Why Cultural Holidays?
In many ways it is difficult to describe what a cultural holiday is. Everyone will have their own view on what to expect on a cultural holiday, but if you think of it as travel with the opportunity to interact with the local people; you are not too far off. What these interactions are, where they occur and how they take place are what make a memorable holiday.
There is one word that should always be used when thinking about cultural holidays; Genuine. If you have ever attended and felt let down by the ‘cultural experience ‘evening on a standard package holiday, then you will understand what we mean. Genuine social interactions cannot be booked in advance or paid for. On our cultural holidays and tours we are looking for that special moment, that bit of in depth knowledge that can only come from someone with a deep understanding of the culture you are experiencing.
This is why on an Undiscovered Destinations cultural holiday you will find that your guide is local. No guide sent from the UK or elsewhere will have the same cultural understanding of the country or region that you are travelling in.
Some local guides may not have an encyclopaedic knowledge of the facts and figures of every place you visit (do you know that much knowledge about your local area?) but what they do know is what these sites mean to the local people. They understand the meaning behind the facts and figures.
Only with this local knowledge can you come away from your travels satisfied that you have really experienced the destinations and that what you have experienced has been genuine.
