“You share an experience

It’s simple. If you want to understand the place you are travelling in, simply get to know the people who live there.

The People-To-People Experience pairs inquisitive travellers with volunteer locals from ten different islands and all walks of life. This unique opportunity offers the chance to connect on a deeper level with those generous enough to open their homes and hearts to travellers like you.

“You share an
experience
not just of a light
sightseeing nature, but
something more with
the heart in it.”
- Beverly Wallace-Whitfield,
People-To-People Ambassador
