THE ACCOMPLISHED TRAVELLER
How they Change Worlds: By delivering their stamp of approval to only the most life-changing experiences
The Accomplished Traveler is a lifestyle travel concierge company created by Jason Miller, whose passion lies in designing exquisite, out-of-the ordinary, life-changing experiences. Their clients are sophisticated, savvy, accomplished travellers, for whom – be it for leisure, business, or celebration – travel is a way of life. Just as important as where they sojourn is how their clients experience their destination.
As accomplished travellers themselves, they have an innate knowledge and understanding of each property and experience that they recommend. The close relationships they cultivate around the world with the most elite in the travel industry ensure that they not only deliver, but surpass, their clients’ highest expectations. Their travellers look to them for their keen eye to detail, flawless execution, unparalleled VIP service and most tellingly – their stamp of approval.
FAR HORIZONS ARCHAEOLOGICAL AND CULTURAL TRIPS
How they Change Worlds: By working with scientists and academics to create truly authentic cultural experiences
The team at Far Horizons Archaeological and Cultural Trips takes pride in having extensive knowledge of their destinations. Their contacts include scientists who work in each country, making their tours memorable and truly unique.
As a tour company that benefits from the cultural and natural riches of their destinations, from their first trip they have had a policy of donating to appropriate organisations, projects and museums. This has created a bond with the academic community that has helped them establish an extensive list of contacts at each of their destinations. On a Far Horizons journey, travellers enjoy private lectures or tours of archaeological excavations by project directors or staff; partake in special events such as gala dinner parties attended by area archaeologists; and experience behind-the-scenes views of artifacts at museums. Participant satisfaction is so high that 80% of those who travel with them once return again and again.
SEA TO SUMMIT
How they Change Worlds: By injecting their love of adventure into each of their experiences
Sea to Summit are adventure travel enthusiasts that have had first-hand experience in organizing their own trips, for themselves, their families and friends. It was from this love of travel and adventure that Sea to Summit was born. Their passion for travel is truly authentic, as all of the team have travelled across the glorious seven continents trying out different experiences. Sea to Summit offers an informative itinerary using their first-hand experiences as a guideline to plan their one-of-a-kind dream vacation. Each journey they arrange is unique and customised to suit each client’s interests and their own personal bucket list.
All destinations have been visited by the team, so they know and understand everything needed. Since they are an independent group of travellers, and are passionate about what they do and where they go, it is imperative that they give each of their clients their knowledge by sharing their experiences. They do not market specific brands but are known to recommend only the best that each destination has to offer.
