Lets say you’ve decided to go on a on a holiday. The first few questions you would normally ask yourself is where you want to go, what you would like to do, how you would like get there, where you would stay, so on and so forth. Obviously, going on holiday takes planning, and this is where travel agents come in. They claim to take the load off your shoulders and do the planning for you, presenting you with a fully planned itinerary.

However, most times, the planned itinerary, turns out to more of a bother than a boon. Which is why most people nowadays, don’t mind spending a bit of time to do some research to plan their own holidays. But not all tour operators are bad, especially the ones that cater specifically to experiential travel.

The mindset of travellers are changing. They no longer want the usual cookie-cutter package tourism experience. We want to travel better and immerse ourselves in experiencing a country or place by connecting to its people and culture on a deeper level. Travel operators like Scott Dunn have taken notice of this trend and are curating private journeys for discerning travellers to destinations around the world.

“Our guest base from Asia Pacific has been growing steadily for some time with the increasing demand for experiential travel,” says Andrew Dunn, Founder and President, Scott Dunn.

Unlike most run-of-mill travel operators, experiential travel operators have first-hand experiences of their specialist area, offering valuable personal insights and a wealth of knowledge not accessible through conventional travel agents, websites or search engines. So you can be sure that your experience will be tailor-made just for you. You’ll be amazed at the breadth of services that are available to you; and you won’t have to worry about keeping to a dreaded and boring itinerary either.
