Have you ever wanted to live like a local for a while when visiting an exotic international location? Tourist areas, famous landmarks, and beautiful natural scenery offer a pleasant trip, but true immersion in the day to day happenings of Earth's most fascinating places creates the types of memories that will last forever.


Unpack your bags at an Amazon jungle lodge, a farmhouse in the Tuscan countryside, or a unique Icelandic home. These places are chosen for their charm and unique ways of life that cannot be experienced anywhere else. Your local hosts can help you discover all the best of the immediate area so you can truly capture the flavour of these destinations.


Exploration and experience are the twin heartbeats of international travel. You may not have a flag to plant atop an uncharted mountain, but that does not mean you cannot explore new horizons and step outside your everyday existence for a while.


That is what we designed our Local Living tours to be. You get local culture and food, historic information, a new adventure in a unique location, and fond memories that last.

Accommodations are not in an impersonal hotel. You will stay in a local's home.

Although the places you go and people you meet will never be far from your lodgings, you will be happy to return there every day to relax and interact with the host. The insider information about the region should prove invaluable to experiencing all the destination has to offer.


Travel with complete flexibility and the choices you make.

No tour guide will hurry you onto a bus or pull you away from an interesting location before you are ready. You help to create the itinerary and can ignore it whenever you want. Something sparks your interest, explore. We provide an inspiring home to stay in, a local host ready to help you and answer questions, and suggestions for outings in the local area. You take the reins and make the journey into your ideal experience.


Sink into your destination and live like a local.

Lend a hand with fresh pasta making in San Gimignano and then enjoyable outside on the terrace. Follow the footsteps gone before up the Path of the Gods on the Amalfi Post. Deep in the Amazon jungle, live like a native and try out blowgun hunting. Settle down amid warm cushions in a Mongolian yurt. Live like a local and let their lives sink into your heart and mind.


Enjoy a home away from home in the far reaches of the Earth.

Heartfelt connections to new parts of the world are difficult to forge when you spend much of your time in an impersonal hotel room. Our Local Living journeys allow you to settle in to one home and become a part of the everyday world going on around you. What types of homes could you stay in? We offer journeys to converted European farmhouses, single-family homes, Masai villages, Mongolian camps, and jungle homestays far off the beaten track.


Live like you were born there.

You do not follow a schedule created by another in your day-to-day life, and we believe you should not on a Local Living holiday either. Instead, we recommend scheduled events and activities but leave the decision about whether to go or not up to you. Is the weather great and you'd like some physical activity? Take a hike through places of natural beauty. Did not get enough sleep one night? Plan a relaxing day instead. If you ever run out of ideas, your host can recommend something for everyone.


Be a part of an international community.

Learn what life is really like and some of the most fabulous places on earth with a Local Living tour. Experience full immersion in life on the Amalfi Coast, the Mongolian steppes, Tuscany in Europe, or Thailand's picturesque hills.


Personal discoveries wait in the most unique destinations.

Unpack your suitcase only ones when you arrive at the Icelandic house, a farm in Tuscany, homestay in the Amazon jungle, or other unique locations around the globe. You will share new experiences and discoveries with other adventurers and a knowledgeable guide.


Build lifelong memories on our full immersion Living Local tours.
