Our trips are conceived and accompanied by Creative Organizers (we call them CO’s) whose special quality is unique to Alyra.

“It is not where you go that matters but rather who takes you there.”

They are multicultural in that although they now live in North America while they know and often come from the destination being visited. This allows us to discover many hidden treasures since our COs have the key contacts (families and friends) and know the country inside and out. Our CO’s bring much more value to a trip than a traditional guide. It is because of their passion for sharing their intricate knowledge of the cultural heritage that they can make the key judgments on what to do and what not to do to. Thus, ensuring a trip like no other yet that would not be at all the same without the COs’ presence.

Since personal contact with the local culture is what makes the exchange authentic, our COs give us the opportunity to be received like locals. Their contacts make the cultural exchange possible: we meet people that are not trying to sell us anything, but rather, live and work in different industries and are open to communicating and sharing their time with ours.
