Due to the pandemic, our teams on the ground have been facing new logistical challenges alongside heightened hygiene concerns, so we have made the decision to put our Guide Connect initiative on pause for the time being. In the meantime, you can find out more about our guides below.
Welcome to Guide Connect
Our guides are at the heart of everything we do and the holiday experiences that we create. We are immensely proud to work with a group of such exceptionally talented individuals in each of our destinations, and we love being able to spend time with them during our own travels in Asia.
On most guided holidays, it is typical for guests to first meet their guide on arrival at their destination, usually at their arrival airport, but now, as a Selective Asia client, you can be introduced to your first guide before you travel, using our new innovative system (and unique to Selective Asia) - Guide Connect.
We believe that gaining a little insight into each other’s interests and lives before you meet will give you both a head start, enhancing those first hours you spend with your guide, and helping to remove any uncertainties about who you’ll be spending time with and whether they’ll be the right match for you.
On a personal level, over the years we’ve been fortunate enough to cultivate meaningful connections and relationships with our guides. Some of our team remain in contact with guides for months and years following trips they have taken. The guides we work with are an exceptional bunch and are truly passionate about both their work and destinations they work in.
Your Destination Specialist will be happy to discuss Guide Connect with you and answer any questions you might have.
Please note: Guide Connect is not sadly not operational in some destinations (including Sandakan & Kuching in Malay Borneo, Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, Japan, Nepal, Bhutan, India or any stopover destinations), but we are working hard at delivering it in these destinations.
