Why Take a Guided Tour?

Yamagata Guide

Travel is an Adventure

But at times, it is also a challenge. Where do you go? How do you get there? What does this mean? While many take pleasure in the thrill of traversing a new land, stepping foot into the unknown, and exploring what we have yet to learn, with travel also comes uncertainty. 

A guide, however, brings trust. Trust that you will get from one destination to another. Trust that you know what you are ordering at a restaurant. And trust that no matter how far off the beaten path you go, that you will always find your way to where you are going.

Guides are more than just travel attendants. They are storytellers, teachers, and people who love the places they visit so much, that they have dedicated their entire lives to conveying that charm to others.

So why take a guided tour? Because in order to travel like a local, the best person to travel with, is a local.

Through experiencing new challenges, students develop personal growth, independence, and the cross-cultural communication skills needed to navigate an ever-globalizing world.
