Always looking for new, meaningful travel experiences, Trafalgar’s Be My Guest experiences were born out of the knowledge that destinations can only truly be brought to life through authentic local connections.

Put simply, nothing connects you to the soul of a place like being invited into the home of a local. Whether it’s exploring a 1000-year-old Castle with an Italian aristocrat or tasting olive oil with a local Sevillian family, connecting with locals is at the heart of real travel experiences and Trafalgar’s Be My Guest hosts, are at the centre of every one.

Looking for a new way to foster real, powerful connections for guests that enabled them to capture the true essence of a destination, the first Be My Guest experience took place in 2009 at a Sorrento lemon farm owned by the Espositos sisters, relatives of a Travel Director. Over a home-cooked meal, some limoncello, with the scent of lemons in the air and a coach full of raving guests, it was swiftly apparent that the sisters' farm was just the kind of powerful sensory travel experience guests were after. Fast forward a decade, Trafalgar now offers 103 one-of-a-kind experiences around the world, each bringing out the essence of a destination, and many travel highlights.

With a decade to celebrate, there’s never been a better time to plan your next Trafalgar guided holiday.

5 Reasons a Be My Guest Experience is a must on your next holiday

Trafalgar’s exclusive Be My Guest experiences go beyond major cities and head for the hills, where locals can provide not only a new way of thinking, but insight into their daily lives and culture. Here are 5 reasons a Be My Guest experience is a highlight for Trafalgar's guests. There are now 103 unique Be My Guest experiences across a range of countries and cultures, solely run for Trafalgar guests, giving you a truly authentic and exclusive experience.

Sustain Local Communities

Every Be My Guest experience gives back to the community, ensuring that the people and places you visit thrive, not only today but far into the future.

Uncover the Soul of the Places you Visit

Truly experiencing life like a local when you travel can be rare. On a Be My Guest experience you will meet your host, speak with them about their world, learn from them, and dine with them through enriching experiences they have created solely for Trafalgar Tours.

Get to the Heart of a Destination

When you have a Be My Guest experience on your Trafalgar tour you are not just visiting the sights of the destination, you are touching the lives of, often, multi-generational families who offer you an exclusive look into their daily lives. These experiences are hard to create as an independent traveller. With Trafalgar's Be My Guest experiences you are not just visiting Scotland, you are dining at a centuries old family-farm!

An Unforgettable Experience

The Be My Guest experience can give you life changing moments, sparking renewed thinking driven by the insights you will gain into how the locals truly live. It can seed new ideas and values you will take back to your own life.

Uncovering the soul and culture of a place is one of the most rewarding and exciting experiences you can have in life and Trafalgar continues to maintain, support, and provide locals and guests with a one-of-a-kind travel experience.
