over their itinerary and generally have a strong idea about what they want to see, do, and experience.

In their own words, “We believe that if you're planning a trip somewhere, it makes sense to do that with an expert on the ground in your destination. We connect you to the best locally owned travel companies around the world to do just that - better for you, better for your destination.
