Born out of the knowledge that destinations can only truly be brought to life through authentic local connections, Trafalgar’s Be My Guest experiences have reshaped travel.
Why Home Visits Are the Secret to Truly Authentic Travel
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 1,000-year-old castle with an Italian aristocrat before enjoying some of his organic wine and a farm-to-table meal, 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 center 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 Italy—still one of Trafalgar’s most popular destinations—at a Sorrento lemon farm owned by the Esposito sisters, relatives of a Trafalgar Travel Director. Over a home-cooked meal and some limoncello, with the scent of lemons in the air and a coach full of delighted guests, it was quickly apparent that the sisters’ farm was just the kind of powerful, sensory travel experience guests were after.
Fast forward a decade: Trafalgar offers all its guests the opportunity to experience Be My Guest around the world. With the exception of a handful of cruise or city-focused itineraries, every Trafalgar guest gets to experience the magic of Be My Guest for themselves, guaranteed.
