WHAT WE BELIEVE

We believe that stepping outside of our own experience is the beginning of growth.  We believe in dialogue.  We believe in listening and learning from people who are different from us.  We believe that travel without experience is a missed opportunity.  We believe that exploring new cultures and meeting new people broadens worldviews and creates change-makers.   We believe in the goodness of humanity, but that good intentions alone are not enough.  We believe in Intentional Tourism.

The intentional tour


The intentional tour


At Intentional Tours, we propose a different way to travel and experience a new culture. We individually curate and lead group trips, providing authentic cross-cultural experiences and a deepened understanding of the history and culture of the region.  We are committed to offering the learning and personal growth experience of a service trip, with the pleasure and relaxation of an all-inclusive resort, while maximizing the impact of our presence in the communities we visit.  Join us on our next group trip to take in beautiful landscapes, enjoy the sights, sounds, and flavors of a new country, share a meal in a local home, or hike to a waterfall that you won't find in any guidebook. (Learn more about Intentional Tourism here)

Join a group of like-minded travelers or enjoy a private trip with a group of 8 or more friends or family.

 


Your passion for erasing geopolitical lines in favor of a shared humanity is a gift you have shared with us.
