Quite possibly the most important part of your experience is based on your guide. Global U guides are part teacher, part friend, part mentor and part storyteller. Above all, they should keep you safe. Our guides are experts in their field and have years of experience in their chosen destination, whether it’s the city, the countryside or far off the beaten path. In most cases, they are the second or third generation in their family to lead our trips.
We enjoy our meals, and we make sure that you will too. Nothing tastes as good as a hot lunch after a day on tour. That’s why we provide delicious meals that nourish your body and soul with food that is always authentic, and always local to that destination. We also take great care in recognizing issues people have with various foods (religious or dietary issues are always accommodated). Our staff knows how to deal with it and makes sure it does not alter your experience.
Where you lay your head at the end of the day depends on your chosen itinerary. You might spend the night with a family in China, or at a centrally located hotel in the heart of Paris or on an island like Venice. All of these options will be centrally located and not require a great deal of commuting time each day. We also do not offer quad rooming as that will impact the rest that is deserved at the end of a long day touring. Wherever you choose to rest, we promise that you will be comfortable and well-rested the next day.
