How we can help

We offer different levels of travel design services in addition to our small group journeys to meet different travel styles; we know many of you like the thrill of researching and designing your own trips, but we are here to cut through the instagram influencers, promoted listings and give you the real-DL on what is worth the splurge and what’s not...

When you reach out to us for travel design or planning advice, we will discuss several options for working with us;

  • A basic package including bookings for Accommodations only

  • A mid-level package with Accommodations + All transfers

  • A full concierge service including bookings, transfers, reservations and activities from the moment you touch down in country until the time you leave.

Once we have identified how we will be working together we will start a rigorous discovery process which includes travel questionnaires, SKYPE calls, and preliminary itinerary options with budget/costing.

We will then finalize all of your bookings, take a deposit to confirm and work on getting you all the info you need prior to your departure.


Why choose Globe + Tribe?

At GLOBE + TRIBE our emphasis is on exceptional travel design to uncommon or 'frontier' destinations or just uncommon adventures in ordinary places. We pride ourselves on matching the interests of our clients with some of the most stunning locations and off-the-beaten path journeys, with a keen focus on our brand of 'purposeful tourism' for development + conservation. Our focus is on finding something different, something unique and something away from the ordinary. If your travel goal is to tick off all of the highlights on a bus then we are not the agency best suited to assist you. Our clients come to us when they have done all the other stuff and now want to go deeper OR when they just don’t want to do the other stuff and want to go deeper from the get-go.

Can’t I do this on my own?

Maybe- but depends on the place! For many journeys you can use blogs or trip advisor. Maybe you love sinking weeks into the endless decision trees that come with planning such as:

  1. How do I arrange overland transport?

  2. Is this hotel/lodge really worth the price-tag?

  3. Who has the most expert-level guiding?

  4. How long should we stay here?

  5. Will we be rushing about too much?

  6. Is this area safe to explore alone?

  7. What are the Park fees? Conservation fees? Conservancy fees? Camping fees? Do I have to pay for all four?

  8. What is the best routing to take?

  9. What is the safest regional airline?

  10. What if the lodge doesn't have Campari?

And then we would ask you, how valuable is your time?
